    This year at Estrella War (SCA event) in Az I picked up a new (first) crossbow from New World Arbalest. Its a sweet little bow but I also picked up a new prod from Elk Ridge Archery. Its a 93lb @ 12in beautifully laminated prod. The entire combination is a really nice looking (and shooting) setup.

    The only thing I noticed is while they had a large number of prods and several crossbows at there tent they don't list any on their site so you may have to contact them about what prods they have or can make

    Joe here has amazing laminated prods for crossbows. I see him when I go to the SCA events.
    I can't find his prods on this website, but, I am sure that Joe could fill you in on the deets.
    He does different woods on the outside that are very beautiful.

    When
    I was in AZ at Estrella a couple weeks ago, one nice young man bought a
    Finnish bow from me, then, went down to Joe's shop, bought a lovely
    prod, and came back and bribed me to tie that prod on! It took 2
    bottles of hard cider, and a lovely cup from the potter down the way...
    I'm not easy!

    So, I cut off the prod that I had so carefully
    tied not that long ago, and had to rig Joe's prod in there. His prod is
    not just skinnier, but longer, and made to have a slight degree of
    angle. I had to go to Joe's shop, (oh my gosh, walk two "blocks"!)
    measure that angle, and come back. I then had to make a little block of
    leather to secure the prod in the socket, and also, a tiny "ramp" in
    the socket, under the prod, to give it that correct 1/8th inch angle.
    I have some photos I can put up soon, haven't 'unpacked' the camera yet!
    Anyway,
    Joe's prods are just lovely, and I just received an email from that
    nice young man, telling me it shoots very nicely, thank you!

    Basilisk120! YOU are the nice young man who bought the bow from me, that I tied the new prod onto!

    Lol! Well, good to 'see' you!

    Best!

    Fancy running into you here, Lightly. And I was going to let you know about this cool new site I found but you apparently beat me too it. Laminate Prod retailer Icon_biggrin
    So once again thanks for the great customer service and putting the new prod in my new crossbow. It really is a good combination.
