Anyways, I was leaning towards them but this guy's dad makes these bows and showed me a few pics and put me in touch with him so thought that would be a cool thing too. I just can't find any info about his company. I'll give him a call tomorrow and see how that goes. Thanks guys.

Anyone shoot one of his bows? I believe he's in AZ. His son is up here in MT and put me in contact with him. I'm getting ready to buy my first recurve or longbow. Not sure which one yet. Been compound since I started but I've had the itch for awhile to at least have one to shoot. Was originally looking at a Toelke but since I have an in with this guy I may go that route. Any of you guys have any experience with his bows? Thanks

I owned one. It was excellent.
My only advice is that trad bows in my experience are like skate (hockey) shopping. You can predetermine all you want what you want to buy, but unfortunately you don't get to choose a skate or a bow from a catalogue or a web page. You HAVE to "try them on." Sure, a guy can get lucky, but if you don't have the right fit you will be fighting it to some degree the entire time you own it. If you get the right fit it is the most natural thing in the world. Good luck with your quest.
Ya, I really don't even know what I want...or should want! It's all totally new to me. Just always had a fascination with them. I saw a guy shooting one at the range about a year ago and I couldn't take my eye off his bow. I must have been obvious cause he says " Um do you want to shoot it?" Hell ya I said. It was a toelke whip. Such a cool bow.
I've never heard of him but that doesn't mean his bows aren't excellent. As stated above, the best thing to do is to shoot as many different bows as you can to determine what you like. I would recommend finding a traditional 3d shoot, most guys will let you shoot their bows.
He lives in Dewey, Arizona. He makes beautiful bows, Eagles Flight. How's can flat out shoot!! The grips are great, bow is well balanced. I shot one for a while and really liked it. Beautiful lines in the riser, limbs are well made and tips are small for increased speed. I'd buy another one in a heart beat!!!
Great Stuff. Thanks Anthony
