So my cousins girlfriends father supposedly made these years ago. He was not a bowyer, he apparently made pool cues. Anyway, he has long since past and his girlfriend was going to throw these in the trash! crazy Luckily, my cousin knows I'm an archer and asked me if I wanted them. DAH! They are really nice, both 70" long. I ordered a couple strings for them yesterday. I was going to make the strings but for a couple bucks, it's not worth the time. I have no idea of draw length or weight so I guess I'll figure that out when I get the strings. Obviously they are not marked. My cousin said they are hand made I guess it's possible but they look like factory to me. One has a diamond on it saying "The Rogers Bow" but that's it, no other markings. Regardless, they are beautiful bows and didn't cost me a dime! grin

swampgas chili and schmidt beer makes for a deadly combo

Good find! I got a bunch of bows that a school threw out after discontinuing archery in school.
If those are hand made, he was darn good!


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???
