Awesome numbers guys! I didn't realize that it was happening this past weekend.

So who was nominated as video editor, and when do we get to see the shootin?

Did someone get pics of the bows?

I've got the Bow Test Data Sheet right here ;) ... The Centaur tested said it was 60" AMO on the bow, but we used a 62" string on it to achieve the 6-3/4" brace standard for our tests. I'm not sure what the actual string length was. It was a two-piece takedown hybrid, double carbon, black actionwood or Dymondwood riser (not sure which), 53.8#@28 AMO, 538 grain arrow...196, 196, 195...ave 195.7...487 grain arrow...206 fps. It shot very well. It had a finger groove style grip. I saw just a little bit of limb vibration during the testing on the machine and felt just a little bit of vibration when I shot the bow later. The tips were plenty big and durable-looking. It was vertically stable and did not flip-flop at all.

I took some photos of the bows (unbraced, braced, and full draw) during the weigh in and will post them as soon as I can get the FD curve data entered. That could take me a awhile to get posted. Jim

Hey Guys, I have to say that this was so frickin' amazing!!!!
I am very proud of my boy and the fact that you all have pulled him into your "family"! I can't thank you enough for the encouragement to TJ and helping him to see that he can do anything he wants to do...(you remember, mom's don't know anything ;) ) Anyway it does mean a lot to me that you are re-inforcing the importance of persistance and the value of trial and error. Enough gushing about TJ...

Thanks to all the builders that allowed a novice shooter like me to try out these beautiful, functional works of art!

Thanks to Ken and Lynn for their hospitality and for the warm welcome we all recieved!

I learned a lot from all these guys at WTT about just what TJ has goin' on out in his "man cave"....I'm hooked now so I had to join and put my self into the discussions...just don't laugh too much....I really don't know anything about this stuff!

Maybe I'll even try my hand at puttin' one together for next year's WTT ;) ....it might be fun to compete against TJ and I'll get the first patent in the family :lol: !

Oh yeah...Ken, we'll have to review our contract...I think I might be able to get a better price than what we discussed! :lol:
