Jim that is awesome. You put alot of work into that. Very much appreciated. Alot of information to soak in. I am going to have to get my hands on some carbon and give it a go.

Since I couldn't make WTT III, it was great to see all the pics of the bows and the profiles.

I've been wondering how long it would take for someone to notice this. ;) Look how much energy it is storing early in the draw.

Brock, that's why I wanted to do this...to give the bowyers who couldn't attend the opportunity to see the profiles.

You did that and then some Jim!!

Thanks for all your hard work. You've given us a great deal of the best study material I've seen.

Ken sent me the draw force numbers for his Reaper carbon hotrod bow, so I updated that chart on page 3. Jim

Thanks Jim!!! and everybody, this is awesome. I think you have ruined me, all I wanted to do when I started this crazyness was shoot a moose with a sharp stick. Now I have to think like an evil scientist and huddle in my dark lab doing millions of esoteric calculations to squeeze that last fps out of my diabolical inventions.ARGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!! Ain't it fun!! :shock: :roll: :D Bob

Thanks for the info. I would say that we are gettin this bow stuff figured out. It is gonna be interesting to see some of those numbers topped next year. I think it will happen though.

The efficiency on some of these bows is so high that I would fully expect and not feel insulted if they are challenged. I remember out and out being called a liar when I reported and efficiency of 86% on a bow. I just can't see long bows or R/d bows getting much better than this last batch. The way it is going 2 or 3 more walk the talks and it will probably have outlived it's usefullness. Looks like the peak is very near. Steve
