Late Entry

Postby Crooked Stic » Sun Jun 28, 2009 12:53 pm

I did not get a bow ready for the event. But I did get one put together and let Ken do some testing. Chrono and force draw curve. So I guess you could call it a late entry bow. Anyhoo this is the results Ken sent me. I will send the info to Willis and get him to put the draw curve in graph format.
Draw weight at 26 3/4" (28 AMO) 43.1# using 12 strand 8125 @ 6 3/4" brace
431gr arrow-(10gpp) 184,184,184 = 184fps avg
388gr arrow-(9gpp) 191,190,190, = 190.3fps avg
This is a 62 in. Bow. Black glass A-boo cores.
Using the hunting string with silencers and brass knocking point supplied @ 10gpp = 179fps avg and 9gpp = 185fps avg

Looks like a nice bow mike. Good speed too :) :) What's your taper on that .002?

BTW, mikes bows have very good shooting characteristics. That bow is really quiet and no shock to hand what so ever! When I checked the limbs, they seemed to be in perfect sinc with one another. Great job Mike! :)

BK .004 with a power lam and tip wedge.
Ken thanks.
I just got another one of this design out of the hotbox. Only thing is I had to make it purty with curly maple and dymondwood riser :D

I think one of the coolest things is seeing what the unbraced profile looks like, then being able to see the resulting braced and full draw profiles and resulting performance numbers, and also getting to shoot the bow to see how it behaves. After looking at all of these bows we're sharing, I'm getting better at predicting what the braced and full draw profiles will be and what kind of performance to expect. Very cool Mike. Jim

:D I pulled the pic and did the old photoshop flipparoo (my way of checking :) )

Mike....looking at full draw, I see the effect of the tip wedge, but I'd have never guessed there was a power lam in there. Have you done one with the PL and without the TW?

PS - Sorry about me & Kirk drawing on your tiller board there Ken :? One line is sasquatch, other line is mine :lol:

BK the power lam goes 2 in. past the fade. Maybe needs to be a little longer. Done one with tip wedges and no PL. Still playin with this stuff.

Thanks Jim. It looks better on paper than I thought it would.
