Bamboo Backed Osage
« on: December 14, 2017, 12:42:25 pm »
Here's another one, Like the title says, One of James Parker's Glue ups he was selling at the Classic in May. This is the longbow version, like I need another one. I just did the final tillering and shot about 50 arrows through it and it is pretty zippy. This bow is 64" N to N, 55# at 29". I made it almost a pure center Shot bow and wrapped the handle with hemp, really like the stuff for hunting.

James does a nice airbrush job on the Boo and that's what caught my eye and had to have it. And I love this kind of design. Easy to string and smooth to shoot. Also very quiet. Finished the tips off with some iridescent ebony I had.

 If you have to pull the trigger, is it really archery?

Thank you, Ed. James makes it easier.

Rob, Pat's old and been growing his since the 70's. I've shaved mine twice since the Classic in May. ::)

The profiles look really nice. I bet it's zippy indeed!
