This is a great product, not very hard to apply to bow. It add alittle more strenght to the hickory self bows I build. Looks great. I use tite bond 3 to apply, just cover back of bow with the tite bond and lay the backing over the glue. start in the center of the bow once you have got the backing applied and smooth out toward the limb tips. Let ti dry for about 24hr and then trim off the excess backing from the sides. Then seal the backing with a good urithain, I like the spray on kind. Apply and give it about an hr to dry and repeat. Do this at least 3 or 4 times. It will really bing out the look of the snake skin and protect it from the weather. Try it you will love this product.

The copperhead snakeskin backing is easy to use - apply a thin to medium layer of Tite Bond III to the bow then starting at the center smooth the cloth over the limbs working both sides from the center. Apply another complete coat of TBIII over the skin, smooth it out and let it settle. Trim the ends to fit beforehand and trim the sides with a sharp knife before it is completely dry (8 - 10 hours)The colors jump out and are very realistic after a coat of poly.The cons - at 1 1/2 inch wide it doesn't cover the width of the limb at the widest.Also at $$ it is about twice what I think is reasonable. All in all I would use it again if I catch it on sale.

            Comments about Artificial Snakeskin Backing:

            These are a great choice for the average guy. They provide excellent camo for a bow that may have a lighter color back. They are easy to apply. I used smooth on epoxy on my bow as it has a glass back, but Titebond III will also work, with the adage of easier removal.
            I only gave it 4 stars because it is ot the real deal, but for the price. I really like this product, and would recommend it as a affordable solution to real skins.
            The delivery time was second to none. It took less than a week to arrive in my mailbox here in Ontario Canada.

                  The artificial snake skin is an excellent alternative to the real thing. It looks as well as snake skin but is much easier to work with, it also comes in a very convenient 6ft length.

                  Service was great and delivery was on time.

                    The light cotton material was not what I expected and I didn't know if it would work well. However, with careful gluing, cutting and sealing using a quality finish, the results were well worth it.

                    I was surprised to find a piece of printed cloth when I open the package. It is not worth the price and I am returning it and the Polyurethand spray for an exchange.

                      Comments about Artificial Snakeskin Backing:

                      I bought this to back a 70's Ben Pearson 7370 Hawk recurve. I added phenolic resin tip overlays and decided to refinish the whole bow. I wasn't crazy about the brown glass on the old Ben Pearson, and decided to try this material. I sanded the back of the bow and coated it in Titebond III, layed the material on and coated it as well. After it set I cut the edges, sanded the edges and used a rub on polyurethane. It was tedious and a little difficult at times, but well worth the effort. My little old BP Hawk sure looks as good as it shoots.

                        I applied the "skin" as a backing for a kid's hickory bow and used Tite Bond III. After drying I trimmed with a razor blade and finished with polyurethane. Looks very much like real snake skin.

                            I didnt like the look of the color the backing had when I got it but after I applied it and then finished it the color looked alot better. Over all a good product but I think its over priced. I would recommend it to a friend but I would caution them about the price.

                                  I tried the copperhead cloth skin and found that it was a very dull color, not lifelike at all and it was easy to apply but hard to trim cleanly and it soaked up finish like crazy. Nothing at all like the real thing or even the vinyl stuff.
