I asked Sid to send me pics of his replacement bow for the one I held hostage :)

Here it is

I like mine better :)

Your new bow is beautiful. Job well done





Here is some data that Sid sent along while we were discussing my bow

Well at least for a week I had the baddest bow on the planet :)

I believe mine is a tad heavier so maybe I still do :)

I like yours better, not that big a fan of the engineered woods.

Thanks Grant

I'm normally an all phenolic riser guy these days

This bow was a surprise for me

If you would of told me I would be buying a none ILF or one piece bow any time in the near future I would of said no way

I was considering ordering a Border ILf riser in anticipation of getting on the Hex 7 IlF list

Or the one piece that this bow kinda came off of

I was never thinking 3 piece bolt down

But when I felt this thing and saw that it felt like a dense little one piece but pulled and shot in a more exaggerated way than the 6 I was just blown away

These bows just have character and in a way a bizarre primeval feel .....kinda wicked :)

Some nasty speeds. With that performance why shoot 55#? I could do some serious slaying with a 45# version.

JP, I gotta start lifting so I can shoot yours, my draws a bit longer gonna be 58-60# to yank yours back.

Dang - 5 GPP and haul it back to 32 and I could get some smoking speeds :)

Matt, I'd have to agree however I'd only give it 5 shots before it explodes!!!

LOL
