In the Texas Longbow , you Must shoot a 1pc. Long bow. Wooden arrows, 50 targets. Your score is flighted and you shoot again, on Sun. With people who are close to your score. 2 score keepers , 2 pullers. This tournament is the reason I'm looking for a different 1pc. The A@H is too twitchy for 4-5 sec hold. Will be put up for sale after something else is acquired. So.. I'm leaving for Vanderpool Texas in just a few min. To see what manner of bows for sale down there. And to shoot of course. Some good bowyers will be there, Foley, Palmer, Sarrels etc. Plus a lot of used bow sellers. Try some different bows, leave my options open. [archer]

By your signature, it appears you are kinda partial to 3pc bows, like me. I gave up shooting the open class at the longbow shoot (mostly because I hate those darn wood arrows) and just shoot selfbow or composite now (I have bamboo arrows for those bows. Bamboo is grass and not wood [Wink] [Wink] [Wink] ).

I don't think either will be able to stand next to your Morrison Shawnee, if it has the foam carbon limbs, but either bow will make you happy.

  • Gordy Morey 2pc. 68" R/D 55# @ 28"

  • Bear Tamerlane 66" 30# @ 28" (1966)- for my better half

Leon Stewart longbows rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have not shot his recurves yet, but I am betting they are incredible as well.
Recently got my hands on an r/d longbow of his and it is a dream to shoot! 65" long and 61# at my draw length. Can you say fast. [scared] This bow is built like a tank, and I am sure someone will be shooting it long after I am gone! [thumbsup]

Gandgolf if you were a Lefty you could shoot my Whippenstick long bow I got from Ken about 2 weeks ago 65" 51@29.
I have owned/shoot A@H as well as Kens longbow and there were near the same speed through my chrono but the Whippenstick is all wood/glass and quiet as a mouse. And the best thing is Kens bows were half the price with the best finish and attention to deal I have ever seen.
I love my new Whippenstick.

When Savior wants the next hot item I have first dibs on his WS longbow [Razz] LOL!! I honestly don't think that time will come though, Ken's work is incredible to say the least. We're talkin in same league as Centaur finish and shootability wise.

Well, got back from Vanderpool late last night . No one had a 64-66" 1 pc. Didn't see Kirkll. The threat of rain kept a lot of vendors and contestants away. The turnout was good. Just not up to the usual standards. So the chance to tryout one was null and void. I know I'd like one juuust a little heavier than 45#. So .. the search continues. It was Hilarious, watching those supposedly perfectly tuned arrows, corkscrewing and tail wagging thru the air when their fletching was drenched. My carbons flew perfectly, even when they went sailing off into the Rain/mist. My woodies on the other hand.. I knew they were underspined just didn't realize how bad. A little lighter bow would help correct that. Course so would higher spined arrows. [laughing]

Haven't shot the other bows mentioned in the title but the ridiculously fast whippenstick longbow made me sell my ILF recurve limbs of the same weight and never looked back [Smile]

Called Ken- He told me his dilemma. I said , "I was told to call you , because you were loaning out a bow." He said "yes he was, it was his personal 1pc." I said " well what are the spec's on that one?" He told me . And I said " That's fine if you want to sell, I'll Take it !" So we'll see..(I think I shocked him). He's gonna think on it. Sent good pic's. Told me all it's flaws,nicks scratches..etc. Heres the Great part ! A lot of bowyers would say it's the "greatest thing since Sliced bread" Says a lot about the man if he has to think about selling a used/demo bow. So.. we'll see. After reading his webpage, didn't think I'd hear back from him, I really was shocked when he called. Another redeeming quality, in a Bowyer. [shaka] Don't get me wrong, most guys want to ship Nothing but their best work. But if someone understands that it's used. To me , it's not a reflection , on his craft, or workmanship. It's an achievement. If someone still wants his product in less than stellar condition.
