In General, edge grain will contribute to the cast of the bow more than flat grain.

In General, Flat grain looks better under the glass than edge grain.

In General, when making a glass laminated bow the most important contributor to bow weight is the overall thickness of the limb, not the core material used.

Many bowyers use edge grain in the core laminations, then flat grain laminations right under the glass for looks.

Have fun!
