    Looks excellent. The side plate and inlet work look great on them.

    I see you had the same problem of the Alchem prod cutting your string. Effective way of handling it.

    Thanks.

    Yes, the original string was Alchem and it did that strange thing of somehow inverting the bow i.e. the string ended up in front of the stock after firing it's 6th shot!! Pulling it back, next shot it snapped at one of the bow loops. Made that one myself a little shorter with more cords and has worked fine (you just know it'll snap now I've written that Wink

    Very nice, Gui! Ambitious for a first go. Love the brass track. I have two weapons using the same Alchem prod as yours, pretty similar mechanically except one has the brass track and one has polished oak. The brass gets you a big speed boost. It's been quiet on the forum this summer, it's nice to meet a new member and see some great new work.
