    I searched Google and could not find a single pic of a compund bow with a polished out riser. Found a pic of somebody who paint stripped one to re-paint but not polished out.

    I know many like the camo thing (not me). I have a Screaming Eagle and was thinking of polishing the aluminium riser to a mirror finish since it's used for target shooting only. The limbs are solid black from the factory. I inherited it from my Grandfather. I had put a lot of money into it to bring it into this century as far as sights, stabilizer, silencer, a rest blah blah but was thinking of taking it to another level of kick ass'ness.

    I will put up some pics of what I'm talking about when I get home.

    Thanks. I still haven't found a pic of even a chromed bow. Closest I found was some guy in Africa selling a Matthew chromed bow but no pics.

    Not being able to find a pic yet, makes me want to poilsih it even more.

    opps I lied, found a chrome one.
