Nope. Lol
Guess I should zoom in a little more on the ol phone. Thought the grip and thumb were awood.

Hey Kenny I like to taper the belly side fairly narrow. It gives the meat of the hand a place to go improving the palm swell. I don't really round it to give the flat spot you mentioned. When the bow is drawn it sets right in the hand. The bows are 1.4375 wide for reference. Not the best pics but thought I'd share.

Thanks Mike! I usually do pretty similar to yours(not that good) but the ILF riser feels so good in hand I'm trying to copy it somewhat. Got to get my brother to shoot it and see what he thinks.

Still much wood removal to go.....

Stay sharp, Kenny.

Brother has both bows this weekend, he is in love with them!

He said no difference in shootability in the pair, so they will get rounded over a bit more, but still leave the flattish spot on belly of grip. Hard to explain, but I think I can get it done.....

Also will narrow riser up below grip, kind of like Mike's bow in pic above.

Stay sharp, Kenny.

If you look at Mike's, it appears from this angle to be kind of flat below center of grip, that is what I'm shooting for, told bro I'm in no hurry. You can always take more off, but you can't put it back on....

Stay sharp, Kenny.

Kenny, could you use the scrap from the sight window cutout to build up the left side of the grip? It looks like the trim line could match up OK.

Looks like it's bending good kenny.
Bet it's pretty quick with that backset handle.

Thanks guys!

Brad, its quick enough, but it doesn't match the pro mod.

On the other hand, I shoot it much better!! Well mannered, which kind of surprised me with the limbs set forward....

Stay sharp, Kenny.
