Could someone explain what the HS and SS mean and the difference between the HS and SS Toelke bows? Thanks. JM

The HS "High Speed" is the designator assigned to a Whip Longbow. The "SS" is short for Super Static which is a 64" semi static limb design Recurve

Beautifully as usual from Dan! I'm envious!

Various bows, but if you see me shooting, it's probably a Toelke in my hand!

What arrows are you shooting out of that. I can only think of three that would be long enough.

As for my Whip, it was made back in the pre Whip HS days. Dan reworked his limb design a few years ago, and it added some speed. It also made for bows that stack a little sooner at a given length.

That said, I over worked the poor limbs on my old bow, hence the retired status. It was getting white delamination spots on the limbs. I believe Dan said 31.5ish inches was what my old Whip was designed to handle. All that to say, I don't think he had a smaller riser in my bow. It was just a bow he had in inventory when we visited his shop, actually! [/QB]

Man, if that was just a 62" pre-HS design drawn to 33", you sure got the max out of that tiny bow!

BTW, love that coffee table! What kind of wood is that? Custom made?

That bow is a beaut! The myrtle veneers with the black micarta riser and walnut accents is a stunning combo.

One question: is the riser cut past center?

Thanks! It's Walnut that my great grandfather cut down and milled himself back in the 70's. I made the table myself!

I don't believe so. Dan generally cuts 1/8" shy of center.

That arrow was one of the arrows I was thinking of. How much weight do you have up front.?

That is a sweet looking bow! I need to get my hand on one of those. With an almost 32@ draw myself those 64” recurves are a dream to shoot [thumbsup]
