Hi there fellow bowyer!

Nice to see some Irish bowyer here, there are't many, that's why I am very excited!
I have a scale up to 90 pounds, like this one: Image
I won't be selling it but I can borrow it to you if you want at a event to do some measuring and/or I can buy one for you on at german archery webshop, u would just need to pay the normal national shipping costs and I would ask my mom or dad just to put it into the next package they send.
We can also order some other stuff togehter to share the shipping so, it wouldn't be really much.
I can also have a look on the German ebay, I have an account there.

Send best greetings to a fellow boghdóir ;)


EDIT: really nice bows btw! Whats ur next event? like to come to Cork somewhen in the next weeks? We have some events around here...
