Just saw that there's a nice looking Heritage over on eBay for the next 5 days.  I think it was 68" and #52@30".  Black back & white belly. 4 lams of Bamboo in between. If you've been looking for one, here's your chance. Current bid price is $202 (okay, it's me), but you can buy it outright for $350. If it didn't have white glass, I already would have.

Clovis.... does that bow have a cut out shelf on it???...I looked at it, it looks like a knuckle shelf bow in the pictures...Sure looks like it's about what I'm looking for, but I don't want to shoot off of my knuckle!!... Take Care... Jim

Bob..spray paint is really cheap. ( unless you are trying to buy touch up paint from the mfr to fix kitchen cabinets i just installed...then it is $30 per can).

Well, maybe just a little. Hope you're enjoying it.  I do regret shooting an arrow through the lower limb of my other one (68", #50) when it was hanging on the rack in the basement and I was practicing left handed with another bow. I wrapped it up with reinforced packing tape though and it shoots just fine.

Harpman, I wouldn't worry about shooting off the knuckle, especially with one of JD's bows. His bows are so well balanced, you'll never feel the fletch. The only time I've cut my knuckle was with bows with shelves. I shoot a 90+ year old Osage shelfless bow without even a string nock. Never felt the fletch with this bow. If pucker factor prevails, add a simple leather wedge as a locator(shelf.) I'd suggest lighter spined arrows and shooting cock feather in.

I think perfecting your arrows, especially the leading edge of the one feather that might cut you, will end all worries.

All my bows are cut so low i am essentially shooting off my hand. I can tell, really quick, if i have a rough edged feather.

Clovis, Shot the hell out of that Heritage and enjoyed it immensely then passed it on to my nephew in Oregon where it is once again being enjoyed.  Good bow.

That bow spent time at my house. It’s a nice one. If you’re thinking about it - pull the trigger you won’t be disappointed!

It met the reserve price he had for it.

So tempting, but I've got bows I need to sell, not buy. [biggrin]

Had your chance.  Shoots just as sweet as it looks and I don't notice the white glass at all. Wasn't sure I would like the Gen 2 grip, but it fits my hand perfectly.  Best $300 I've spent in a very long time.

What's the difference between a generation 2 and first generation (if that's what it's called) grip?

James can probably give you the details, but the Gen 2 (my term) grip (right pic) is wider and rounder and feels like it fills my palm a bit more than the grip on my other (Gen 1) Heritage (left pic).

The neatest thing in my opinion is this bow can be shot right or left handed.😜

Super-regret selling my HII. At the time I didn't have a choice and got a good dollar for it. $300 is a sweet deal!
