WTT3 bow photos and FD curves (images on page 3)

Postby jwillis » Wed Apr 29, 2009 8:52 am

I'm working on these in the upcoming evenings until they are all finished...first, I'm combining the three photos of each bow. I'll post the photos first, then I'll enter the data, generate the curves, and insert them into the same thread. This is really slow so thanks in advance for your patience. You are going to like these because I can already tell that the pictures alone show why the fastest bows are faster! :D Jim

VERY COOL Jim :D
That was a hell of an idea to go this extra mile.I thought you were crazy at the time you mentioned it a week before the event and knew it would take some time to do 35 bows. and it did take us into late friday night but now Im so glad you suggested it. You get my standing ovation for all the extra effort beyond WTT III.

:D
People used to say that I'd never amount to much but I can always say Ive served as a bad example!

I've got nine of the composite photos built, and the Excel file for the data sheet/FD curve is tweaked into a template. It includes Draw weight data, SE, SE/PDF. Since we also collected arrow speeds, I wrote formulas so we can see KE, and Dynamic Efficiency! :ugeek: Now that the template is built I can crank out the charts. Jim
