Can we bring other bowyers bows to test

Postby Bmgarto » Sun Feb 28, 2010 9:47 pm

I live in Nixa MO and may be able to come to this event. I'm aroung 3 to 4 hours away, I won't have a bow of my own to submit yet but I was wondering if we could submit other bowyers bows to see how they compare. I have a Roy Hall Apache for instance that we takked about. It has equall 3" R/D. Someone said we should test this bow. If these can be entered can i just bring thim with me if I can come?

Yep. Bring anything at all you wanna test. It's actually good to get some production bows in the mix to get a good comparison for the garage ninny's bows

I agree. Bring that production bow and we'll give it a good test and take photos. Looking at the results from the last couple of years, it was nice to compare a few production bows...especially the really popular bows we tested like the ACS, Centaur, Trad tech risers and limbs, Hoyt ILF limbs, etc. It is really interesting to see if they "walk" their "talk."

And its not to "prove them wrong" or anything like that...heck.. I hate to say it, but I bet way over half of all bowyers have no idea how to run a decent chronograph test... heck...there are so many variables that many just dont think about...

Whats cool to me, is having the "production" bow shot off the same machine, through the same chrono, with the same type of string, same arrow weight per bow weight, etc... Put any bow in my hands and I can get the results I WANT on that little digital read out... put them all on the machine...game changes..

I am thinking about sending my Bonner bow... Danny isn't around anymore so he wont care!! :mrgreen: And I might win!
