Hello all, First I fully understand that when it comes to recurve bows, it's "all been done", "nothing is new" etc. But after getting input a few months back from the good folks here in tradgang.com, I decided recurve bows in lengths from 54" - 62" are fairly common, so I designed at 50" and a 64". Both are total overall lengths measured along the curve from tip to tip. Here's a look at them so you can get an idea. The 50" is called the "Machete", since it's a good short bow to take into the brush, and the 64" I'll call the "Big Dog" since it's long and big, obviously. These two will be getting added soon to my website and will be available then.

The Machete is $375 plus $15 shipping

The Big Dog is $450 plus $20 for shipping.

The one on the left is the 50" Machete, the one on the right is the 64" Big Dog

The Proto Types are as follows, the Machete turned out 38# @ 28", Walnut, black glass hard maple lams (It can be drawn to 28")
Here's how it draws:

24# @ 22"
26# @ 23"
28# @ 24"
30# @ 25"
32# @ 26"
35# @ 27"
38# @ 28"

The Big Dog finished up 31# @ 28". Zebra wood, and Walnut, green glass and hickory lams.
and here's how it draws:

25# @ 25"
27# @ 26"
29# @ 27"
31# @ 28"
33# @ 29"
35# @ 30"
37# @ 31"
40# @ 32" (39.7# actually)

I Look forward to Trying the 64" at a hunting weight of around 45# - 50# and see how it shoots. That'll be coming soon, after the holidays.

The 64 looks like it would be a joy to shoot. They both look great.

That 50” model looks like the ticket for change confined spaces. My 65” longbow is a bit big to use from my canoe and something like that might just be the ticket!

I have the Machete up on the sponsor's classified, but the 64" big dog I'm giving to my oldest grand kid.

I couldn't quit shooting the 64", even though it's such light weight, and my lightest arrows are spine'd 45# - 50# it was still shooting them pretty good.

Mike, those are beautiful. Do you have any ballpark price ranges in mind yet? I am drooling over the green glass, are you planning on offering that option in all the recurve models or just the Big Dog?
Outstanding work, sir!
Are you saying the Machete stacks at DL over 28"? My DL is 29-29.5 and I prefer a hunting weight of 45#?

Kirk, the machete won't work for you and your 29" + draw. Unless you can short-draw it consistently. (Which I don't recommend)

I offer black, green or brown fiberglass on any bow I build, I'll also use clear for an additional $50.

The Machete is $375 plus $15 shipping

The Big Dog is $450 plus $20 for shipping.

I'll add the prices to the first post.

Outstanding! I was thinking more in line with the Big Dog anyway, already have a K-Mag and it's short enough. One last question; can you apply an epoxy finish like Thunderbird? [archer]
