So I've been playing around with different string silencers, both bows have the recurve version Limbsavers on them and they definitely make a difference. The wool puffs look cool and quiet things well, but aren't durable and get smaller fast, especially with sticky seeds, etc., and they hold water. Had the green bow pretty quiet with a single rubber cat whisker, 2 was too much weight and arrow acted stiff.

I had tried Bowjax before, worked good on one recurve but not as well with the Mamba I hunted with for several years. They are lighter and tried a pair on the green bow since I was setting up a new string. Nice thing I have found with these hybrids is they are really easy to fine tune  bare shaft by moving the weight up and down the string. The lighter green bow needs the Bowjax pretty far out on the string, the heavier charcoal bow tunes with them closer to the center. Same bow with the heavier whiskers likes them closer to the tips. From what I can tell both types of silencers work well, plus very durable and water resistant.

Its always archery season. >>>---------->

Rewarding myself after a busy summer with another custom made bow from the same bowyer Kegan at Omega Longbows. This one is more of a true longbow at 66", the Royal Huntsman, but still has reflex/deflex for better speed. Going with Buckskin Dymalux for the riser, it's tan, brown and black, like the ASAT camo I like; with brown fiberglass on the limbs. Low to mid 40s for draw weight. He was behind and just started taking orders again, my build is to start 12/13, he's already into January after 2 days.

Sounds awesome Jeff, Congrats! I looked into them last year when you shared your last bow. I may grab one if I have time to even use it lol! I know how that is. I sent out a memo in early June saying I canít look and measure or give bids On new jobs until April of next year. Thatís still looking to close for comfort.
It's not being cocky if you can back it up!

I'm getting to the point where my time is valuable and work not so much. Luckily, business has been great, don't even answer the phone anymore and as full as I want to be, tough to turn down money.... time to raise the rates.

Bowyer went up $100 on each bow and I think he should go higher with the demand, still less expensive than a new Bear or Howatt.
