Up to him if he wants to send a bow, I'll gladly welcome JD the invite to WTT III. As far as Im concerned he doesnt have to prove anything to me though. If it is a 200Fps bow @ 10gpp I say good for him Im more than happy for him. If not , theres alot of guys out there gonna make him eat a bunch of crow.

Good point! Jim

that's funny Gino! i used that broadhead to the back of the bow on my hunting set up so i didn't freak out and over draw my bow...it's definately a positive draw stop, but it puts dents in you overlays... :D

what kind of release is that on the shooting machine Ken?

i'm wondering if i could simulate it using a back tension rope release and that broadhead positive draw stop ...

Yeah its a fletchunter, he had to grind a hole in the opposite side of the trigger so a screw could go through to work as a push trigger instead of a pull trigger. It works really nice.

YUP, what mark said :D

Kirk,
I think that setup for testing would work just fine.
People used to say that I'd never amount to much but I can always say Ive served as a bad example!

probably 5 or six at least Jim, not counting my back tension rope releases...those BT releases are a trip to learn how to use too....you learn real quick to draw low then raise it up to anchor....those things go off when THEY want to :o :o darn near broke my nose a couple times in training...but once you get the hang of them they are amazing....you ever hear of a 27X -300 Vegas round? THAT"S what a BT release can do for you....

but i'm actually thinking i've got an old cobra caliper style i could butcher up for a shooting machine...i'm working on a plan for one now...

I live in a 170-180 world myself with my own chrono and fingers. I must let the string go a little bit at a time.
