  That's exactly what my ideal bow looks like, weight length, profile everything. Good job.

Very nice, especially for a "simple" bow.

Classic pearl drums brace, looks like another smooth shooter
Yea but I ain't say  n a thing until I see that PD FD   >:D

I'm the same way big guy, just wood shaped like a bow until its bent like a bow. Its just a matter of getting a warm body around to snap a few pics. Hopefully tonite or tomorrow somebody will drift in.

Know what you mean Chris, without Kim I wouldn't be able to take FD's either.  Kim surprised me when she said " it's his TP is why there's not a full draw pic.  :)  I told her she'd better be good because we'll be at Elm Hall soon, and You might get on her about all the "akerns" that were in KY last fall.  HaHa :)

As great as wives are for taking FD pics, if you guys have smart phones you can do it yourself.  :) Just open the camera app, switch it to "selfie mode," and set the timer. The only trick is getting it to stand up straight.  ;)

I didn't notice the extra bit of reflex in the top until you pointed it out, cant wait to see the fulldraw. Smooth looking bow all around. I too just use the timer on my camera. My cheap tracphone even has a setting where I say cheese and it snaps a picture.

Excellent work all around Chris. Like Clint said, very classy looking.  That should last for years and years

Pretty piece of wood that looks like a bow Pearl. Really though love the profile and weight, should be a good shooter and backup bow. Waiting for the pdfd but I'm sure it's spot on. I'm still hoping to get a chance to sneak out to Elm Hall. It'll be fair week but I'm hoping we will be done with wheat harvest.

Bobert that little bit makes the top limb look more round at brace and draw. And about 1/8" more positive than a "normal" bow would.

Thanks again for the comments fella's. Always good to be judged by your peers. Makes all better at what we love.

Still no FD pic. I finally got my wife home from the hospital late last night, maybe I can con her into a 1 minute photo session tonite :)
