Re: yumi's yumi
- I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to get a payment to Yumi for
a yumi. I've been talking with Kintarou since March, I believe about
buying one and now, around the time everyone's heading to Pennsic, I
have the money saved up for it. I believe my request for one was
submitted and if I have a money order ready, I can buy one.
Well, timing of work and other mundane things keeps me from attending
Pennsic this year (was planning on going Aug 17-19), again (after 8
years of living in Pittsburgh... *grumble*). I know there are no day-
passes. Is there any way that I may be able to get a payment to Yumi
and get a bow? Even if I meet someone at the Troll and do the
exchange there this or next Saturday, I would be so eternally
grateful. I've been following the postings of photos of the archery
demonstration and the product and have been getting more and more
excited at getting one.

kyujustsu no yumi and the next day in camp as he was learning to draw
it ,it snaped like a dry stick. some people will say that Mokurai
must have been doing something wrong for that to happen but this is
not so. Mokurais draw was done the right way . also know that he took
the bow back to yumi and after 1 year of trying to fix it yumi sold
him a new bow that was better than the frist . the cost of the new
bow was only the defrence in the price.

and it works very well but in looking at it you can see that his work
has come along way and he is makeing much better kyujustsu no yumi
today.it is likly that I will buy my next bow from yumi.
