Life is not a journey to the grave with the intentions of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body. But rather to slide in sideways, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming....WOW WHAT A RIDE!!

Welcome back, TJ. ;) Looks like you haven't lost your touch.  I think you could get each limb bending a bit just out of the fades but other than that, looks good.   Pat

Thanks Pat . That was my first BBO . I am still messing with it.
The maple bow was my first lefty. He was tickled to get it and is like a kid every time he shoots it

I like the maple also!! how much of the reflex that was put in the BBO stayed? Do you like working the Brazilian osage? Glad to see that you are making time around school for bows..

Not a lot of the reflex stayed. That type of Osage is a little different. I have nothing bad to say about it.
Thanks

They look pretty good other than what Pat said about the first one bending too much out of the fades. Jawge

Thanks Jawge. This is my first composite. It was a little different than a stave bow for me. The piece of Ipe stiffened it more than I was used to. Will try again

Very nice maple bow for your father. And bookmarked under Sept Self Bows of the Month.
