Here is my maple recurve and the stats:
68" ntn, #55@30, 168 fps with 530grain arrow.

It has been built primarily as a workhorse reliable bow, not for speed. If large nocks and extra mass at the limb tips are removed the speed would probably go up by another 10ish fps. This is my first wood recurve (and last so far).

Oz: Beautiful bow and smart design for a recurve. Any chance of front and unbraced views? What wood? Tim

A beauty Oz! I like the looks of that bow. What type of stain and finish is that?

Thanks for the photos too!

Congratulations - very nice bow, very clean and smooth lines !

May I ask you some questions ?
- How wide is at flares ?
- Are the limbs are excactly pyramid ?
- Is the bow backed ?
- What is the lenght of the recurves ?
- How many inches the recurves are bent forward ?

Thank you in advance,
Kosio

Thanks Kosio,

-Flare width 3
-The limbs are exactly pyramid but thicker in the recurved parts to make it a static recurve
-The bow is not backed, no need at all.
-Recurves are 8 long measured around the bend.
Recurves are bent forward 3 but after a lot of shooting have settled at 1 projection beyond the back of the bow. These references are about the string nocks. The set has occurred in the straight parts of the limbs, not in the recurves.
