    Tillering can be a bit tricky at times especially with a stave like this.
    What sort of distance are you expecting to achieve Will?

    That looks ace. Osage?

    Not sure - Ian Coote made a bow this draw weight that hit 258 yards over in NZ a week ago or so, but I'm nowhere near his level of ability, and this bow took a solid 2" set from my hesitation on the tiller. I'd be over the moon if I could reach 240 with a Livery.

    And what grain weight will your arrow be?

    A Livery is 980 grains, and a Standard is 800 grains. I'll probably put some 1700 grain 1/4lb arrows through it once it's settled from the Liverys.
