Where are you finding this cloth? Who sells it?
If I'd known that I would live this long I'd have taken better care of myself.

Installed skins today , look real good so far. Leaving them dry over night ,will trim tomorrow and spray with spar. How mant coats do you guys recommend? will try and post pics, although haven't had much luck with that lol.

I bought the cloth from 3 rivers archery. They have copperhead and rattlesnake print.

The cloth skins turned out excellent, put 6 coats of urethane on them. Everyone that's seen it think their real skins lol. like to post some pics how do I do that from my phone? There was no loss of performance from the skin application at all.

Hey Wapitshooter, Did you end up using Titebond to adhere the cloth to the bow and was the bow glass backed?  Thanks!

Years ago I put the decal snakeskins from Onestringer on my bow, but after seeing those pictures from Jonathan Cook, I just might have to switch to the cloth type. Mark, please post some pictures of how yours came out!
