I am shocked this guy will build them that cheap. I know I wouldn't

These bows are not going to be smoking fast, but I don't see any reason it wouldn't be a good start. Just get one with a shelf to start out IMO. The baron looks decent.

I'm leery myself--when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. That being said, I have no hands-on experience with those bows. If they are anywhere close to being as advertised, the bowyer should be up to his/her eyeballs in orders in no time. If not, well.....word will spread soon enough.

That is pretty cheap for some of those designs. I noticedhis moretouchy designs are underglass. That way he can mass producing them to make up for cost. The solid bows are of more forgivening designs, agian, using volume to make up cost. I feel this is why his bows are so cheap. Which does not translate as a bad bow. Could be a good bows with a mass producible design. Never know till you try.
