Hello friends.
It a bit funny but I had a wierd dream. I picked up my bow to shoot and it delaminated and fell apart in my hands! Good thing I woke up. [Roll Eyes]
That made think about proper bow handeling and storage.
So how do you guys do it? How do you take care of your bows so they stay for life? What are the Do's and Don'ts?


And one more thing...
I want to add a palm swell on the left side of my grip. I think it'll make it more comfortable.
Any suggestions?


Thanks in advance
Dor

One rule that I have always heard is not to stand your bow upright in a corner for any extended period of time. It will warp your lower limb.

Never leave bow strung in very hot conditions like a car sitting in the sun.
