David Knight's Bow is May Laminate Bow of the Month
« on: June 06, 2009, 10:23:32 am »
Congratulations to David Knight of Hickory, North Carolina
His Reflex Deflex Bamboo backed Ipe is Laminate Bow of the Month for May

http://www.primitivearcher.com/smf/index.php/topic,13223.0.html
From David:Here is a Reflex Deflex Bamboo backed Ipe bow I finished up a little while ago.. It is 60" NTN 38# at 28" the handle is Hickory and osage with a osage power lam.. Limb tip over lays are osage and kingswood.. At this draw weight it is a very pleasant bow to shoot and suprizingly quick At 172fps at 10gr per pound.. It is one of the High reflex deflex. This design in the 55# range performs a little better than it does at the lower weights but it does well all around so you can expect to get numbers close or a bit better than these.
From PA Forum Participants:"Wow, another super nice bow! 172fps out of a 38# bow... that's amazing... super efficient. Nice work, as usual."- adb
"Beautiful bow,as we have come to expect from you.  love the curves and the color differences are great. " -Pappy
"Another nice one David!  That's one of your high r/d bows isn't it?  I haven't started on the one I got from you yet, but hope I can get it to perform that well.  Nice job!" -brownhillboy
"Another Beauty.  172FPS out of a 38# bow .  Who needs f-glass.   The bow looks great as do the wood combinations.  I can't wait to get mine shooting.  Really nice work." -ricktrojanowski

I think I'm going to have to try one of David's excellent looking R/D glue ups. Super bow, as usual. Congrats!
