Good choice Dannon. If Kenny doesn't get more people to sign up, there may not be another one next year.

You may have to settle for a little more variance in draw weight than 48-50.

It might help to put more info on about what you like in a bow, I failed there, but I'd just be happy to get one somebody gave their best on so not picky there.

And Dave, I couldn't sell a $10 bill for $5 so you may want to get somebody else to get builders signed up! [laughing]

Stay sharp, Kenny.

Wasn't going to do it, but I'm coming in to support the trade.

I'm going to build an old school Hill style with true back set. It'll be ground up from form to finish.

I will build a few things for myself this year so I'd like a bow built for a grandson who will turn eleven in a couple months. He just passed his hunter safety test today and I have a board bow he can hunt with the rest of this year. Make it a small game bow. He can't hunt big game until he is 12 and may not be ready for a big game bow until he is 15 or so.

I'll play, I'll build a 3 piece glass recurve. I'd prefer not to ship overseas. I'd like a glass bow of some sort that will be comfortable at my draw length in trade between 50 and 60 pounds at 31's. I'm right handed. I'd prefer a even tiller.

Thanks, Travis

Thanks

Dawned on me last night that I never put my info in here.

This dislocated shoulder has made it very apparent that it's never a bad idea to have a lighter bow around. Good for working on form, recovering from injuries, or working with new archers. As such, I'm looking for 35# (30-40#) @ 29", RH, split finger. I'll be building glass, but happy to receive anything.

This comes with the caveat that I'll probably know who my builder is. As for who I get for a bowyer and for a victim, I promise that my name will be in the hat just like everyone else's. I won't try and avoid Sweka on purpose. (But my fingers will still be crossed...)

Count me in. This will be my first year in the swap, and I'm ready for the challenge. I'll be building an all wood bow, probably a tri-lam unless the victim would rather something else.
I'm right handed, split finger, 29.5" draw, and I would rather a heavier bow 60-70 lbs, but if I get someone who's not comfortable with that weight and my draw, anything over 50 lbs I'll be happy with. Build me whatever type of bow you build the best (wood or glass).

I'm in! 28" draw length, 50-60lb weight, right handed glass, one or two piece (probably one piece) I would prefer a glass bow.

monterey - Is your grandson right hand or left hand? Any idea roughly what draw and weight you're thinking for him? I know you said he's 11, but I had an 11 year old daughter who could pull 30 pounds easily and I have a 13 year old neighbor boy who struggles with 18.

I'll have to get back to you on that. They just wheeled him into the OR for an emergency appendectomy. It'll be a couple days before I can get with him for current measurements. He has grown a lot since the last measures.
