Indeed the Shrew Hill is also my favorite Hill bow to date. It is an incredible feat. Barely 1" wide at the fades, the tips are 3/8"!!! The deep wedge grip is outstanding. I personally spoke to Gregg Coffey about them and it seems they were very labor intensive and difficult to build because of the proportions. Not sure if Ron will have Chuck Deschler try and make them?? If so I hope they are the same specs as the original version. The Coffey made one I had only got sold because it was righty and I'm primary lefty and have an elbow injury in my right arm. We can hope some new Shrew Hills will come. I have my eye out for a lefty.

I know where a blank is just waiting to be made into a bow [Smile] Boo and maple lams. Brown glass. Osage riser. Made like the Hills of old. 68" NtN and the blank right now is 48@28. After shaping of limbs it might drop to the mid 40s.

It's sister bow is a lefty [Wink]

When Mike Ballenger made my bow the first blank missed weight, a tad light, so instead of asking to if I'd take it he made another bow. And there it sits, waiting to be made into a bow. Looking for someone to get the bug and give it a home [Wink]

Went out this morning checking a few spots for deer sign under some white oaks. A squirrel hunt broke out and I arrowed this little gray at about 15 yards.

I think a Super D is as much a "Hill" bow as a backset bow from Howard Hill Archery. I have a bow bolt take down Super D and I wear XL gloves and the grip seems fine to me. I did mention to Dan that I had big hands but I don't know if he changed anything.

Very nice Bud!!! Food for thought. That narrow nice deep grip is the key. Nice narrow limbs. Still not quite as skinny toward the tips as the Shrew but awful close and danged closer than anything else out there...

What would Mike want for the finished product?? [Smile]

Give him a shout. But, I got a PM from someone else on it so you're not the only one eyeing it. Y'all get with Mike [Wink]
