Thanks for the pics, Steve, that is one sweet looking bow- what kind of wood did you use for the riser and core and where did you get them?
GTA, great idea about the braided fishing line but the last time I fired a shaft with a line attached was in Hawaii during my misspent youth. Test firing a new speargun in the backyard, aiming carefully at the hammock target, and stupidly pulling the trigger, I witnessed the barbed steel shaft whiz away at great speed- until it reached the end of the attached nylon line- whereupon, according to the inexorable laws of physics, it returneth at the same great speed, barely missing my head and burying it’s sharp point in the mango tree behind me! An experiment NEVER TO BE REPEATED!!!!! Bert ( keeping my guardian angel working overtime once again!)
