What is your go to bow if you were shooting for a large sum of money?? Mine would have to be my recurve and carbon arrows, specifically carbon express 250s,, tipped with 125 grain field tips, 4 fletched, and my recurve of my own design.

I know sum of you wouldn't shoot for money, if that's the case what is your go to bow?

I don't compete but if I did it would be with my 66" Abbott longbow 56#@26" and 520-530 grain douglas fir arrows.

 That may change in a couple of weeks when my new Jet Leopard arrives. 66" 60#@26". Not sure of my arrow choice yet!

The same bow I shoot at Trad World and all the shoots I compete at. My 21 inch I.L.F. Dalaa, with 36lb Winex limbs set at 41 lbs, and G.T. 1535s with 100 grn points. I'll have to see what happens when I get my new High Sierra I ordered though!

My Wesley special that I acquired from Ric O'Shay.  No bow has ever felt so smooth on the draw or at the shot, nor looked so purty leaned against a tree.  [biggrin]

My wife and I will be making the trip and I'll also try to get my boys to go as well. Not sure they are up to it just yet, but we might give it a try. Will you be making the long trip this year.

My 1963 Bear Polar 66" long 45# and some of Braveheart's Surewoods.
That bow is a dead in the hand shooter with that big riser and short limbs!

But I figure the only archery tourney I can win with this TP, is if they'd let me use a .22 rifle!
