Some of you asked about the wood here is what Big Jim said about the bow on another site;
"FYI- the limbs are smoked movingui and the riser is extra special. It is cultrada dalbergia or "burmese rosewood". Cocolate in color and very heavily curled like the movingui limbs only tighter curl. I had to set a block aside for my own personal ThunderChild. When I find woods such as that, it is like shooting a nice doe, or catching a big fish. Warm and fuzzy all over.
I have been looking for more cultrada and have only been able to acquire a few blocks. Most supliers say they have never seen any. Others say they will probably never see another.
Wow, it would almost make me sad except that I have gotten used to selling them and sending them away. Would like to do that with one of my sons ocasionally."
I would like to add this as well Big Jim is a Hell'uva nice guy to talk to on the phone and seems like a great guy to deal with all the way around. This might just push me towards a Thunder Child next. LOL..... Anyway I think she sure is a looker and it will be a shooter as well I am sure. Thanks again Big Jim. Tom
The Bearded Giant is a real asset to the trad world. No finer gentleman to deal with.
Congrats on a great bow!

Gorgeous bow and I bet she is cheaper than the lady your parting paths with! I feel for you brother I have been the big D path myself. On the upside I know have a wonderful wife who fishes, camps, and trad hunts with me.
