OH yeah, it shoots even better than my old Whip! With just a bit of moleskin it is a very quiet, very fast, bow. I dropped 6 lbs, and it handles the exact same arrows I was shooting from my Whip.

Yeah. It was awesome to see the reaction of the guy at the archery shop when he helped me get an official measurement. I needed to know just how long my draw was so I could tell Dan what length to make the bow.
That's very very beautiful, congrats! Ain't new Toelke bows the Best! Malachi, I see your last whip was a 62"? Dan just made me a 62" Whip with a smaller 60" riser for a 30" draw. Did he end up going with a smaller riser than that on your old 62"?

New Toelke bows are an absolute treat!
As for my Whip, it was made back in the pre Whip HS days. Dan reworked his limb design a few years ago, and it added some speed. It also made for bows that stack a little sooner at a given length.
That said, I over worked the poor limbs on my old bow, hence the retired status. It was getting white delamination spots on the limbs. I believe Dan said 31.5ish inches was what my old Whip was designed to handle. All that to say, I don't think he had a smaller riser in my bow. It was just a bow he had in inventory when we visited his shop, actually!
