Very beautiful bows guys! Here are a few photos of the Pika I recently received from Dan; a Texas Ebony riser, along with Myrtle veneers. I'm also shooting Dan's string at the moment. However, I like making my own strings, and will probably try a 10 strand D10 here soon. I'll let you know how that goes. Like Fred, I'm shooting GT 500s, but with 200 grain Eclipse up front. Be sure to let us see that bow once it's in hand.

Best regards, Chase

Chase,

Nice-looking bow. I find that Dan does really good work. I think he's a perfectionist ! But doesn't know it !!! I told him to put beaver tail on mine. I know what the risers going to be, I just told him to put some nice woods to accent it. I think he's putting juniper Venere on the limbs. I will probably use Axis N-Fused Carbon 500s. But there's a possibility it may be too stiff, for this bow. Dan shooting for
38#@ 29". It's going to be my high-power tall leged critter getter. I like things close, 5 to 12 or 15 yards at the most. Keeping it as challenging as it could get on the ground. I use Zwickey 2 blade 135 gr. Dan is setting that up for three under.

And Of course I will put photos on once I get the bow.

I got a used Pika back in August. It's a 56" 54@28 take down, and I draw 28. The string is one that Dan makes. Like said before, the take down system adds some weight that to me helps stabilize the bow. I absolutely love this bow. I have never shot a bow so consistently good. My first shot has much improved over any other bow I have owned. I wasn't able to shoot much this fall during the season, so I didn't take it out much. I'm hoping this spring is different. I'm shooting 29 1/4 inch Heritage 250's with a 200 gr tip. I think the overall weight is around 550. I shoot 3 under, but I'm not sure what the bow is tillered to. I think the woods are black and white ebony, but I could be wrong.

Snake, a B&W ebony Pika! You lucky dog! I think Dan quit working with it because it's a pain. Don't let that one go!

I did not know either one of those things. It is a split finger tiller, but shoots great 3 under.

The B&W ebony is a cool fact too. Although I didn’t see ever getting rid of this bow [thumbsup] [goldtooth]

Disappointing news !!! You won't have the only one with mango.

I just talked Dan again, It's going to be Micarta riser, Mango limb veneers , but I don't think there will be twins !

The word Bocote did not come up, so won't be identical Twins !

But if they are ! It's going to cost us a lot of money ! Twins do things together !!! [goldtooth]

Dan sure is a great person to work with, he gets your bow exactly how you want.

For anyone who knows...what does the -7 mean in Dan's spec's

My Whip HS is an Apache -7. I'm thinking this is in reference to the riser length from Fade to Fade.

Anybody know for sure and what length that would be if it is concerning the riser?

I was wondering if anyone had pics of a Pika with black glass limbs instead of those beautiful wood veneers? If I ever get a light poundage bow to help with a bad shoulder, I would consider going that direction to save $100 on the pricing...
