I just picked up my JD Berry Taipan. It's 64" long, 46# at 28", black glass on the back and white on the belly. I'm not sure of the wood used, but it looks awesome. These pics don't do it justice. James is an artist, as many of you already know.

I only shot it a couple times, and I still need to get the right arrow dialed in. It draws smooth, has no hand shock, and really zips an arrow. Thank you James for building me such a nice longbow!

Gorgeous bow! James is an incredible bowyer with awesome craftsmanship in every bow he builds. I just talked with him yesterday, and he mentioned he had just sent this bow to you. I am on his list, and can't wait to be up next in the queue.
