SELFBOW, that Echo is anything but plain. One of the nicest longbows I've ever seen. Cool story, too. [thumbsup]

I have not hunted this one yet but it is a sweet shooting bow and likes Snag's 65/70 Surewoods. Bought it from a friend I originally met st Stickflingers. A Rampart 3 piece longbow 54#, 54@28".  -

My best shooting is with my Old Hatfield. I ordered this new from a local sporting goods store years ago.

Thanks, Damon, and Dennis. Not many people can say their bed was made into a bow.

Heres my two favorites. First up is my first custom bow. It's an RD longbow from Flatwoods Custom Bows. Walnut limbs with bamboo cores. Jatoba riser with walnut/bamboo accents. 64" and 47@28".

The other is one I recently traded for. It's a Hoots custom 'Lil Hoot recurve. Not sure the woods exactly, but it looks like red elm outer lams and bamboo cores under clear glass for the limbs and maybe cocobolo or something along those lines for the riser. It's 56" and 42@28". I got it for my wife to shoot since none of my bows really fit her, but after shooting it myself, I'm planning on getting some use out of it as well. It's a great shooter, and pound for pound it's the fastest bow I have. Easily as fast if not a little faster than the one listed above shooting the same arrows.

I shot and hunted with numerous bows over the years but always seem to come back to my Martin Hunter.
