TLJ thanks for posting
That is gorgeous...
Just looks like a shooter!
Is that a Myrtle riser?

I am not familiar his Viper, was that a model series, or just your bows' name?
Backset?

Joe, Why was it called a Viper? Was there a Viper model or just the name of this bow?

Not sure if it is a model or just the name of the bow.  It has four bamboo laminations under brown glass with a Myrtle handle. slight back-set of about 3/4" and very narrow tips of less than 3/8" and 1" at fade outs, 64# @ 28".  Really shoots smooth and no hand shock.

That bow looks like my Shultz Cougar model. Handle is also myrtle and bamboo limbs. Very narrow.

Tox, I would like to get one of John's yew bows, your's looks sweet.  He really has narrow tips/limbs and the tiller is spot on making a fine smooth shooting bow.  Viper was made back in the mid 1980's and the original owner had taken super nice care of the bow, almost new condition.

I was the original over of "Viper". It is the name I requested be put on the bow. John wasn't too crazy about naming his bows but I talked him into it. If I remember correctly it would have been built about 1988... ish. Nice bow. The limb tips are more narrow than any other longbow I've ever seen.

Cool now, TLJ. As we know "Viper"'is the name requested by the customer. This is a "Trophy Hunter" model. The serial number should begin with a T. Also this model was built with four laminations of bamboo. The "Hunter" model had three bamboo lams, while the "Cougar" was made from yew.

Mike, I will check the serial number on Monday and verify the T is there.  The bow has such delicate tips and narrow limbs, these really make for a nice shooting bow.  I have one of Mr. Schulz's Parting Shot longbows, a really work of art.  I have two David Miller all bamboo longbows and you can see he was trained by Mr. Schulz.
