This one has a strip of bloodwood laminated at the handle area between the boo and the walnut lam that runs the length under the osage. Measured as it lies here it has an inch of deflex in the handle and 7 inches of reflex at the tips. Of course this will all change as tillering progresses, and hopefully one day it will be a bow. :-) This is a pic right out of the form, and after I ran it through the bandsaw.

braced about 5"

Full Draw

finished handle area, I am going to put some burgandy colored deerskin on it yet. And side profile just after shooting.
