Ok... Maybe I'll name her Stephanie... After the grandmother that I adopted... Her husband, ol' Joe passed a few years back at 97... She is 100 and is now in a nursing home... I feel she does not have long to go... Her spirit could live on through my bow...

  Ran the bow through the chrony today... After tillering and such...  Bow came out to 37.5#...  Here are the results...  I have a 29" draw and may be shooting the 313gr. / 600 spine arrows with fletchings for competition...  (cause Roy told me)   :)  The bow came in a little light... I can shim them to get 39# and or I will make another set of limbs at 39 to 40# and since it's such a long bow I will lengthen the power lam by about 1 to 1 1/2" which may give me another 4 fps...  ( the Bue Effect)  :)

    37.5#         28"        29"

  407gr           180       188  fps          10.8 gpp
 
  380              187       194                10.1 gpp

  313              200       208                8.35 gpp

Very good Shredd. Should perhaps have Cody Greenwood test it, that is if you want to market it. Would be kind of official then.(not sure if that is the right way to say it in English)

    Thanks, Gents...   

 Flem, 28"...

   Bue, yes... I want to get another bow out to him...  I have one that shoots 191 to 192 fps but I want to send him a faster one to be top dog in as far as speed and I am working on quietness also... That means 196 fps...  Just have not had enough time to work on it... I did get some enquiries from people that saw his site... One or two sales but most were window shoppers and tire kickers...

Pics of bow...  First two pics at brace, 7" and 28"...   Second two pics, 7 3/4" and 28"... She's a done deal...  If I get used to her I might shoot her at the 3-D next weekend...

  Just ran a few arrows through her...  Little over 20 yds...  I think Steph is doing her job...
