I hoped the machine could add a bit to get them in the 180s like what I measured over here. ;) But so I know my hand release seems not to be too bad :D and my arrows probably slightly too light when doing my tests here (did not weigh them too meticulously, I must admit)
When I see this long list I figure you had a lot of work to do today. I am drinking coffee, you may still be drinking some beers an be really tired - seven hours difference I guess.
Conclusion: There is still a noticeable difference between what an all natural material bow can do and the numbers that can be done with modern materials. I missed badger in the list - isn´t he there, I guess he would have done some fps more in favour of the reputation of the wooden sticks.... :) We will have to keep on working to see wether limits are already reached or there are still some fps left to be made when we put wood and grass together.
Thank you for your great work and keep on having a good time altogether!

Hanno, those are the most beautiful boo-backed creations I have ever seen...amazing. You guys would have to see the attention to detail on these bows...multiple layer horn tip overlays, inlaid bone arrow strike plate, composite boo/osage or boo/ipe core lam, boo backed and boo belly. Very refined tips and riser sculpting. No hand shock. Who cares about speed when they look this good? Jim

E

Yes, that was the impressive thing about the Centaur. It is a hunting class bow with durable tips and comfortable riser. Jim

You should have seen the look on TJ's mother's face when she was watching his bows shoot. She was very proud. I almost cried it was so touching. When TJ predicted before the event that "this high school builder would kick most production bowyer's asses," he wasn't kidding. Jim

Ah men to that!! And now their mine! :mrgreen: They truly are works of art. Im very lucky to have them and want to thank Hanno for telling me to "just keep them for causing to much red tape to send them internationally" When I first read that I about melted right here. They are now among my favorites on my personal bow rack. I love shooting them and cant wait till my next turkey season. This next round them birds better be shaking as I'll have had more time to shoot the bows:D

No CHIT!! His bow that he had in the hot rod class flat smokes and its a bow that can very easily be shot accurately at a lower brace like we tested. No ones got anything on this young man anymore. Im trying to work something out to "buy" TJ from his mom. Were working out the details in the contract. OH, and uhh,,, "patent pending" on that :lol: . (inside joke)

Another thing about the bows that Dan Steenhoek submitted,,,, You all remember after WTT II hearing people talking about now having to be "thinking outside the box" to get things higher. Now this guy took the box, smashed it, cut it up, stomped on the pieces and then burned it!!! I aint kidding people. This is another guy that is the "real deal" here. Im already thinking about how I can use some of his building tech and incorporating it into my design. ;)

i just realized that the event was this past weekend so i had to come look....... very impressive numbers all around.

that centaur is a performance monster!

ken- dang it man....... i bet you could have changed the air currents in the party barn and hit the 200 mark........ or had FD rip one behind the bow at the shot to put it over the 210 mark :lol: :twisted: .........


TJ- your performance numbers are the most impressive to me........ all glass and damn near 200fps!!!!!!! very very well done buddy!!!!!



E and jim, congrats on the purdy awards!!!!!!!! you guys build some impressive bows!!!! :mrgreen:

Yes sir. Dan is a thinker. Darn nice guy too.

I'd be lying if I wasn't thinking how a couple of his ideas might make my design a little quicker too. Good stuff. Good weekend!

Yup, Very impressive numbers! Jim at Centaur, Dan Steenhoek, kirkll, TJ, Ernie, KCbrown, Kenro, bkinwisconsin and for that matter, all of the rest of you are making bow that are faster than anything that I have ever produced. Congrats to all of you. Who needs a job? :lol:
