A little update, it takes almost twice as long to build 2 as one... LOL

These are fresh off the rasp, so don't mind the tool marks....

I like the extra I put on left side of grip, this bow is fairly narrow, 1.450" but not sure what to do with the thumbrest.

I wanted a flatter spot where the palm meets the bow, I have an ILF riser that feels great there. It just looks too fat from the belly side , guess you can't have it all.. [Smile]

Any input welcomed.....

Stay sharp, Kenny.

Gonna have to be honest [scared]
I actually like less material in that area.
And I'm not sure about the grey actionwood. But then again.....I can't think of what I would use instead. Lol.

That's what I like is honest answers!

I don't like the look of the fat grip, but man I like the way it is shootin for me. About to get arrows tuned in and even not having shot much this summer, it is working well for me. Had a bowyer explain the flat spot on the grip, it doesn't torque as easy. Time will tell.

Can you really see the actionwood( in the accent stripe)? That is phenolic on grip and thumbrest....

Thanks Mark!
