    Finally yesterday my Christmas gift @Clint made to me arrived, was 4 month waiting and fearing the worst that the package was lost, I inquired the Customs and local post office without luck. I had a similar experience with the Guava Spring Breaker Peter Recuas gift. Well long story short, the Bocote Conus is in my hands !!!
    Thank you so much @Clint, a great present, gorgeous wood and a fine build, he also added a very nice small figurine to stand on my desk

      First of all, let me do a bit of rant:
      Customs are amongst the worst, worthless and useless institutions/services in the World...

      Now that I've got it out of my chest, SWEET, SWEET Conus you've received, Maestro!!
      And the mini Conus is just great too!! EXCELLENT presents!!
      By the way, very glad to see that you're in shape, my friend!! May we watch your AMAZING videos for years to come!!
      Un abrazo...

      I agree your rant about Customs, I'm sure the package was sleeping there ... yes the bocote is very nice, much more where I live, no trees at all LOL! and the shape @Clint gave it is super comfy ... videos ? how about some shared videos :confused: I am prepared as soon the virus leave (open the borders) to fly over there hahaha, remember my ancestry LOL!
      Otro Abrazo maestro Q;

      Sir, if that day arrives ....
      You know my arms will be open to receive you, with great joy!!!
      You're very respected and a great influence for me (and for many people on the slingshot hobby, I'm sure) Let's hope these stupid times be over soon...
      All the best to you and yours!!
