    in reply to: twisted limbs #43163

    Few years ago I resolved same problem as fallow :

    Heat twisted limbs on boiling water

    Then strait them with both hands keep them straight during cold limbs under cold water

    It works . Of course this is possible with wood and glass fiber limbs

    Modern high quality limbs with carbon do not twist

I dont even know if I can get the poundage changed now or if its to late but thats something I will have to call and find out. First I wanted to ask this question before I even call. I ordered it at 50# @ 28″. The recurve I am shooting now is the same specs but I have been thinking that maybe I should have went 45#. I shoot pretty decent with 50# but have been thinking I would be steadier at 45#. All I am hunting is whitetails so I figure 45# should be plenty enough poundage. Everybow I have is 50# and up. Not sure what I should do. It may even be to late to do anything depending on how far along Dave is with the bow.

    Call Dwyer, if your bow not finished there is no reason not to change

    If bow is build , it’s a very bad idea to reduce poundage 😯

    This bow is a fantastic craftsmanship, but what about performance ?

    If you’r in love with this bow I can undurstand , but just to put this bow on your wall

    performance bows are an other thing

    I’m in love with Blacktail bows from Norm Johnson , but thèses bows are made as piece of art

    I would’t go hunting with such an expensive jewel and if I reconize Blacktail bows are top of esthetic they are very far from the best of tecknoogie and performance

    Some bows are made for exhibition others for performance

    Just have to know wthat you’r looking for

My black widow draws to a out 52 lbs at my draw length but I had to tune my arrows to levels I would have expected from a 65lb or more bow. Fast flight strings seem to really throw some power into any setup.

    And if you shoot the new Border Hunter bow you will have same results with Borderbow @ 42 than with Black Widow 55 Lbs

    I tryed

    If soap and water do not work

    Use sand paper then canned warnish on a side and a nice snake skin glued on other side

    Easy, fast and nice

    And he is easy to work with.

    A friend of mine shoot his second african Buffalo last year with a Dwyer 65 Lbs long bow

    He shoots from 30/40 feet with 800 grains Arrow

    Esquimo 300 grains browhead

    I got a Black Douglas Border bow ( made in Scotland)

    42 Lbs @ 28

    This bow shoots 401 grains arrows 190 / 197 fps

    401 grains with 42 Lbs bow are 9,55 grains per Lbs

    This is a litle difference between first and hight price bow
