2 teaser pics from my bowyer. Talked a little this weekend to him to make sure we were aligned on everything. Ended up going with a 62'' unstrung bow, should sit right at 59'' at brace. 1-2 weeks left and I feel like a kid before Christmas. I may not even really tinker with it until the end of May so I don't forgo shooting my compound and destroy my league scores.

I've already ordered a few arrows to test, clicker, custom Selway, custom antler limb bolts, Ten Ring string, spring rest and some random arrow components.

Reverse limb? If yes, good choice! His reverse limb bow may be the smoothest drawing bow I've ever shot and living a couple minutes from RMSGEAR I get to try a lot of bows! Like butter all the way to 31"!

Yep! It is belly mounted. That is where I first shot one of Cory's bows. I was shooting with Tom Clum Sr and he let me put my booger hooks on his.

My first longbow was/is bacote riser and bacote veneers... love the figure. It has darkened up quite a lot in the 15 years or so I've had it. Yours is going to be a looker!

Turned my pronghorn mount into a silhouette for Drew at Selway to put on a quiver for the bow. Hopefully only another week and it'll be on its way.

I have a heartland bow. It’s awesome! Love the grip and it feels like you can hold all day at full draw. It’s definitely my favorite bow

I lucked out and saw one brand new on RMS gear. I plan on ordering another one at some point to have a back up. Whatever his wait is would be worth it. It’s a shooter

I remember seeing that one on his insta, then on RMSG. Good looking bow man.

So the bowyer decided he had a better wood in mind for my bow. New plan is curly spalted maple limbs and a phenolic / Shedua riser. Sent teaser pics of the limbs.
