    Most of my stuff is store bought but I modify it all:
    Vertical wire on my Sword sights.
    Fast 4 quivers that hold 6.
    Powdercoated Peeps.
    Stainless fasteners.
    Little mods like that.

    Other than making my own arrows, most of my archery gear is pretty much off the shelf. I do make a lot of other outdoor gear, like my bow sling ( still no coment from any of you about that ) bow cases, gear bags, sight covers, saddlebags for my mountain bike, stuff like that. It's been a while since I've posted a pic of the mountain bike so take a look at the saddlebags, it has 2500 cu in of storage capisity, and compression straps across each compartment.

    i built my own string jig and i put all my arrows together, i've built some sts's. i changed my trg to a cable slide on the onza 3, it was one of the early risers so i had to build a sts bracket for it, turned out good if i do say so myself .
