RD Nearly There

The braced and full draw shape is much better now.
I'm not saying it's right as I may have too much bend near the grip, the left tip doesn't straighten and amid portion of the left limb has lost some reflex.
I'm easing off the right limb a whisker near the grip (one brick out from the centre) and I'm heat treating that left mid limb to restore the reflex and to hopefully stiffen it a tad whilst easing off the tip.
On the FD pic it's pulled to about 70# at just over 26"... it was an act of blind faith/optimism, and I made sure I was pulling the rope from well back!
Once it's finally finished I'll post it on Primitive Archer for an opinion from those who make RD bows.
