A young man showing the 10 ring hit he made with his tadpole at the Fawn creek 3D shoot!
"I took 1st place at AIHEC archery comp. I out shot every tribal college in the United states with my 64" Toelke whip 50# @28". Thanks dan for such an amazing bow representing Montana with a Montana custom bow."
This bow is fantastic! Smooth drawing, virtually silent, and the arrow goes exactly where I'm looking if I do my part. Seems more accurate than other R/D bows I've shot. The performance is impressive to say the least. She loves 7" 9/16 brace and just a hair under 5/8 nock. In all my confidence has already grown to what I would expect of a target bow... and she's a hunting bow. That's the utility end. You really understand hand anatomy, as the handle provides molded feel; once the draw begins it's rock solid laterally. This allows my to actually relax the fingers and just push.
As far as looks? How about a piece of furniture? Does that capture the essence of your craftsmanship? No seams, glue lines, and the core layers flow together and into the riser almost as if they were liquid. In fact the way that the Cocobolo narrows at the fades and continues to the tips in a wafer thin core is artwork plain and simple. Juniper is probably my favorite veneer for a limb as it reminds me of knotty pine and lodges out West. The coloring on these limbs is striking, and my coworkers were oohing and ahhing over the entire piece, but the limbs caught everyone's attention.
Thank you again for such quick delivery; it was amazing how fast it got here.
