Right there with you guys. But there's plenty of projects to keep distracted with.

I was finally able to put the finishing touches on this year's bow, . It goes out in the mail tomorrow.

This is my first attempt with Igmur, hopefully it works.

The broadhead used, regardless of how sharp, is nowhere as important as being able to place it in the correct spot.

I just got a white tube brought to the door a few minutes ago. Thanks a bunch Walt! I couldn't wait and already flung a dozen or so areows through it. It feels good and flings an arrow well. I can tell that I'm going to have to steal your handle design, it fits my hand PERFECTLY! I shoot an almost pure instinctive and snap shoot style, and I had no problems grouping it in a grapefruit at about 15 yards and on my Tshirt target at about 25. Great amount of character too, enough to make it unique without going over board. And not to worry with it, I have several years of playing with and building self bows under my belt, so it'll be treated right and shot plenty.

Thank you,
Kyle

That's probably a good idea.

I had to contact my recipient, received a tracking notice that the bow I shipped could not be delivered and was being returned to sender. When I finally got ahold of him it was too late, the last update from the postal service stated it was back in New York. Will have to re-ship I guess.

Hi all;


i have mailed to Kelly long ago but i did not get any response since then so i decided to write here too.

this is the mail that i have send:
-----------
i am really sorry to say this but the bow i am making for my recipient is giving me a real trouble. it seems like one limp is powerful than other although i made those limbs lams actually the same. (maybe the wood?)

i know it is a late notice but if my recipient allow me some more time would be great. if not, then if my bowyer did not send it yet you can forward his bow to my recipient.

if he already send, i do not know since sending his bow to my recipient will not be fair play.

you know, i have moved a capital city and living in apartment now. so i do not have much capability to create a proper workshop (well still working on it) plus last 2-3 weeks i was very busy with my health situation (keep back and forth to hospital) so i can not pour myself in to bow making.

if we can find a solution to this would be very nice.

waiting to hear from you mate.
-----------


basically, i am working on new limbs and and handle. here in Turkey, there is a long religious holiday and i had to take my family to somewhere to get relaxed. after that probably i will be re-construct the bow and see how it goes.

people in here...

if you think this (or any solution above) is not fair enough, please let me know.

note to my bowyer: if you did not send the bow yet, please keep it in your premises. worst case scenario will be sending the bow to my recipient.

sorry for troubling mates. i hope you can forgive me.

best and keep bowing [Big Grin]

these are not the droids you are looking for.
