The Wallace's I have are so beautiful to start with. I had Wes build them to my spec's and his eye for the wood I wanted. Each bow he surpassed my expectations. I've shot a ton of bows in my short traditional career, His are amoung the top 5% in my opinion. He doesn't boast about anything, very humble. I have shot a couple of Mentors I would'nt care to own by the way the felt when I shot them. Don't know if it was how they were set up or somehow a character of the bow itself. Mine are very fast and stable, very quiet, smooth and solid, not much for vibration that I notice. Empecable craftsmanship. The Macasser Ebony riser with Mrytlewood veneers and bamboo cores draws like butter and shoots like a rocket, very confidence inspiring. The others I have are Cocobolo/Bacote with split veneers and boo cores too. A little less mass weight perceptibly, but shoot as well. The last one I bought was his new B model riser. 15" instead of 19". Makes my 60" limbs to total a 56" bow. This little gem spits an arrow like no bodies buisness! I have slightly less than a 28" draw. If I overdraw just a bit, I can feel it starting to stack. It is under my normal draw length so no bother. I had 3 Habu's that I absolutely loved!! They were fantastic, Recurve, Hybrid and longbow all in the same woods and weight, different lengths. Nice collection but I wanted to concentrate on one bowyer to help my shooting. It has helped a great deal, I'm shooting better than ever not having to adjust so much from different makers and styles of bow. When I cracked and twisted a limb from not paying attention, Wes said let me look at them, sent them back 2 weeks later straightened, fixed and charged me 40.00! He knew I would have layed out another 450.00 in a heart beat. Integrity! He is a great guy, and has won my support. I think there are a lot of good bowyers, fewer great ones. Does'nt mean I can't appreciate the works of others and shoot Wallace's. Wes would be the first to acknoweldge the other world class bowyers.

I have a Mentor that I purchased used about 6-7 years ago. 58# @ 28". It is my favorite bow, period. Very smooth draw, no shock, and boy, has it taken its' licks over the years. Still real pretty to look. High praise for it.

I had a green Stealth made in 94. It was a really smooth, quiet bow that was a pleasure to shoot and a great looking bow. Got caught up in the speed thing and traded it for a Palmer. That bows gone too and dont miss it. I sure would like to get another bow from Wes and may order one if I ever get back to work. Just a great shooting, well made bow.

I have a Stealth takedown that I had made in '98, and 9 Royal takedowns that I have had made since then...you might get the impression that I like Wes and his work! They shoot great for me, and I can (and try to) shoot them everyday with no elbow pain that I have experienced from shooting other bows. Wes is a great guy to do business with, and he makes a beautiful looking/great shooting bow. Feel free to PM with any questions.

Quick and forgiving bows. Just make sure to get the grip sized for your hand.

The wife and I own 4 royals, and have two more coming in the next two months. He is the only bowyer we use. I have visited his shop and chatted with him at shoots. Wes is a gentlemen, very humble, a hoot to swap hunting stories with, and a master bowyer. His bows are top of the line masterpieces. When you compare his prices they are well below what you would pay to get an equivalent bow from a lot of other bowyers.
