Tiller check? :)
« on: September 13, 2018, 04:41:22 pm »
Should I get the mid to outers working a bit more? Particularly the bottom limb?

All opinions welcome.  :)

I would work on the outers. Those aren't really recurves they are reflexed limbs. They should straighten out.

  I think your tiller is just about perfect for that unbraced profile. If you allow them to straighten out they will take some set and raise your string angles. I bet it shoots very fast where you have it now.

 I think your string angle looks awsome I agree bet its fast , these R/D bows can be deceptive especialy with short bows  if you change that angle you lose all your performance maybe Ben will chime in he has a keen eye for tiller on these ,looks great to me if it where mine !

Fulldraw looks pretty good to me, the real challenge with this shape is narrowing the outers without losing stability. If you do it right you will have a real smooth and very fast bow!
And what Badger said is true. You can clearly see the transition from the deflex to the reflex from the top limb in the fulldraw pic. This is a tricky spot with these bows and you can easily kill all the performance by overstressing that part.

Thanks guys. I've found these bows to be particularly tricky to tiller for all the reasons you've pointed out. I REALLY appreciate your input, as it takes a lot of work to get to this point and it will be great if it ends up worth the effort.

I agree with Steve.

Yep, I agree with everything Badger said.  How's bracing it?  I don't see how that bow won't be a good performer.  Great work to get it to this point.  It's holding reflex really well.
Can't wait to see her finished up!

OK, I don't know anything (how's that for a disclaimer), but is the bottom limb straightening out jussstt a bit more than the top one?

Does anyone have any photo editing software and skills? I would like to see the three pictures overlaid on each other.
