You guys inspired me a few years ago - back to the #1 thread - so I've bought all of mine because of you (you devils, but thank you for the memories someone once sang). Thru them all, I have three HHA and one Jet right now. If y'all put anymore pretty pictures up, I might have to find a way to get another, darnitall ;-) KEEP IT UP!

Many of us have many bows. Howard Hill had a pretty good stash as well, although not anywhere near what some of us have or had. To take a time frame of when Hill was probably still very active, let's say in the mid 50s, how many of the bows that he owned, did he actually use on a regular basis? It seemed in his pre glass years there were two, Gramma and Grandpa.

Two for me Sam. Had a Howard Hill Tembo since 1978 then added a Northern Mist Shelton.two years ago. Well Merry Christmas 🎁 to me a little late. Steve had an orphaned Northern Mist Ramer that will be making its way north tomorrow. 50#@28” 66” black walnut limbs with clear glass and beautiful ‘swirl’maple handle. This is his reverse handle string follow model.

I started shooting R/D when I started making them...otherwise almost exclusively Hill style. I will shoot about anything and really like all styles of bow, but Hill style is my “go to”. Once I figured out shooting Hill style bows I can now shoot anything and almost any grip. I used to think grips were such a big deal but now I believe it’s more about mechanics and the correct “hold” and arm positions. If the tiller is decent and it shoots, I’ll shoot it. I have a lot of bows..and just make another one if there’s something I want. Lol. A buddy will lend me his curve forms if I want a noisy bow.. [Big Grin]

Agreed! I love the quietness of my Hills! If they ever sound noisy I know immediately that my form has slipped!
