Looks great Eric! What is the overall length of the tool? Does it matter what length it is?

One more question Eric. How do you look at what's happening near your fades? These tools like yours and Dean's walkie talkie don't work well when they run up on the fade area. Do you put a ruler on top of the bow to see if the near-fade areas are moving?

Nate, it does matter how long the tool is. The longer it is, the more of a gap you see. With a shorter tool though, you are averaging less of a stretch of limb. For instance, I sometimes use a credit card and it can be a challenge to see the small amount of gap under it when the bow is only pulled to 4-6" of bend. But you can see smaller areas where there are flat spots.

By the way, I was in Excelsior Springs last week. I was visiting my mom in Richmond and we went there to eat at the barbeque place in the old train station. I got the piggyback plate and ate off of it for about three meals.

Eric, has anyone given any feed back using it with flat bellied bows? I was thinking this might be something I could use...

Pappy was going to give it a try but I haven't heard what his results were. I used it on an almost flat belly bow the other day and it worked just fine.
