Back in 2008 I started making my first boardcuts from maple. They were rather squarish and large frames with a length of 7 1/2". I recently modified an old maple traditional cut to make it more comfortable. The handle was reshaped and made offset, the forks grooved for TTF, notches for finger and thumb, the throat was opened up a tiny bit, and fork width narrowed a little. I painted it black and added TB-Red tubes. Plastic pll-ties are used for fastening. Switching between TB-Red and the lighter TB-Yellow bands is fast with the ties.

Frame length = 6 3/8"
Width = 4 3/8"
Between forks = 2 1/2"

TB-Red tubes --- 32" draw --- ear anchor point --- 210 fps with 3/8" steel --- 220 fps with 5/16" steel

Cheers,
Northerner

Good Mod.

I keep all the old cattys I made unless they are 100% no good for any mod or shooting. I have remodeled some with awesome results. Just yesterday I recut and started rounding the edges of one of my earliest cattys. Will post soon to encourage others to hang onto neglected cattys for possible modifications.
