I shot a few arrows out of it tonight and for a 45# @27” bow it seems pretty quick. I need to figure what spine shaft I’m going to need but so far so good.

Here’s the bow at full draw. I still have a little tuning to do but it’s shooting pretty good and I have a point on of 20 yards which is what I was trying for.
