But then, for half the dough for a new bow, the old girl would be sportin new limbs and shooting harder than ever, probablly with less poundage, which even an aging jarhead's shoulder would apprecite. I know I wish that I'd taken better care of my shoulder when I was 40!
    This is called a Warf, not sure what a Star Trek character has to do with converting a compound to a recurve, apperntly the guy who started doing this had big boxer ( dog, not a prizefighter) named Warf and thats what Bob called his conversions.

    As I said earlier I liked the idea of a Frankencurve, and when I followed Magnus777's link to the Pirates of Archery thread and saw a Lynx warf, I took another look at the old Lynx Magnum my neighbor had given me, after a rat had chewed a hole into his plastic case and did what rats do, which left a lot of corrosion behind, especially on the cams? or wheels....

    So I tore it down and striped the riser of the old black and brown camo paint job, and am now looking for a set of ILF limbs. Gonna give thise a try, so Thanks Sledge for directing me to another way to enjoy this wonderfull sport we call archery.
