Phoenix project finally done

After working on the Phoenix now and then since winter it is finally done.
I tried to make it resemble a old wolverine kinda paint look with a Matt clear coat over all camo. She's got an awesome boo crisp boo trigger ,Nikon p-3 with weaver 6 screw med. Scope rings,shortened scope mount,vixen master string (from the land of rocks) foamed rail .dr stirrup bumpers ,and excalibur limb silencers.
So far the bow shoots a bullseye 15 yards first shot outta the bench no sight in yet. Lol.
I was trying to make it as quiet as possible for my backyard sneaks. And what surprised me the most is just how quiet it is.(tooonk) instead af("PANK").Even with the silencer overkill were at 283 fps with a heavy arra. I hope she's lucky for me l gotta good feeling about her.

Man, that’s a great paint job!

If you have a mind to, I and a bunch of other folks would enjoy seeing a “How-to” on how you painted that.

That is a beauty and bullet proof to boot.
Love that camo job and color pallet.

Beauty bow!
A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of harvest is at hand.

Looks good! I can't tell from the pictures, do you have anything between the stirrup and the rail? A thin rubber isolator works wonder for noise and vibration reduction.
