    I just finished this one today, it still needs a string, i have a paracord one but ill make a hemp string soon, the prod is a 150 Barnett veloci-speed covered in leatherbrace it at 3" and it will have a 7.5" power stroke, i think a Barnett prod should be braced at 3.5 or 4 and have a 9.5" powerstroke so my setup should increase the life of my prod at the expense of power and speed ofcourse, the stirrup is 1'' by 3/16" heated and bended steel, and the stock is alder with mahogany stain sealed and laquered.

    Nice, it looks like a Padre Island design but with a skane lock. Interesting.
