Don't pass on a broken bow. Lol that's why you can't ship in anything other then a pvc tube.

Sucks thought. Bow looked beautiful

I'm sorry to see that it didn't make it to you safely. I sent you a PM. I want to make sure you get a good bow.
Did it break at the stringing groove on the upper nock? I hate to see it break, I really liked that bow and how it shot. And the persimmon made a pretty wood once polished up.

I have a bow that I built to test out a form and did not intend to send for the swap, but since I can't get ahold of anyone I thought I'd send it out anyway. I need to make sure my recipient will be happy with it. It is about 5# less than their lower weight limit, but it is a very nice shooting bow. It's a 68" Hill style with almost 1" of backset built in.

Apparently I can't share photos through Photobucket, so go to this link for pictures. It should work.

Please also comment if this would be an acceptable bow if it's 5# lighter than you're wanting.

5# wouldn't bother me in the least. I say send it. The way I see it, if I can shoot it, I'll play with it. If it's too heavy, I'll build up to it. In not drae weight particular.

5 lbs wouldn't be a deal breaker for me. As long as it's at least 45# min. That way I can legally kill a critter with it [Wink]
