      ++++ has he ever tried a 'siper' -- that medieval Turkish device for
      extending draw?

      He's had friends make him bows, which are
      > 40#, but his pull length takes them up to 50#.

      +++ a number of different horsebow designs will readily and
      consistently pull to 35" with little poundage shift. I have read
      that some Korean bows can pull most of their length, e.g. a 39" bow
      can pull 36" -- neat, and unstrung they are only a 1 foot diameter
      circle! Love to have one.
