This was meant to be a 35lb take down recurve at 60" and ended up being just a couple of pounds heavier. I didn't want to take any more of hte limbs since they are quite thin for a recurve and whilst I have used Stabil core to resist twisting I had got the tiller right so stuck at 38lb. I made this bow for my son but he's going to have to grow into it - he'll probably be shooting it next year when he moves up to the white pegs!
Again it's turned out to be a really nice shooting bow. The solid bubingha handle is fairly heavy and it really adds stability to the bow. There was a huge amount of guess work when making the limbs and I ended up laminating black glass, bamboo parallel, bamboo tapered, stabil core under clear glass. The stabil core looks stunning under the glass. Loads of luck meant I got pretty close to what I wanted.
