I'm hoping to have some new limbs ready for the TBOF Spring Shoot. Im not shoot the Championship ranges but will be on the Fun range a few times.. hoping to glue up another set of limbs this weekend..I have to make or buy a drill jig for the ILF connection. Once holes are drilled I can shape the limbs and add tip overlays then spray finish  -

All I can say is ....WOW...those are awesome looking!
What riser are you using for the build? And what weight do you think they will end up?

I bought a used 15" TT Black Onyx riser. These are prototype limbs and I am thinking somewhere between 35 and 40 lbs. I just glued up another set of limbs using red elm tapers with Figured Sapele veneer on back and curly koa on the belly

I got the Sapele/koa limbs on bow tonight..draw weight will end up 28# @ 28". I am working on the other set now. I assume it will be similar draw weight. These are the first limbs off of the form and draw weight was a guess..at least I didn't get 80#s. I shot a couple of 800 spine arrows right at dark tonight..limbs are pretty good for 28#s. I will add another lamination in the next set and bring #s up to 40-45# @ 28"
