Designing My PLX (help) - David S.

Help me pick my woods. I know I want a PLX T/D, I know I want 62" and beavertail, I know I want all black tips and overlays, no red. What woods? Having a hard time mentally picturing all the possible combo's. Gonna order it Mon. or Tuesday.

Ok, I'll toss one out there. Figured curly maple riser, cross grain graybark belly, gray rat snakeskins back. I've about decided when you cut the red out, lighter colored riser woods look better with the black glass. I like them all though!

Zircote riser with a tight smallish figured Myrtle (More action for the narrow limb) . Take your time on this one . Cheers , dangit still no Stanley !

Andy Man, I just sold my 64" T/D that was exactly like yours. Going down a couple inches in length and up a few pounds in draw weight. Beautiful combo. For some reason I just don't care for the red in them tho.

BW bows seem to look good in just about any combo. My PLX is Curly Anegre which I've not seen before. That's one reason I picked it. Rather unique I guess. Limbs are a lighter brown with a little darker riser.
