This is a serious project, that I am developing in coorporation with Monsterbows - a wooden version of these camless leverbows, with Phoenix as background. Monsterbows are working together with a serious bowyer about this project - as far as I know, it is Jim Belcher also working with Sky Archery. I don't have very much details at the moment, other than they are more or less ready to start the project, they have a solid plan - and they are talking about months to realize the wooden version. So with a little bit of luck perhaps in mid summer, the first bows could be ready.
These bows will be very high end, beautiful, outstanding and one of their kinds in the World. We are at the moment talking about making a wooden version of the camless leverbow. But as the price for a single bow on order, is going to be very high (realistically in the $1800-$2500 range) - we are talking about to see if we can gather a group of people who would be seriously interested in such a bow. At the same time, I am thinking that maybe we could make a wooden compound bow, for example in coorporation with Matthews (just example) - in order to reach a even bigger group and therefore drive the price pr. bow even more down.
But this will be a one in a lifetime offer and opportunity, as it will probably be a limited project. Perhaps after this project it would still be possible to order a wooden lever-/compoundbow - but then probably at a higher price than if ordered through this first project. It is a "multiple order" project, with the same rights for the single customer, as if it was a single order - but with the benefits of a special offer, because of the totally bigger order. In short: The more people who joins the project, the lower the price for the single bow.
If you are seriously interested please send me a pm, then I will keep you directly updated with what is going on with the project. Of course, I will also post news and more details in this thread, as it comes. But if you would like to join the project, please send me a pm, with your name and e-mail and what kind of bow you'd like (leverbow / compoundbow), so I can keep track with how many joins the project. It won't be binding - but I'd appreciate that these pre-signup's are quite serious. Later when the details are clear, we will make a final and binding signup to the project.
So maybe there are people out there who's like to be "traditionalists" - with compoundbow? - Or who just would like a wooden version of a leverbow or a compoundbow.
Let's see what it develops into - and how big the interest is.
