I have to sand and spray it .

You're among friends here, we won't complain about seeing it without makeup. I just want to see a couple overall shots of it to see the profiles and how it all looks in its final form. Before I order a kit for one, anyway. :bigsmyl:

Yep you will like it I have made these bows between 58” & 64” both in glass and glass carbon & shortened the risers 12 & 13 “ all where great performers very adaptable  design ,I have one in the works now 56” 12” riser ! also shortened the power lam on a few, it’s hard to go wrong with the design !

Mike I will dig out my notes but if I remember right I used the 60” @28 50lb stack and 12” riser  cut 1” off the super lam for a 60” @31”  48 lb don’t quote me on it let me see if I can find my notes , I built that bow thinking it would shoot heavy arrows better but it worked better with light arrows ,I posted it in a thread a while back ! maybe I put the specs there !

"If you think an inch of draw doesn’t do much , study those numbers!!!

Long armed guys get free fps lol"

Crap I've been goin at this all wrong. I was uppin my poundage to get some more speed outta my 26" draw length. WHen all the while I shoulda be tryin to grow some longer arms.
...stood alone on a montaintop, starin out at a great divide, I could go east, I could go West, it was all up to me to decide, just then I saw a young hawk flyin and my soul began to rise......

But still no more pictures I notice. I guess I should stop complaining about my 28" draw in this case. At least us short people get to use shorter bows that are handier to carry...

   or you could shorten your fingers...   :thumbsup:  :laughing:

on my bows i get about 9 fps extra for an extra inch of draw...   i just thought of something though... if you draw an extra inch you gain an extra 2 or so pounds... so to be fair you only gain about an extra 5 fps for an inch of draw...  i know it seams obvious but i never really thought about it like that... i more or less always gave credit to the extra inch and not the added draw weight... 

   sometimes more things are bought to light for me by reading things on the forum and answering my own questions...    :biglaugh:  :shaka:

The longer draw = longer power stroke will be faster. But if you if you keep the same GPP with the added pounds of the longer draw it wont be as much.
Kenny that is looking good at full draw.

Well, after much work and a little hunting, I may sand on her some more today and try to shoot some finish...

Gotta get her done and some arrows tuned, will be sitting a ground blind shortly I think...
Stay sharp, Kenny.
