    Wooden compound bows?

    Is it just me - or are there other compounders out there, who would like a wooden compound bow?

    I am just thinking that maybe there are compounders that would like to go the more traditional way - and shoot compound barebow - with a wooden compound bow.

    I remember from my early years in archery, I saw magazines with wooden compound bows and admired them. I think Golden Eagle was one of them.

    But today? I don't know - but maybe the trend is going against compound, recurve barebow and longbows - leaving olympic recurve becomming a smaller group?

    Hehe - I am only interested to see if there are some people out there who would like to have a wooden compound. The option you suggest is obvious, because today there are only compound made with metal risers.

    I shoot Compound barebow, I love the idea of a wooden bow as long as the performance is still there. I know it can be done and in a beautiful way as one of our club has made one and it is outstanding!
