    New to me: Black Widow X-200 68" , what might I use to "moosh" the finish around Just got a new to me Black Widow X-200 68", and in a very hard to find draw length 29# at 31" draw! Pics over on the traditional Archerytalk forum, cannot figure out how to add here. Was built for "Jay...

    Hey. I've been contemplating... And let me make this clear... With very little thought and happy to give up on the idea too... The idea of giving my Viking bow riser a deeper finish. Currently, see picture, it has what I would describe as a very thin finish. What I'm not all that keen on is the...

    Prior to mounting a Limbsaver, I gently wiped the surface of my matte black finish Border CV-W limbs with some denatured alcohol (NOT acetone) and it seemed to rub off, leaving this: Is this normal? I sent Border an email but given their recent online issues I doubt I'll get a timely...

    I have plans to do some minor adjustment to the grip of a bow that has a 2-part epoxy finish. I was considering ordering up some of the Thunderbird epoxy and a Preval disposable spray can to refinish the bow once I completed the work, but the cost makes me look much harder at the can of spar...

    Hey Sid, or anyone who has experience with Border limbs and their finishes. I have a set of CXG's that I shoot Field with, looks like I got a little overspray with some Deet on the lower one and down by the string groove where I steady the bow on my leg as I set my grip, I also got some bug...

    Anyone have these? If so, are they a glossy or satin or matte finish? thanks. It's surprisingly difficult to find this out via google. They look satiny. :-R

    Anyone know the type of finish paint Hoyt used over the primer on the old Gold Medalist risers? Is it a urethane like Imron? I don't want to take a similar riser down to bare metal to shoot a new color on it. Thanks.

    Saw a used one of these for sale. I think a few members on here have a Cobra riser with the snakeskin finish. How does it look up close and personal? I assume it is a film dipped finish. Wondering about the durability over the long haul. Any opinions welcome. thanks.

    Anyone ever use this stuff? It's a 2-component urethane clear coat (acrylic resins) that comes in a special spray can. Do you think it would work on limbs? It would need to be somewhat flexible, but aren't most bow finishes 2 part coatings (like Thunderbird)...

    Sid just wondering if it would be possible to have limbs finished in tinted clear-coat. I only ask as I was looking at a friends carbon fly rod today and it is finished in a lovely bronze lacquer and the way the light catches the carbon underneath is stunning. I'm just musing, but a set of hex's...

    Got these Hex5h limbs used, they are in good shape except the finish is flaking off. As you can see this is occurring mainly where the limb savers were which actually came off with the finish, but now the finish is continuing to flake off. I know Border will refinish for $125 + overseas...

    What would be best for a clear finish on my laminated longbow? I would like a thick "plastic" coating for protection and strength... Will any product increase draw weight? Two-Part Epoxy? (pros, cons) Varathane? (pros, cons) What do the professionals use?

    Hey guys, relatively new shooter here. Been shooting compound for a couple months now, and just bought a 21" Hoyt Excel riser last night. I'd like to pick your brains regarding the rest of the setup. I have a 28" draw length and 60# on my Diamond Outlaw. I've been trying to get my hands on...

    I picked up a set of used BF extremes and am wondering about the finish. The seller never mentioned any refinishing soo.. As a former production spray painter, I ask if Samicks finish on "Oly" Limbs appears kind of thick and are pinholes along the limb edges the norm? I would find it hart to...

    I've been trying to decide how I want to do a riser and I like what I've read about the bedliner spray finish. However, everthing that I've seen only comes in black. I've got nothing against black, but my limbs are black and I would like the riser to be camo. Has anyone tried painting the...

    What is the most predominant finish from bow makers for finishing limbs-Fullerplast? Is there a good thread anyone can recommend?

    I was wondering about the durability of the camo finish on Gamemasters. I had a black maple one that held up pretty well. I like the camo, but wonder how durable it is? Bob
