Thank you, my friends. :) I noticed that on full draw pic it looks different than when I finished tillering, like upper limb is much stiffer than it realy is. My friend made photo by hand held camera, seems inclined angle. Just after tillering it looked like this: (photo made on static place, 90 degree angle to bow). This could be reminder to all of us to check angles of cameras during tillering or during photo session. Small inclining toward us or opposite could make tiller look slightly different.

Rust on my fingers must be moved. Life is short, we should make as much bows as we can. 😌💪🏾
