I have a CNC-driven fiberglass grinder whose only purpose is to MAKE
fiberglass recurved crossbow prods.
What overall draw length are you looking for? A lot of the aluminum
ones use 3" brace height + 7" power stroke for a 10" Overall Draw. I
use a 3" brace but prefer to cut for a 10" power stroke. What that
means is instead of drawing 86# @7" power stroke, you'd draw 60# @
10". The extra length is no extra drawing effort at all, but extra lbs
is. It depends on whether you're working from a historical design that
might look out of proportion with a longer draw. A lot of Iolo's stuff
used 12" overall draw, so it's not out of proportion to speak of if the
design works with it.
