I weighed options for a year or two before building a dream bow; 2 piece caribow featherhorn, yew core, cocobolo handle, beavertail grip. I love it. Want another but a 2 piece wolverine model.

A decked out blacktail would be somethi g to have some day.

Finally, I’m not a recurve guy, but Danny Rowans Silvertip known as “Love Potion #9” is bar none the sexiest bow I have ever seen!

I'm pretty content with the bows I have now, both current and vintage, but two that I haven't gotten my mitts on and would like to are Centaur and Saluki.

I've been through more bows than I would ever want to admit to. I've pretty much settled on the best of the best for me and haven't bought anything new in quite awhile now. Still have way more than I need.

But I do find myself lusting over a Blacktail T/D longbow since shooting my buddies a couple of months ago. That could prove to be a very expensive test drive.

For me it's my Centaur. Had it made two years ago, is everything I want and fits me like a glove. Impeccable workmanship, it is the bow that will never leave me.
I will say that I went through a lot of bows to get to this point, both long bows and recurves, and from a lot of great bowlers.

I love my Bodnik Slick Stick. Shoot it better than any bow I have ever had. For several reasons it will always be my favorite. That said If money was no object I would love to own an Caribow Slynx. There are just so many Great Bows Being made right now. Hell, for a while now. Alot of Gifted people out there. Our gain!

That's what I am talking about. I am pretty content with what I own; 3 Bears, a Martin and a Great Plains, special only to me.

My favorite bow is the Sarrels Blueridge long riser takedown longbow. I own 4 of them. I quit looking around for different bows after I got my first one. The last 2 new bows I have bought have been Blueridges! I don’t really have a dream bow, as I already own it!!!

I own 5 bows right now. If I could take features of each of them in a single bow, that'd be my dream. Of course, if I DID that, it might turn out to be a dog!
