Reverse Riser Bow is March Backed Bow of the Month

http://www.primitivearcher.com/smf/index.php/topic,1925.0.html
This in an incredible bow, folks!:
Here is a new bow I just made. It was a experimental design, with a reverse riser. It has a Raw bamboo back, osage core, and raw bamboo belly with black walnut accent stripes in the riser and walnut/osage tip over lays. It is 62" ntn and pulls 53#@28". I think it turned out pretty good. It draws to 28" very smooth, and shoots a arrow with authority. I really like the way this bow draws and shoots. it is very smooth and can easily be drawn to 29" with no stacking at all in a 62" bow. I am planning on building a recurve using this riser design when I get the time. using bamboo on the belly makes for a much lighter limb with less mass. I do temper the bamboo on the belly witch greatly inceases the compression. This combo makes for a very durable limb that holds the tiller very well. Most of the tiller is made into the bow with the taper in the lams. and in the limb design. I do the final tiller by removing matrial from the sides of the limbs.

These comments are those who ought to know a really interesting, skillfully-made bow:
"looks like one FAST bow to me!" -frank
"That's a fine looking bow and a sweet shooter as well, I think"  -Andrew S
"Nice bow by the way. Don't see many like that." - Minuteman
"Sweet bow! Tiller looks awesome, I just can't figure out how you fellas tiller a bow with a raw boo belly, all the nodes look intact." -Jbell
"Wow, that is really something different. The tiller looks perfect. A real head-turner! " -Gordon

It doesn't appear to be a bit less pretty (or deserving) than it was when I first eyeballed it, Pat. "Staying Power!"

Thank for all the compliment and for the votes it means a lot coming from other guys that are all into bow building and know what they are looking at. I also want to thank my brother Ryan for helping me with the pictures.  Thanks Pat
