Could well have been great in many, if not all, other respects. My first
Really Good Bow was in fact a great Damon-Howatt recurve. It delaminated
after 20+ years of use -- starting at the lower tip, which got closed in
a car door; it wasn't the bow's fault, but mine. I shortened it to remove
the delaminated part, and a corresponding amount on the upper limb, and
re-tillered it, but it just wasn't the same afterward.
