Jesse Smith is Winner for February Laminate Bow of the Month
« on: March 05, 2009, 12:38:59 pm »
Congratulations to Jesse Smith of Abrams, Wisconsin
His "Hers" from the His and Hers Set of Bamboo backed Ipe
is Laminate Bow of the Month for February
Jesse battled with himself on this one. His "His" member of the set almost won. ;)
My wife asked me to make her a pink bow that no guy would want to shoot  We settled on a pink fade in the bamboo like a
sunset so hers is named "sunset'. Its boo backed ipe with an ipe power lam and a stripe of maple in the handle. Elk antler ovelays.
Hers is les than 3/4" at the widest and pulls an even 40#@26"  64" ntn. by far the thinnest bow ive made.  The next bow is mine
its a r/d tri lam boo back, maple core, and ipe belly. also with elk overlays. It is real sweet and fast. I was actualy trying for a bit
more poundage but the early weight fooled me and it gains very gradual in the draw. it pulls a hair over 50# @ 27" 66" ntn 1 1/8
at fades tapering to a little under 3/8" tips. Thanks for looking  - Jesse
These folks know a well-made bow when they see one.

"Beautiful looking bows, Jesse. The contrast between the wood is striking. The deep cut in shelves are so smooth and rounded
they look like they are molded. Sweet!" -mullet
"That is a priceless set of bows.  Good work." - Justin

Congratulations Jesse. As I said, both bows are fantastic.
I voted for "HIS", but "HER" is a  wonderfull eye-catcher as well.

Congratulations Angie and Jesse. And to think, this bunch of masculine, testosterone driven guys voted for a pink girls bow! ::)
   Jesse, you build a beautiful bow and Angie dissevers only the best!

Say, what is wrong with pink? It's just red with some white mixed in. Beautiful bow. Will it shoot better now that it has won? :)

Thanks again guys. I hope you know what you voted for. She already has a gaudy leopard print strike plate on it and plans to put some white fur above and below the handle.  :-*  :-* :D
