This thing is turning out amazing. How long is the wait list right now for a build?

Next time just say something like, "I think it'll be fine . I'll try to buff it out."

I figured it was something to that affect. Also obvious it was just on top of the wood.

Makes me think about that saying about the sculpture is already there. The artist just removes the extra material.

Just some thoughts from a performance standpoint,.. a few Primal Tech strengths in my view include:

1 - Point-ability. Meaning that, for me at least, arrow trajectory out of the bow aligns with what I expect it to be when visualizing the shot. This is a differentiating performance quality.

2 - Riser design and mass (weight) result in an excellent relationship between minimizing hand shock, shot noise, and a sleek bow that isn’t too heavy for deep woods huntin.

3 - It’s number 3, but probably the most important from a huntin weapon cool factor standpoint,.. and it is the ‘primal’ accents that Randy incorporates into the bow (horn and antler overlays, sweet burled/figured woods, and the aggressive hooks on the recurve limbs look like trouble. The 3-piece recurve shape is also a touch primeval…so that’s an x-ring for Randy.

I haven’t shot his 1-piece bows, but I bet they are high performers as well.

Mine isn't slated to be as beautiful as yours. But Randy doesn't build ugly bows.

Thx Jake..

Hey DRT,.. yes sir. The buckeyes are mostly g10 to increase riser mass, but wanted more wood figure on this bow so went with myrtl on both the riser’s belly and spine. The myrtl riser is still pretty hefty with the g10 flare.. which is excellent as you know for low hand shock.

I don't know squat about wood is why Randy has a pretty blank slate with me. He just knows I'm using them to kill with.

Do you have to specify limb tips? All three of these have different limb tips! I have one on order and like the smaller tips!

Not lately it seems. But my PT will be back from it's tummy tuck in a few days and I fully intend to start back on them asap. Shooting these other bows just isn't the same.

Hey DRT - is the tummy tuck a weight reduction or refinish? It’s cool that Randy will continue to customize his bows to the end user.

Ttechhunter - I specified the tip material and Randy sharpened the most recent set for the myrtl bow. Get with Randy and I bet he can shape what you’re looking for.

Ttechhunter - also, the narrowest tips are on the PT longbow, the other two bows are recurves.
