    I did not know you were geezer on this site. About 15 years ago I got a German style crossbow with a 150lbs prod that still shoots great to this day. I'll most likely be bothering you again soon for another great bow and some bolts. Between you and Tod at Tod's Stuff my dream of owning and shooting medieval crossbows has come to life. I've always enjoyed letting other folks shoot these classics and passing on what bit of knowledge I have on the subject to interested parties.

    Yes, I try to keep a reasonably low profile here on Arbalist Guild. 
    The purpose here is to inform and share info about building crossbows, not advertise product.  Besides, I'm getting along in years and am not terribly interested in gettings stacks of orders.  What comes in from the website is enough for me.  In fact, I send some of the fancier stuff to my journeyman, Mary Ellen Burdwood Porter, at Swift Hound Bows.  Around here, she's known as Lightly.
