Pretty dumb going out to shoot without a string, yet you can decipher a DFC?

I don't watch the Olympic archers because they shoot vanes.

There is a reason this is called Trad Gang...

   I simply forgot to make the string for it... If you never forgot something and wanna call that dumb... Go right ahead...  But not as dumb as writing in yellow so you can hardly decipher the words...   :biglaugh:

   Trad Gang??  You sportin' a black leather jacket and go around terrifying old ladies??   :laughing:

   This target shooting stuff is all in Vane, Roy....   :biglaugh:  It seems to be getting harder instead of easier...  You really have to concentrate and try hard to make smaller groups...

  Here are a couple of pics....  I was not shooting well today...  My friday started wed. and I have not shot for a week...  But I managed to pull these groups off at 20yds... 

  It's hard to see because of the background but that arrow was a Robin Hood...  A true Robin Hood...  That arrow was pretty damn close to center...  I am taking that as a Good Omen...

   So far I like her and I like how she looks...  She has good heft and is a stable shooting platform...  Weighed in at 39#...  I might take some off the last half of the limbs and bring her down to 37 to 38#...  The whole bow weighs in at 3lb. 7oz....  I might look for a solid brass ornament to attach just south of the grip for added weight...

Rich what's the concept with how the limbs are sitting on the end of the riser?

Never seen anything like that.

Yeah,  looks like there's some sort of roller under the wedges.
