It is the very first Holm-Made River Runner. Chad's personal bow he loaned me so I could try one out(he'd never hunted this one for shame!). 60" 52@28 the newer ones have a slightly shorter riser and they will be coming with D-97 strings instead of FF+ soon(I swapped his string for mine and the bow behaved mucho nice). Took a little fiddling to get her quiet to my liking and still in the hand at my 30" draw. Surprisingly fast for this style bow and I mean FAST! For starting out at $450 with a 1 year warranty these bows are a steal that folks are missing out on. He's going to be working on a 62" one at my prodding. I'll have one of his longbows in a week or so to run through the ringer. Didn't see any deer today but had a nice squirrel stew for supper. Simmons sharks do nasty things to squirrels so I opted to leave pics of those out.

Thanks for the kind words guys. I really do love building bows and like to see people enjoying the bows just as much.
Your right Herk, I am going to be around for a long time. I love the work and I have a real job that I enjoy that allows me to spend a lot of time building bows without being totally dependant on it. It makes for a nice situation for me and also for the customers. Take care, Chad
I got to meet Chad last summer. His bows look good in pictures, but look alot better when you can see them in person. I also think they shoot better than they look. I shot at least 8 of his bows, and had a hard time decideing wich one i liked best. I ended up with one of his Osprey longbows. It is the smoothest bow i have ever shot.

I was pretty proud of my telescopic shipping boxes until today. I mailed a bow USPS to Alabama Friday. It showed up with 8" of limb sticking out of the side of the box. The postal lady told the customer that she thought I intentionally shipped the bow that way. WHATTHEHECK!! I will have to beef up the boxes I guess. I can't find carpet tubes big enough in diameter for my R/D bows. The customer refused to take the box so it's coming back to me for inspection. Good thing I had the bow insured. Thanks again for the nice comments and a chance to vent. Chad
