Default Needed a recurve

I actually shot better with my recurve in Fort Worth. As uncomfortable as it was, the grip just fits how I hold the bow. I shot with Chuck (76 Aggie) and found myself really admiring his Bob Lee. My grizzly shoots great but 58 with a 30 draw is stacky and pinchy. Well I got home and started looking at the Bob Lee website. I fell in love with the looks of the Darkhart. I started designing one and decided to look what they had for stock bows. One exactly how I was designing at really good weight was ready to go. Two days of pleading my case with the wife and around 1.5K later, it arrived at the house. Got her all strung up and braced correctly. I have to say this thing has a perfect grip. It flings an arrow pretty fast too. This bow is 46#@ 28. 52# at my DL. A very comfortable and smooth 64 AMO. Really happy with it. Very happy with their customer service. Second to none. I still love my blueridge but a Darkhart was a great addition.

Great looking bow Ken! I really love my Bob Lee and you are right - they are great people to deal with. I enjoyed meeting y’all this weekend - sorry you got caught in that downpour during your first round!

Jerp, it was good meeting you. Great course too! CRM, the overlay on the back of the grip is burled walnut, next is bubinga, a stripe of curly maple and mycarta. The belly is african Shedua. The limbs are burled oak the tips look amazing. Can’t fit the whole bow in a pic though.

Nice bow Ken, my brother loves his Bob Lee. He picked it up from the man himself who was gracious enough to sign it with a personal message. Are you going to break it in at Bastrop?

Nice new bow Ken !
Grizzlies to me are good hunting maneuverable bows cause they are short but if you have a long draw shooting extended time can get to you. I have one in 50 and it shoots fast I shot a doe a some javelinas with mine but I retired it a early 1970s model.
Bob Lee can't go wrong .

Good looking bow Ken. You cannot go wrong with a Bob Lee. Jennifer is a good woman. Even better since she let you get the new bow.

You know, I saw your name on the results and said dang it! Somehow I missed meeting you. I met quite a few other guys on here.

She is good. Though, I think it may have come with an extended stay in the dog house. Ive either been at work or outside shooting and tuning it.

Nice bow and nice wife Ken.

I like Bob Lee recurves along with the guys making and selling them. Your thread got me thinking, I don't even own a recurve and I have a birthday coming up.

Ken, don't worry too much about the doghouse. I have been in mine for most of 42 years now. Gets more comfortable the more you are in it.

Those bows have a shelf that is cut 3/16 past center. Makes for a forgiving bow when shooting different kinds of arrows.
