    Happy Birthday to Mr Owen!

    I count myself as fortunate to have one of his bows. I don't shoot recurve much, but my Jeffery Royal Hunter is a great shooting bow. Good looking too.

    They are too long if the limb bolts are screwed all the way in. If you want to reduce draw weight and screw them out a bit, you need more cable rod, since the cable slide will come back further.
