Default Indecision stinks

You think about buying a bow to long and it won't be there anymore.

Sometimes it's not meant to be...

Couldn't decide on 50lb Thunderchild. Pretty bow.

He messaged me he's willing to cut me a good deal. If so I will.

Yeah I hope so cause that one cost me 10 hours of hard work. But then again, if it ain't hard, it ain't work.

I bought another bow that I didn't need by 4:30 yesterday morning. It was a really low price so I bought it. Now I am wondering if I should keep it or try to make fifty bucks and pass it on. This morning I wake up and find a Shafer Silvertip priced right and try to buy it but it already sold. The moral of the story is when a guy has too many bows he should stay away from the classifieds. It is an addiction. Enjoy your new toy Gary. I need to move on and see what is for sale today that wasn't there yesterday.

I've heard good things about Big Jim's bows and they look great. Corey's friend John had one at Chester and I got to check it out. A used one is probably the way to go, because there's a year wait for a new one. I'm interested in seeing how you like it.

I've been looking for a used PSR. Like looking for a needle in a hay stack. This one may not be a recurve but it's time I expanded my horizons. This bow has pretty lines and wood looks good. It's a little lighter than my PSA but that's alright. It will still be 45+ at my DL I think.

Thanx. He sent me a pic of the shipping receipt. Hopefully I'll see it this coming week.

Well I got the Big Jim and it's a good looking bow. Having almost no experience with a long bow I was worried. But it shoots well enough. First seven arrows at ten yards.

15 yards sitting. I'm digging this bow. Significantly louder than my Widow. But the straighter grip, light weight and natural point of it make make anchoring and follow through smooth.

Big Jim makes a good bow, used to see a ton of them at shoots when I was living on the East Coast. Congrats on the new stick, looks like it points well for you!

Thank you! I'm going to have to do some tuning. The arrows are set up for my Widow which is a three pound draw difference. I'll play around with brace height to see if I can tweek it out. A little fish tail I see.

I have some full length 400 shafts that I can leave really long and build some arrows to try.

Thanx. I'm pretty excited about it. Even the arrows I have for my Widow, which are much to stiff, hitting that well makes me wonder how good it will be with matched arrows.
