Dean is an old "paint and body" man for many years. Dean did tell me that living in Nixa, Missouri he has over the many years, "picked the brains" of those Black Widow boys just a bit. The limbs are comprised of black glass limbs and laminate bamboo core, glass overlays on the tips for fast flight bowstring.The bowstring delivered with the bow was 14 strand Fast Flight.I was told not to leave my bow in the car during the summer months. If I have to leave a bow in the truck for some reason.... I don't know about compounds, but why take chances? My buddy and I went scouting on a beautiful,cool Sept.The heat of the summer and then cold air from the AC, this hot, cold, hot, cold change in temps "WILL" make the limbs brittle. morning and tho I carried my bow he left his in the truck.
I do what feels right to me and make the bows I feel good about making.Traditional archery is who we are, not just what we do. It's simple and eloquent, hand crafted products, not machine produced, duplicated over and over, each looking and feeling exactly like all the others.Primitive and traditional products are truly one-of-a-kind custom pieces of functional artwork. They can get so hot the glue goes liquid and they delaminate. Not even the change of temp but the heat will damage them.As a specialist’s bow, the Mamba is fast, provides a larger hunting zone, with accomplished archers as large as fifty yards, and hits like a Mack truck.
