Title: July's Self Bow of the Month
Post by: OldBow on August 05, 2007, 10:12:38 am
Congratulations to Mark Baggett (Pappy) of Clarksville, Tennessee
His Black Locust Bow is July Self Bow of the Month
I finely finished my BL bow yesterday,I have shot about 150 arrows through it and no frets yet so I am pleased.It shoot where you look and no shock,Very smooth.It is 65 n-n 1 and 7/8 at the fades
to mid limb and tapered to less than 3/8 at the tips.It is covered with Timber rattler and the tip overlays are Buffalo horn that Justin gave me at the Classic.It is 52@26 and after shooting is flat
After rest has about 3/4 reflex.I think it will be a nice hunting bow.Hope you enjoy the pictures.


"hey pappy!  -  very nice bow! nice tiller and really good-looking w/the snakeskin and everything... - well, from what i can see the overlays look really good, too, and nice transition from backing to overlay as well. - my digi-cam has a 'makro' feature and a 'focus-on-spot' position; that make GREAT detailed photos...you know, i always learned by doing - even how digi-cams function         
again: very nice bow!" -frank

"Ooooo Weee that's a dandy! Fit and finish are top shelf...very nice bow" -Roger

"Very nice Pappy. I've always found BL to be a good bow wood" -Marc St. Louis

"terrific bow Pappy.  You'll have a BL to compare to soon as I'm putting the finishing touches on one. " -snedeker

You are right Mullet,it gets tougher and tougher every month,but I think that is a good thing.
I am just glad to see so many bows posted it has really grown the last few years.Greg I hope to
be successful with it but if not after shooting it several hundred shots at ElmHall this passed weekend I can assure you if I ant it ant the bows fault. :)
