Creep back

After unstringing, how mush reflex do you guys loose on your horn bows, and how much comes back over what period of time?
Tread softly and carry a bent stick.

How long is a piece of string??? :) :)
It is very hard to varies with each bow. When just starting out with these bows very few leave them long enough, not to just to dry but also to cure. Adam's book has an excellent section on what happens when you leave them long enough. You see a lot of the moisture ends up in the core...and you don't want it there.
