My other offering, it has a slight reflex, but is also a little overbuilt. about 66" long.  Tips are antler carved to look like rattles.

I think its up to your judgement Tradcraftsman. You said its underweight for your person, do you think your person would be ok with an underweight bow? If so id say send it! its a really nice looking bow!
Don't practice until you get it right. Practice until you can't get it wrong.

I don't know, I can't say to much without giving away my recipient, but the min requested was 45#.  I'll think I'll sent it unless someone thinks it is a bad idea.

My favourite bow is 10lb under my "proper" shooting weight and 15 under my max draw weight but its so nice to have a bow to use on the range that I can shoot all day. I say send it.

It wouldn't bother me to get an underweight bow.

I'd say you put the effort in and it's a trade. If you feel comfortable with the quality of the build....send it. If I were the recipient it wouldn't bother me to get lower draw weight bow.

So I printed my shipping label and scheduled a pickup tomorrow. Heading east (but then again everything is east from here, almost). Hope it arrives safe and my recipient likes it.

Got a few pics of my trade bow before I wrap it up for shipping. I hope my recipient likes it. I've seen some very nice bows so far. Excellent work guys.

One more. It's a fumed Osage bow with asiatic water buffalo and yellow heart tip overlays & yellow heart glued up handle with lambskin wrap and kangaroo lace.
