tillered into the 21/2"mounting area to allow that to work also, feels a lot
better still has plenty of draw strength, waiting for nocks to dry so i can string
it up and try it tomorrow. I think this bow will end up kind of a model
prototype for the next one as everything is experimental. How do most cock the bow?
I will be using a cocking stick for the time being, till I perfect some kind
of lever. The string will be sliding across the top of the stock so I am
making an arrow slot that puts the string level with nock height, Is this normal?
