Thought I’d upload the actual video as well, quality is better than on YouTube
Nearly a year since I got this now, and this week I’ve made it to an equivalent draw weight of about (+/-2lbs maybe) 100lbs @28"
Same bow, 85lbs@30", but with the addition of a 20-25lbs training elastic (as done by Joe Gibbs in his monster 200lbs bow video).
So with a bit of extra training and a little bit of time, I’ll be well on my way to the 120lbs mark (not for a few years yet I want to lay the groundwork with this 85lb-er before I spend big bucks on a big 120 yew bow)
This picture tells me that I need to work a little bit more on my left arm as the elbow is dropping a bit too much for my liking, it was comfortable, but it needs to be a bit further up, like an inch or two max. Right elbow is very high as I’ve got a 29 to 30 inch natural draw.
That big Elm stave I bought should be my 100lbs bow, I’m hoping to make it with guidance from the bowyer that made my bow here.
