The thing is, even the people who work in big dealer shops in the Midwest seem to very rarely see one circulating in the wild for sale, and seem to have pretty "meh" opinions on the playability vs the time/effort/profit motive to try to track one down.
Somebody who works at Shar says he actually has a little workshop in Michigan somewhere and actively makes bows as an amateur pursuit, but I can't seem to find any resources online that would tell someone how to get in touch with him or arrange a loan.
Is there anyone on here, dealer, collector, or otherwise, who is aware of how I can make this happen?
