Really starting to like those r/d bows...and can't help being reminded of the ancient Egyptian bows.  I admire your skill.... ;D

   Saw this bow yesterday and really liked it .  Came back and looked at it again and liked it even more.  I'm going to try and not look at tomorrow; i may do something I'll regret.  Its appeal is contagious.  That's what you should name it. "CONTAGIOUS'

Man, that bow is beautiful. I really like the fine tipwork and the graceful lines. It's good to see your work again.

Thanks, I truly appreciate the comments. I was shooting her today, need to chrono it, still feels pretty darn fast. What would a respectable speed be for a profile like this? Not for sure what my arrows weigh.

I just noticed your only drawing it to 25" the short power stroke will kill you on speed, but with arrows 10 grains per pound I would expect it  to be somewhere in the high 150's to low 160's. Better than that with a longer draw.

Thanks Ryano, thats what I thought about my short draw. I was just curious, as long as it performs in the woods I'll be happy. Hopefully this coming weekend I'll find out, bow season opens back up here in Illinois.
