Just finished up this latest bow – 40# draw @ 28”, 68” long. The riser and deco layer in the limbs are made of curly english walnut and wenge, finished with a coat of boiled linseed oil and then three coats of helmsman urethane. The limbs have fiberglass on either side, with a strip of hickory and then the deco layer that has an angled fade from the walnut to wenge.
I’ve not yet clocked the arrow speed from it, but it draws and shoots very smoothly and seems to have good penetration against my target.
This one is for a friend over in the Netherlands, the wood choice and emblem on the side (an icon from Skyrim) were his choices. I’m not sure I would normally have picked two dark woods like that, but have to say I really like how they look together.
