Very nice looking bow :) Well done.
The only thing I can see is your levers could lose some weight. These bows can shoot low 180's if you want something to aim for! :)

Yes.  Your are right Iíve been thinking the same thing actually about how much more I could shave off.  Iíve heard some folks refer to the tips as levers or needles.  I guess thatís a clue as to making them as thin as possible.  My next bunch will be focussing in more speed and I think itís going to come down to the tips.  Thanks

Welcome!
This is a really nice bow, but maybe you wouls consider reducing wight of the levers a bit.

Thanks medicinewheel!  Ya for sure now that I know that the bake didnít make the hickory too brittle I will I think.  Experimenting until failure!  😎.

Looks a bit like an Elven bow from Lord of the Rings. Fine craftsmanship and excellent design.
