Re: 2014 Australian Longbow and Recurve Muster

My family and I will be there with bells on Gene, just out of curiosity have you guys had a Agm and voted in a new president and that or is Nutgrass still the man? Be nice to see either you or nutty leading the club into this years muster.

Re: The Making of a Ranger Bows Recurve

Very nice mate, I am sure the new owner will love it for many years to come. I really like that timber you used in the limbs.

Re: Where to buy bow woods?

You can go and have a look at lazarides, they have a good range of stuff and it's local to you.

Re: dreambow

I would prefer to shoot one of my own recurves above anything else, but if had to buy a longbow i would buy a Big Jim, they are a seriously good bow, then a Black widow after that and a great plains after that.

Re: How Fast

That was awhile ago now, I have redesigned the risers somewhat and I am going to static tips now to try to smooth them out and help with performance, well that's the plan anyway. :biggrin:

Re: shoot better with heavy bows or lighter bows?

That"s right Fanto, if you use back tension on a heavy bow and pull through with that tension it's almost like you are unable to hold it anymore and the release is a surprise, as good back tension releases are supposed to be. But light bows the release is more forced. Dan I like shooting heavy bows ...

Mate i had a great plains bow and it was fantastic, i would send them an email and see if they will come to the party as it would be sad to see it go.
