Wow, thats cool. judging by how well kirks bows feel to shoot and no feeling of handshock Id be curious to see what my double carbon looks like slowed down. :shock:
People used to say that I'd never amount to much but I can always say Ive served as a bad example!

That's really neat. Are there more vids available Kirk? I want to see what some of the longbows look like. That string looks like a spagetti noodle.

go back and check out those german slow motion videos Nic posted on page 2 .... that will give you a good idea what limb timing being out of whack will do to a long bow....

as far as more LAS videos go, i'd have to check with Lee or Rob....

I can't see the videos. Maybe it's because I use a MAC.

Yeah, I just threw it on my photobucket page because sending to you directly wasn't working out. I don't even know what's in there ! :roll:

I have a CD full of videos of limbs, paradox shots, releases, arrows coming off the shelf, you name it! If I get a chance any time soon I'll see if I can create a separate album and start loading the stuff into it. I know Rob wanted to start putting some of it on Youtube but I don't think that has happened yet.

The way your bow feels on the shot I expected much less residual movement in your limbs Kirk.

i can't wait to see the difference in these take down models i got going... these are an 004 taper where the first ones i built were running 005. the reason you are not feeling anything in the hand is primarily due to the preload being behind the grip. i was seeing more riser movement out of the metal risers than yours mike. :D

Here are the charts and pics. Let me know of possible errors...this took a considerable amount of organization, so I hope I got it all correct. Anyone who wants a copy of the excel workbook, just send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you the file to dissect. If there is no draw force data or curve shown for a bow, then we opted not to collect the data either by request of the bowyer or to avoid the bow taking set. I am SO glad that we went to this effort. The pics and charts tell a lot of things! Enjoy. Jim
