Here is wonderful example of the work of the old time bowyer's!!! Black glass both back and belly, features a Myrtle riser-bamboo limb core!!!!!
68"56#@28" I had forgotten this one, I also thought it had a dull finish, wrong it has a very good finish!!!! Also note, the character, I received the bow from, had presence of mind, to place a darker color circle of leather where the arrow strikes the shelf!!!
HE SAID IT REMINDED HIM TO:
..(PICK A SPOT!!!!!!!!!!)

P.S. it is raining cats and dogs preventing me from going outside to use natural light to take these pictures!!!

I am not sure, the name on the bow is
Lyle something Kyler? I tried to blow up a couple pictures to answer the question!!! I will look when I return home tomorrow in the am!!!

That was rob sihlanicks old bow I believe. He had this schulz, a pete George, and a miller. I picked up the miller and pete and was very tempted by this one. It could’ve been a different one too...I just remember a black glass tembo with very similar specs.

I have one almost identical.  It is a shooter and my backup to the Sunset Hill right now.
