Sounds great!


Bob, I'd post some pics but my 'puter is on the fritz & I can't open the dang program to DL from my camera.

See if you can go and borrow the neighbors!!!

Actually that's a pic of Karens bow. It was one of the 1st CX's OL made & Karen tested it for a couple mos. before deciding that was the one she wanted. We sent it back to be refinished & I had OL make mine to match.

BTW, the limbs are black, I donno why they came out that color in the picture.

Man Vic, I'm jealous! Shoot, with what you have spent on bows lately I'd be 1/2-way to Oz for my water buffalo! [:@] Guess I'll have two bows to check out at the KK next year! [8D] I should have "The Whizzer of Oz" (the [email protected] td Crusader I have on order) by then, I might even let you hold it while I put your bows to the test.


Congrats bro! Know you will break in it right this coming season. Now, if I could just get Betsy to start shooting a Crusader......but she is tickled with her td recurve [:'(] and doing really well with it.

Chad, the only $$ I've been out [lately] is on the BW 'curve. That's one good thing about OL's long 2 yr + wait, it makes the bow(s) much more affordable.

Well, I'm out the door on the way to Canada on a company venture, be back Monday or Tuesday. Keep em straight y'all.

Coming from a complete novice in Traditinal archery, but the workmanship on those bows looks beautiful. If it shoots half as good as it looks you'll be sitt'n pretty!

My Favorite longbow is the Kimsha Mattawoman II. Sweet shooter that still looks like a longbow.

Well, back from Niagra Falls. Man, whatta great trip we had!

Anyhooo, got in late yesterday evening & still had enuff light left to step out back & fling a few RRA tapered cedars outta 'Thumper'! Man, Adcock makes an awesome bow!

My plan was to tune/detune my new longbow & my recurve until both shoot very close to the same (for me), then take 'em on an upcoming (Sept '05) caribou hunt & attempt to kill a nice bull w/both bows. Would that be awesome or WHAT!!? Now I figured it would be fairly difficult to get both bows shooting the same POI at 20 yds, but they already shoot very very close. I may (or may not) need to do a tad more tweeking on one or the other before I'm completely satisfied, but it's looking like getting the bows to shoot together is gonna be much easier than I had anticipated! YEEEOW-ZAAA!

Chad,

Have to say the 2 piece Crusader is also my favorite longbow, and my 2 piece Attila is my favorite short recurve. Love the "black look". The Attila will outshoot a BW SAG. It did my Widow, anyway.. Sold the BW and really don't miss it..lol..
Good shooting to all of you..
