    I like the profile of that bow, my favorite design R/D longbow, prefferrably under 60”

    Thank you!
    Shooting a Gold Tip 500 full length with a100gr brass insert and a '59 model Pearson Deadhead (150gr). I chronographed it Sunday afternoon and it was shooting a blistering 135 fps. LOL! However, it is the single quietest bow I've ever shot. Meat and Carpdaddy are witnesses to it's lack of speed and quietness. The 7 pt never moved or dropped any prior to the arrow hitting. It punched all the way through easily, even at that range. It was an awesome evening!

    I think now that I've scored with that beast, I'm going to get the recurve back out. With it being 72" long, it is unbelievable how many things I've hit with it, in and out of the tree!

    It was a blessing, not skill. You and Meat have seen me shoot so you know what I'm saying is the truth! LOL!
    Yeah, I qualify as a "blind hog"! Ha!
