Double check my tiller please
« on: April 29, 2020, 02:43:13 pm »
56" NTN. Oak goal 30@ 26.  Currently 30@ 22. Left side is bottom
 Left looks a bit stiff outer 1/3?

That's a long draw for such a short bow. Will you post an unbraced pic?

Thanks Pat. This was my screw up bow. I originally thought it would work for my daughter but she draws 26" now.... 24 last I checked and 24 is what I intended.  I may just leave it 30@24 and find a youth in the neighborhood who needs it. May gift to my sisters BF. Hes only like 5"5"  I'm sure he draws 24ish. May be good to get him into the sport. Here'sbracesd at 5 1/2" if I recall.

Looks over braced? What brace height in that pic?

May be because its so short.

From back of handle about 5 1/4-5 1/2.  Curious now though. How do you properly determine a brace height?

Thanks George, I will hit the right/top fade a little more.   Been fighting the fades on this bow (I don't quite have a good eye for them yet being my 2nd board bow) and left limb has been stiff.  I put a level on top of the bow when I was exercising the limbs and working the fades today.  I could see a bit of difference in the gap created and location of bend when comparing the fades.   Any other tips to get a little better at tapering and evaluating fades?
