Ok, she's finished. Only needs beauty clinics now. I'm really happy and I'm still in love with that design. Love the early draw weight and how it shoots  (-S Put a 100 arrows through today. 9" reflex after unbracing. 11" 1h30min later again.
Thanks for sharing all that knowledge ED and everybody else!

there was a little sun today and I couldn't wait again  ;D the other bow is 100 gramms lighter and of course faster. but im fine with this:
10gpp 184fps
9gpp 190fps
8,3gpp 198fps
its not an overbow. seems like I have to repair the other one  ;D
(its warm and humid here - maybe in dryer climate and a little more curing there will be a improvement)

Not bad numbers :)
Have you been shooting it? How is it holding up?

yeah, put some 200 arrows through. nicely holds 12" of reflex. now waiting for the pitch sinew protection to dry out...takes longer than the sinew itself 😀 removed another 40 gramms of mass,...20gramms from the levers...curious about difference in speed after that. will post pics of finished bow  (-S
