    First topic message reminder :

    Hello, does anyone know how long a steel prod can remain spawned? i know regular fiberglass prods generally can be drawn for 4 hours ( at least Barnett ones) before needing to rest for 30 minutes, i want to order a prod from Alchem, his prods have specs regarding brace heigt and power stroke but not draw time and i can't contact him or them, does anyone know?

    That is a great looking bow.

    I'm curious about recurving the tips of your prod. How hot did you have to get them to bend them?

    Just hot enought so they give a slight red glow, i used a blue Bernzomatic torch, id recommend a yellow one since i actually had a hard time getting it hot enough, or two blue ones.
