That bow is looking sharp. And I have plenty of friends who have bad taste in beer but are good folk.

This was before the skins while being shot in. The bow is 70Ē 54# @ 29.5Ē. My draw length. The photo is of me shooting and I shoot with a pretty hard cant. The top limb is slightly weaker and the reflex on the tip didnít hold quite as well as the bottom. The bow flings a 550 grain arrow with some real nice cast. Wife swore it shot faster than my blueridge but sheís wrong. Still sends em down range at a nice clip.
Thanks all for good words.

Newb question here but does adding the snake skin protect it or is it more for aesthetics?
Great looking bow!

Just cosmetic bud. Next one will have sinew under the skins. Thatís the ultimate backing. Protection plus adding cast. I like rattler skins because they are great camouflage. You canít see em till they move.

I do love the look of copperheads on a selfbow. Every thing I found was too short for this bow.
