I get extra joy in shooting a bow that has the beauty and warmth of wood veneers, such as the Dryad Epic static tip recurve limbs. This is especially true in my case as I conceded on the ILF metal riser front.

My process for cutting the arrow to size, chopping full-length feathers, fletching the shaft using a Bitzenburger, and gluing on a field tip.

Are those "TradTech Glass/Wood Recurve Limbs by Samick" (at Lancaster Archery) the only natural-wood appearing ILF recurve limbs? Are there no others, for those who don't want black or white limbs on their recurves?

I'm looking for a grip that'll fit a Hoyt Excel recurve riser, 21". Found this one used.
Don't know if it's possible to tell just by looking at a grip but, does anyone know what grip this is and if it will fit a Hoyt Excel? Oh and also, what size screws do Hoyt grips generally use?
