  • Q:

    I hunt in thick brush and like a short bow. Can this bow be cut down to, say, 60 AMO? If not, is there a similar product that can be adapted to such a short AMO?

      A:

      I do not you recommend that you cut this bow down due to the design of this style. Your bow lenght you need must also be determined by your draw lenght this bow may hold up with short lenght if you had previous experience building and tillering bow and get the upper and lower equal.

  • Q:

    Does this product come with everything needed such as string and instructions on how to make this bow correctly for a first time bow maker?

      A:

      No, this bow will not come with a string or instructions. I recommend that you get a dvd on bow building before purchasing this kit. Rattlestick by Gary Davis is a good source of bow building information and technique.

  • Q:

    can I get this blank (and any of your other blanks) WITHOUT a shelf roughed in? (I got one made that way from the HH co. years ago.) - I shoot ambidextrously AND off the knuckle.

    Can the finished bow be drawn to 30", at say 55 to 60 pounds?

      We may be able to special order a blank for you, give us a call at 1-866-587-9501 and we will get some information from you.

      You should be able to tiller the bow down to that weight at 30".

      A:

      You would be able to back this bow with any of those options. I would recommend using Titebond for all of the different backings.

  • Q:

    This will be my first project and I am wondering if the bow is tapered at the ends or not? Can it be left the way it comes shipped and just tillered to my desired weight or will I have to shape the bow before tillering?

    What do I need to do to get this shooting. Also will it be good for bowfishing with a AMS retriver pro mounted by a AMS traditonal mout? Thanks

      A:

      Their is a lot of steps for building a bow.I would call in and talk to one of the Tecs before buying one so you know what tools are needed.A good bowfishing bow is the Sage and your AMS would mount strait to it. This set up would work better and be more cost effective.
