well i decided to finally tiller the static recurve that I sinew backed awhile ago so here it is. I havent weighed it yet but im guessing it is pulling somewhere in the neighborhood of 70 or 75 pounds and shoots FAST. I may take the weight down a few pounds but i havent decided. Ive never tillered a recurve before so any comments would be greatly appreciated. I was also wondering if I made the non-working tips too long, anyone else think so?

huflunpoo,Maybe a little more in the middle of the upper limb. It's hard to see precisely since the limbs as some character, but you it will give you a longer draw as well.. Even if you leave it, it looks real good!

Luke, I agree with Rich on tiller. You can leave your statics that length, but pay close attention to slimming them and thinning them as much as you can. They look pretty heavy right now. Grams off the tips are worth ounces off the mid or inner limb. Excellent job overall ...how far ya drawing it?

Luck on it, Luke - I'll post the finished FD too, for comparison. That'll be neat. (I'll bet he did knap that nice point - I just "saw" hin over in the P.I.T.H. at knapping.)Bernie - "Hunters Are People Too"
