Just wanted to tell yall about my new Omega Longbow. Its 66" and 40@28 and shoots 29" 2018's or Heritage 150's or GT5575's with authority !! I have never had a longbow that liked such a stiff arrow for the draw weight as this one does. The bowyer has one that is 62# and says his likes 2317's. I was like holy cats. Anyways, here's a pic.

thx guys. I like a thicker string also but he said he makes em small for the added speed. I might make a flemish twist for it tonight. My Fox longbow, I had to use a shaft way weaker than I thought to get it right. This one I had to go way stiffer. lol Guess every bow is a test.

At 66 inches, she ought to draw as smooth as butter at your draw length.

Im sure he'd do it but his prices are so unbelievably low you might as well just get a finished bow.
