Just above mid limb on the top looks a little stiff for about 8" then a slight bend before the tip.
The upper fade could bend a bit more too.
You're getting close. Have you shot it yet. If not, do so. Put about 10 arrows through her then check full draw again.

The right limb area outside of the fade looks a tad stiff where the flat line is. Where the arrow is looks a little weaker. Then stiff out past that. I would work above and below that arrow, not touching the arrow area at all. Just a few scrape's then sand then exercise.

Do you have a gizmo? They do not lie.

I see it this morning. Yes I have a gizmo, going to modify it today with a better pencil adjustment on there. Some how it went sailing across the shop last night. When things start magically flying around I know its time to stop.

Modified gizmo. Its a prototype, still the exact same thing just a better pencil adjustment. The other was tight but I swear I could feel it move most likely my imagination. If I like it I have an idea for installing a tiny ruler for adjusting in 1/64 increments. Not necessary I know but neither is a 300 blackout for coyote hunting but hey why not!

I put ten arrows through it this morning as Pat recommended then a few dozen more this evening. The windage is good hits pretty much were I'm looking at 12yrds or so. However I do not like the way it shoots. It draws good but it feels clunky on release if that makes sense. Hand shock isn't to bad. I went parallel to midlimb maybe a tad passed. Ill shoot it some more and see. Working on a new one and the taper starts 6 inches out going to see how that shoots and maybe come back to this one and do some modifications. In your guys experience is that normal for this type of bow. Pat I know your build along is similar just curios. Probably the bowyer not sure. Going to break down and buy a long bow so I will have some comparison.
Thanks guys.

Some times I speak to soon. I cranked the brace height up to 7 inches swapped to a heavier arrow seems much better. Cant say she's fantastic but not bad imo. Put at least 200 arrows through it today checked and it was 47.8 pounds at 28 so. The cool part is the set, it had one inch to start now its lil over two much better than the last few wich started flat and ended up well over two inches. On to the next one.
