Who's attempting to Break 200?

Postby Hornseeker » Mon Oct 13, 2008 1:56 pm

Just curious, as "just building a bow" for the event aint gonna cut that cheese... its going to take some serious messing around and probably several bows built before you even get close to 193...let alone 200...

Just curious. I think I'll probably build 3 or 4 bows and tweak each for speed and see what happens... I'd like to get 195...

Anyone going full out trying to break the record??? How about you Ken?

By the way...my plan is to build a sound riser... then... just start experimenting with my limbs. I wont change forms, only layup. I can vary reflex by over 1 1/2 inches with my form and throw out infinite combos of wedge lengths (tipp and butt) and tapers and etc... and etc.... Then the "throw away" limbs can be made into normal bows!

i'll be doing some red line stuff.....but with the bar at 200 a guy could end up with a hell of a bone pile.... i've got a few things in the works that could be entertaining, if nothing else....i just might have you guys looking over your shoulder a bit..... but who knows really untill the numbers flash up there huh?

No balls, No Glory! i'll give er me best shot mate!

hopefully i'll have that chrono back in the shop and my shooting machine up and running by then TJ. It's pulling a 45 pound bow just fine, but i haven't got a heavy poundage bow on it yet....... i'll run her through the paces when she gets here and let you know... Kirk

Ken... you "barely" count...cause you were ALREADY there!!! Just kiddin of course. But...I think/hope you are shooting for at least 202...

TJ...I have my second limb in the cooker right now with that blemished carbon... I'll grind them in the next day or two and strap them to a riser and see what happens. I made them double carbons... so it will be a full on test of this material. I have a feeling its going to be fine... the limb that is out of the form feels great when I flex it...

Kirk...cant wait to see what you got cookin. I think that reel will hold whatever you want it too...some of them big fish can put out more than 60# of pull!! :D

Good Luck All!!

only 200????? so does this mean we have changed the rules to 11gr/lb? ;) :lol:
