About 700 arrows no issues. Pyramid 1.5 wide to 5/16 70 inches t2t hickory backed red oak with a tad of eastern red cedar.It will hit a 6 inch circle out to 20 yards, still tuning. Seems to be holding steady at 44 pounds now. Didn't do a lot on the finish yet if it holds up ill French polish it or something. Probably redo the handle with some built up leather under that cane and a wider shelf. works for now with the way I grip it. Named it H.O.E. Bow
Thanks BMorv and PatB and others who gave me advice!
On to the next one, #55 Cherokee style flat bow. I don't have black locust so its going to be oak.

"It will hit a 6 inch circle out to 20 yards, still tuning." I have been shooting for over 6 years and not that consistent yet........ [Roll Eyes]

Good job on that bow.
