Hi Guy's
Just thought I would introduce myself, and some of my gear.

These Bows I made myself. They are Hickory Backed Tri Laminate ELB's, one on the left is 75" NtN, 55lb @ 30" and the one on the right is 79"NtN, 63lb @ 30". I have just sourced some more hickory so my next few project's will be a warbow or five!!!

Arrows are my first attempt, Horn nocked, I like the long tails on the fletches, they sound awesome in the air.

I am a member up here at DVA, and cant wait to come down and have a shoot with you guy's as my first love is the great english bows. Its in my blood.




Mick.

hello Mick,
your first attempts at bow and arrows looks pretty good. Infact they are the loveliest horn nocks on a bow I have ever seen. And the bow and arrows look gorgeous too.
Welcome to LMS Archery and I look forward to seeing you down here one day.
Cheers, Silverlady.
