    As it says, what do you use as a recurve?

    Longstick,

    That's a tough act to follow. Those are some fine looking bows you have there. Care to give us the guided tour?

    Cheers,

    Patrick

    Top to bottom

    Stalker Surge made by Stalker Recurves, a real classic lines bow, but bow does she thump em

    EagleWing Talon II made by Steve Tallant, easily the smoothest bow to draw, points extremely well. It's basically a Black Widow on steroids. The static tips make this bow a sheer please to shoot and she looks real sweet as well.

    Next up is Morrison 17" ILF riser, Bacote with Cocobolo. If you want to shoot ILF and want to shoot a wood riser, Bob is the man to go to. I currently use SF limbs on her and it has become my target and training bow.

    Last up is my Toelke Curlew, the pictures do not do the bow justice. Out of all the bows pictured Dan's work outshines them all. His craftsmanship is suberb. I would never hesitate to buy from him.

    Longstick,

    Thanks. Beautiful bows.

    Nightwing,

    I have a serious soft spot for those Blacktails...one day, maybe.

    Bowferd,

    That's a classy bow you have there.

    Cheers,

    Patrick

    Those bows are pieces of furniture for sure. All are fine and would fit my hand just right. Would be a nice addition to my house also. Beautiful bows!

    I think a wait for a Blacktail now is up to 18 months.

    Another recurve similar in design and riser shape is a Wes Wallace bow and the wait for one is around 8 months.

    Voodoo,


    ...WOW! The all natural bows are amazing. I could look at those all day and keep seeing new details.

    Nightwing,

    I'll have to look at the Wallace bows. Thanks.

    Cheers,

    Patrick

    **The all natural bow is the one leaning on the deer pelt, it was built for me by James Parker,(with my guidance on the riser) and is the only one I know of that's ever been built with no glass........Mr. Parker has won many bow of the month and bow of the year awards at Primitive Archer magazine........the man is truly an artist.....and soon as I send him a couple risers, I believe he will be building couple more but they will be kinda expensive.........if they are even offered for sale.....

    Steve, I've heard you might be working on an ILF compatible elk riser....any truth?

    Kind of early yet but I will doing a few, not quite sure how they will turn out as I haven't done the proto yet, but it's been in my head for a while now...soon as my list is caught up I'll be getting on it, just can't see experimenting when I have fellas waiting for their bows..

    okbow68, Thanks, that quiver and bow was a prize I did for Ryan Ramsey, he won a Trad competition I sponsored called "The Ogre Challenge" in memory of my son Spc. Dustin "The Ogre" Hartley.. it was 160 targets over about 3 1/2 miles in 2 1/2 days...... it was a very grueling shoot and He definitely earned it!!!
