Honestly Pat I couldn't tell which is stronger. I base my opinion on what I was told when I was younger, so its more habit I guess. Never had a problem with any of the three tell ya the truth.
My step father gave me some silicon based stuff that's a sealer and adhesive, comes in a tube like caulk. That crap will stick and bond to any thing, one day I'm going to try it, its also very flexible.

I've used all three over the years and never had a failure.

  For ipe TB original is rated the highest, for most other woods TB3   TB2 is still fine and works great.

  I learned to leave it longer, and in good environment for drying than other glues.  I used to jump the gun a little at 24 hours or less, and it would creep back out of the form more than Urac or epoxy used to.

Well Guys, I took her out after 24 hours. Didn't want to stress it tonight but I done some scraping and rounded the corners good. It only has 5/8 reflex, I put a 1.5 inch block under the tips but forgot to allow for the handle thickness, it kept most of what I put in it. With the backing its 3/4 at the handle, 5/8 mid limb and 1/2 at the tips, she don't bend much at all. I'm happy so far.

Hey Guys, I'm tillering this bow and the Perry reflex I glued in 5/8 is now up to 7/8. I remember reading about that but cant remember where. I understand the reasons for it, is this bad? Does this mean I need to do something different or just keep going as is.

With some woods you will get a little increase in reflex as you thin the belly.

She looks like shell be a good one. It has a swirl, not a knot in the grain about a third from the tip. Doesn't seem to be a problem for now but I'm keeping an eye on it. We will find out.

I'm with Pat!  That increasing reflex is fine if it's not a ridiculous amount, and if you hit the tiller.
