    Default Mini Martin Tigress Frankenbow

    Anyone here ever make up a mini Martin Tigress? I am in the process of putting together a 13" limb nitrous "A" with mini mods and shoot through for my granddaughter. I will let you know how the bow spec's out when I am done. The 5 inches of draw length adjustment and 15 lbs of draw weight adjustment will all help. As far as limbs, they have been modified...we will see the end results soon. Pics when finished.

    One of the guys that where around when I first joined had a Leopard with Nitrous A cams, that he built for his grandson. RogerSR went back to traditional, can find him over on TradTalk. I can't remember if it was a shoot-thru or not, I'd think with that short ATA the string angle would be pretty sharp with a cable guard version. Hurry up with those pics Jim!!

    While awaiting strings from Hutch or his oldest hatchling daughter, I have an interesting observation. The limb angle appears to be more like Scepter's than Slayr's, and the brace is gonna be short....but great! 11 year old's need as much powerstroke in their bow as can be made.

    Coolest thing is I put mini modules on it....and it was exactly her draw length! Thank you Barry, Hutch, Hutchett, and also unnamed Hutchett Jr. (Slingmaker), and many others. Everything has worked to perfection so far on it. I have not measured the draw length but I believe the minimum setting would be 20" and the Max 23. Haven't checked draw weight either but she can barely pull it back on max so have room to grow. I think max is around 25 lbs but will check it soon. ATA is 34.25...perfect. And now for the brace...4.5 inches!!!! Long powerstroke for a young girl!!! She is beaming.

    Wow! That is a low brace height, are the vanes going to clear the rest? Those 13"
    limbs sure brought the brace height down. As you say, a long power stroke for her draw length.
    Beautifull riser, is that Colorado Copper?
