just beautiful Dave. Nice job. I can testify to how nice this is, having seen it on one of your bows last summer. Thanks.

George, you're gonna need to get that bow of yours done for mojam so I can see it. Of course, if you don't have it done by then we could set down together and do it in about an hour or two.

J.D., you could bet there's only one direction I'd wrap the leather if I were to do that kind of handle, THE RIGHT WAY!!!! [readit] [bigsmyl]

A man's gotta stand by his opinions eh?


By the way, if anyone has any questions about this or thinks I didn't explain somethine, feel free to ask.

I've come to believe that the keys to shooting well for me are good form, trusting the bow to do all the work, and having the confidence in the bow and myself to remain motionless and relaxed at release until the arrow hits the mark.

TTT for huntinut.

Blair, you could do this method on the belly side of your handle to make the humps you talked about.

Hi, Dave: I bet this method of appling leather would work on string knocks too. I think sveral different colors in layers would look great. And I think your work and pictorial is great

Joseph, I've thought about using this for tip overlays but have nevr tried it. I think it would work just fine on a selfbow with a dacron string but I don't know if it would hold up to strings like Fast Flight. The stuff gets real hard but I doubt it's as hard as the phenolics normally used for FF strung bows.
