Can you get a little bend above and below the handle, just off the fades. It looks quite stiff there.

It’s bending all the way to the fades

Need to work on the left side

Bigger ellipse roy

You sure the bow is sitting level in the cradle?
Looks high on the right side.

Your picture is small vertical wise.

Attach it with the option at the bottom instead of how you are doing it.

the tips are level at the top of the tiller tree plywood


Is this enough to down here?
Pain in the butt to tiller, It's been looking good up to now.
The middle of the bow does not matter, The tip timing is what we are doing
Thanks Roy

It's kind of going back a forth a couple times.
I'm sliding the handle left or right  while I pull the rope.
So not yet.
I got a new picture roy :banghead:

I level the riser from fade to fade and don't worry where the tips are.

The tips/limbs are going to change while tillering.

I tiller for equal limb timing by keeping my tree pull rope tracking the vertical line on the wall which is aligned to where my middle finger will be on the bow string.

I could care less where the tips are or if the tiller is positive or negative.

My bows shoot great and are whisper quiet.

Out past the 2 humps on each side of the riser it's basically flat, look at the unbraced picture Reply # 74.
I went threw this at the Tennessee classic with the guy's there.

this bow has no level, the first thing I did when I laid it on the tree was shim the riser to get the tips level and glued on a shim, I'm not tillering the riser I'm getting the limbs some what bending the same and watching the tips.
Remember, this is a stick :tongue:
Trust me, It's the only way.
The ellipse is helping me alot.
