  Outstanding performance!! I knew it had to be much faster than your first report, I bet you are pretty happy with the results, you deserve a lot of credit for a great job!  This is a good example of starting off with enough wood to get the job done right. If you know you have enough wood for a design there is no need for the no set tiller method.

Thanks! I was grinning the whole time! Did get to see 60 on my chrono (european version) a few times. That was a first! Did get some good tips for working on my release as well so I have some work to do!

Wow, what a gorgeous bow and blazingly fast! Great work, I will have to make a laminate bow one day myself (once I master making great self bows).

Cheers,

Phil
