I want to see how many of you guys have a " Pika " from Mr. Dan Toelke.

Photo's Please !

It doesn't matter if it's at 54" or 56" I just want to see the colors and style, and the different woods.

Dan is making me one up now ! And tell me a little bit about your setup for shooting. Maybe what string you have on it, what you use for string silencers. And maybe the arrow wt. Just some of the things that make it work really great.

Thanks

Carl

WoW !!!

All of those are really looking nice. Sharp looking bows. BUT I see the infamous Black circle around mid riser, I was tempted to do that takedown. BUT I didn't. The very first photos was the woods I started to go with. But I wanted a little bit of weight in the riser. So I went with Micarta riser. But Dan said he was going to dress it up.

Thanks for putting photos on here, and the info too.

From what I hear from others they are really nice shooting bows. I had a shoulder problem and I stepped out of it for five years.

I thought I'd try and get a bow that hits the bull's-eye in spite of myself !!! What really sold me on it was no hand shock. But time will tell when it gets here.

Easy shooters. This pic was first day I had my 54", got it tuned, 3 consecutive shots 17 yds 10gpp arrow. I draw 29, the 56 was smoother but the 54 had a little more zip. Great bows. To me the 2pc adds that nice extra heft to really help stabilize these shorties. Your bow will be great even as a 1pc. Enjoy!

That's a pretty nice setup, matching bow and knife ! Did you make the knife yourself Jeffrey ?


That's some very good shooting chuck, I've heard a lot of good things about the bow. I hope that this one can teach me well !
