Beauty bow, tiller is very nice. Sturgeon has to be the coolest backing out there

Very nice stick! I love all of the contrast. But what got me the most was wondering you said it had a very smooth draw! Do you have the stats for it?

lebhuntfish, The bows length is 64" and is 50#@28". The limbs are 1 3/4" at fades and 1 1/2" mid limb. at the last 7" of lf limb they taper to 1". I left the deflex In the limbs and then flipped the tips which both also help with a smoother draw and not losing speed.
