I know that Shrew “traps” their longbow limbs as a way to do fine-tune tillering. The design may have other advantages I’m unaware of, but it’s done for practical rather than aesthetical reasons, though I like the way it looks. I’ll invite Gregg Coffey, who builds Shrew bows, to come on here and explain further. Patrick, you never seem to run out of excellent questions: a Zen archer’s “beginner’s mind.” 8)
