    a chinook will be mine at some point in the future as well. I had one that was way to heavy for me but I knew then it was one awesome bow. if I dont get a used one, mine will also be 58" but mine will be around 40#

    Check out timberhawk bows. Scott makes some fantastic bows. I love my bob lee but timberhawks are awfully nice also.

    They truly do. I was at one point debating between the Black Widow PSR and the reintroduction Bear 59 Kodiak and Toelke. Found a PSR at the Stickbow classifieds but that turned out to be a scammer selling a $1200 bow for $400 -which turned out that he stole images of a psr that was on sale here and posting them in the stickbow classifieds. When it's too good to be true, generally it is. Besides, I liked the fact that Dan made this bow specific to fit in my hand. It doesn't get better than that.

    We can check the Border Black Douglas out of the list as well. After making an artful deal, I managed to acquire a used one from a member of this site this morning. I should receive it before the weekend.

    One thing I realized while hoarding these wooden sticks: They hold their value much better than firearms or sometimes even gold. Especially when you buy a used custom bow from any of the brands we've been talking about, you are almost certain to get your money back if not make a couple of buck on top. Seriously, it wouldn't be a stretch to list a Bob Lee Signature Elite in excellent condition in these forums for $750. Am I right?

    I took the Chinook to the league this Tuesday, and bunch of guys shot it and they shot it really good (some better than me. Unacceptable!). The Axis Traditionals fly excellent with this bow.

    Nah! I'm replacing one addiction with another. A hint: One German WW2 Mauser I sold to the local store was enough to cover a high end custom bow. This is my testing period to see what I really like and would like to keep. You may end up seeing at least half of these bows back here for sale.

    I've been there an done that with used bows. I found out two main things, there are lots of really nice bows out there and that a few of them really resonate with me. It's a fun thing to do and not very expensive if you do it right.

    Exactly. Now, I only need to get my hands on a good Schafer Silvertip. I found one on another site (the scammer paradise), but it was 62# and had a name on it. I don't mind 62# for myself but not for a bow I'm trying out for the first time in case I decide to turn around and sell it.

    PS. There is little to no difference in pull stack between 50# and 60# limbs on a Great Plains S.R Swift recurve. Now that's pretty impressive. I can feel there is a difference in the arrow flight and impact but not in draw.

    Congrats on the Toelke Chinook, some fine looking craftsmanship there.

    I have been on the fence between one of Dans' Whips or a Stalker Dingo FXT as my next 1pc Lonbow, seeing your Chinnok & the workmanship makes it even harder to decide now..

    My whip should be done in a week. I went with the 2 piece option. You can't go wrong with either choice.
