Re: Native American Pinch Grips (reply)
2traxx, that's understandable since the "Old Wild West Shows" concentrated on the "Plains Indians" primarily- The East coast Indians used (for the most part) much longer bows and pulled the string and arrow rather than pushing. Gary

Re: Asiatic style PVC horse bows with wooden siyahs (reply)
The 40-45# weight is a respectful pull - I'm not a modern materials type of guy but, that's impressive work. Very pleasing overall shape and good string angle in reference to the styah placement. Gary

Re: Selfbow finishing. (reply)

Re: Can anyone help explain why? (reply)
Do not start taking wood off until it's necessary or at least until you find out IF you have a problem in the first place. Don't forget the bow was "Cold" when you started drawing it- brace it and then leave it alone for at least 15...
