Just got finished giving some new flash to my old Slayr. I did the riser up in black and added a new set of string/cables and re tuned her. Whoever had the bow before me had a special string/cable set made that so they could squeeze a little more draw weight and length out of it. I took it back to spec on the string and then went a 1/4" short on the cables. Ended up with 1/2" less BH. Got her tuned up it and she's cooking! Can't wait to shoot a few through a chrono.:jam:

Awesome looking bow!! a few questions, what did you use to paint your riser, and how did you do it, id like to do the same to my other bow that i use for ground blinds...But sweet looking bow:cool:

All I used was cheap $1 a can gray primer and $1 a can flat black. I then finished it off with a satin automotive clear coat. Between the primer, paint, and clear coat there is 10 coats on her. All did to prep was to use orange/citrus cleaner and a Scotch Brite Pad. It went to bare metal on some spots and just factory primer on others. I made sure all the film dip camo came off.

Does look good
i would like to recommend to use and XIM bonding primer first after very fine 300 grit wet sand
then use the bombs on it
I prefer lacquer as it is a much tougher finish and no top coat is needed

Yeah I just happened to have the stuff already so I just did it up with that stuff. I think next spring I'm going to have it powder coated flat black, that should hold up for the life of the bow.

There is a small shop here were I'm at. I believe I can get it done for about $50.00 to $75.00 tops. I think Jim Posten on AT does powder coat work as well as others over there.

No problem. :) Another route could be to get it dipped. Check this guy out. http://www.o-hg.net/

Just for anyone that may be interested. I am set up to powdercoat anything
metal on your bow.
Cost for a riser in basic colors is $25 plus return shipping.
For metal flake, pearls, translucent etc.. cost is $25 plus the powder ($10-$15) plus return shipping.
Just FYI...

A little xtra $$ in the winter is always good.
Especially right around the time the K10's come out.:cool:
