Out of curiosity I piked this bow down to 54" and 54@26. I draw 26" and with 9gpp on the dot I was getting anywhere from 185-187fps finger release. No it is not a kennym design. I drew this design shooting for a shorter bow and I am very happy with how it turned out. I've made them from 54-60" and all lengths shoot great and all chrono(for me) in the upper 180s at 9 gpp. I had a guy with a true 28" draw chrono a 56" for me and we got 195-197 for 9 gpp and mid 180s(I think) at 10gpp. Can't remember for sure on the 10gpp tho

Those are exceptional numbers for a 26" draw bro..... Nicely done! :D

Only archers are fool enough to want to make a composite with natural materials and man made materials, and then bend it repeatedly...
