TOOK a little time today to set up my new-to-me DAS gen1 prototype riser with my new-to-me-used-to-have & bought-back WINEX limbs. GRIP feels great in my hand.
36-longs THANKS A.S. go about 43# on it, I have bolts out 2 turns.
Brace is 7.25" and even tiller.
I put on one of my strike plate studs from ANTON and set centershot.
String is from Allen at 10ringstrings.
This rig shoots NICE.......I am blessed.
LIBBY approves but likes her blue bone best.
I set up my new-to-me DAS GEN2 nat gear camo riser too.
I put on my DAS-carbon-fiber-finish WINEX 38#-shorts with bolts out 2 turns.
It wears my LOESCH grip, so it feels like home to me, I've had it I THINK 10 years.
Done buying bows now. OK I'm not signing any documents on it.
But I'm starting to get content.
I'm very jealous.. how do you find these things??

Great looking rigs Steve. It's true about his finger prints. All the risers, DAS and Hoyts converted to DAS, that I own came from Steve. With the exception of my Tribute.

Both of these are sweet risers, but that Gen1 is special.

I have a Left Handed red anodized DAS Elite II. From what I gathered doing research on it years ago it is one of only 13 that David made. I'll have to dig around in my laptop and see if i still have any photos. If not, I'll take a few to post.

Life dragged me away from traditional archery for awhile but I'm slowly getting back into it. I recognize a few of the names in this thread. Glad to see your all still around.

Thanks guys. I guess I wasn't given to be TALL RICH or good looking, but I can find stuff.
Anton, yeh me too WISH I COULD SHOOT BETTER, haaha really I guess I shoot well enough for me.
DAVE, for the adjustable strike plate, I will just cover it with some kind of crud. I have several kinds of camo cloth - I might just Barge Cement a bit of green on it. I shot it today bare......not noisy or anything the way it was. SHINY little thang.
JOHN, I remember your handle from joining about same time I did, on here, WELCOME BACK. It'll be nice to see your lefty ELITE.

My very first DAS riser has returned to the roost.
I now have a matching set, left handed and a right handed Bronze Dalaas.
And this is how the obsession with collecting DAS bows started.
Cheers,
Erich

Not a DAS bow but a collector. A Quinn Stallion. Another one that can back home.
Cheers

That Gen1 looks real nice, Steve. What sort of cushioning material do you put on that adjustable sideplate?

Hope you don't mind if I comment on this. I've tried a couple things. One is fuzzy side Velcro. The other was Cordovan leather. Of the two the Cordovan worked the best as the Velcro developed a significant worn spot. Barge or Goop to hold it on.

Lovely Gen 1, Rooster. See you have both of the brass weights on it too. That really balances the bow. I like mine too.
Cheers,
Erich

I have really never been gone. I come and lurk every so often to see what is new. Glad to see a lot of old friends still posting. Catch up on the gossip and reply if someone has a question I can contribute to.
Cheers,
Erich

ERICH, I have 3 of the screw-in DAS weights, 1 original, 1 you made, and 1 Anton made.
They are REALLY hard to tell which is which. Nice job outtaa you & Anton.

ONE THING I've seen is that a lot of the earlier GEN1 risers I've had & seen pictures of had the rubber pads stop short of the limb bolt areas, but I've had SOME LATER ones (it's a guess) that had the rubber pads go all the way to the back pocket wall.
OR MAYBE the ones I thought were later ones had had the pads replaced by users witht he full sized pads.
