    Is there any formula or idea of how many FPS you pick up per pound on a 550grn arrow from a recurve? I’m trying to get the most out of my Samick Sage for hunting.

    Having read several times the difference between non stretch strings seldom varies by more than 3-4 fps. You guys that have shot them a chronograph is that a fairly accurate rule of thumb? Jeffs post last week about strings got me to thinking about what would the difference be between an 8125g...

    Pulled out my little kodiak magnum. It’s the bow that got me started with recurves 4 years ago (gift from my barber and I promised him I would kill a deer with it) and I killed my first non compound deer with it that first year. It’s a 1973-75 model and 50lbs at 28”. My DL is about 28.5...

    Just interested in your opinions. With a 27 inch draw, and a 450 grain arrow, what poundage would you likely need to be shooting to average 180 fps?

    My buddy and I were discussing ILF limbs, and arrow speed differences last night...I told him that due to differences between Lot numbers of materials,, glue batches, environmental differences during lay-up, finish thickness, etc., etc.,, that there will be small differences in performance...

    Does anyone have an arrow drop chart that they could share, for 170 or 180 fps, with a 20-yard zero?

    I do not want to stir another pot like the 17+ page "circus" that got started over on AT recently by Turbonockguy making some misguided and immediately repudiated speed claims for Black Swan bows. I know it wasn't the first dubious claims and there are some legitimately dissatisfied cutomers...

    How many FPS does a "flexible" riser contribute to arrow speed? I'm saying this only partly in jest: an ultimately stiff riser has to suck up some of the stored limb energy and, not being flexible, has no way of releasing it. Curious is any comparative studies have been made with regard to...

    Hi, As I plan to get new limbs I would like to know from your experience how fps change stringwalking crawl? My setup shot at 170fps and I hope new Hex6 limbs of the same weight should give me more fps. So I supposed that it will shrink stringwalking grip for each distance. My question is it...

    Ok, Some of you probably remember my post about my issues with a custom bowyer, and the long wait etc.. or if you are on POA you probably read that thread. Well after all of this, I got to thinking crap happens, and felt bad for the bowyer. He really is a nice guy, in his words he got...

    Looking for a CA zone A critter set up. Looking for machined metal riser [ILF] that will handle 80#+. Mr. Gordon reminded me that my BBBwarf is maybe 30yrs old;-[ Unreasonable performance expectations? Sam, your risers come with a safety guarantee;-]? Need at least a 19" riser [...

    Thats a pretty huge claim! Has anyone tested these out? .

    I finally broke out my new Chrony today. Only been 60 days. I have a pair of 34# SF longs that I like to shoot and like the way they shoot. I put them on several risers and put them thru the speed trap with a 320 gr arrow. 25" riser = 34# = 175fps 20.5 warf = 34# = 173fps 17 morrison = 42#...

    Is there a generally accepted number for how many FPS you loose/gain for a certain amount of grains (say 25 grains)? I realize it is precisely dependant on the energy of the bow, but I'm just looking for a general answer for bows between 50 - 60lbs @ 28". Also, what would be a general amount...

    I been working on an arrow for 80 yds shots. I cut a 6 x 520 redline to 29", 45MM kurly vanes, 60 gr field points (294.5 gr). I shot them thru the speed trap out of a 65" Warf Proline. FS glass/foam longs (42#) I have got them drawing 46#@28" on the Warf. if ya calculate the the gr/# ya...

    I was at the archery range today and did some chronograph work on a few bows. Shooting off-the-shelf on all bows with minimal silencers on string and using a glove. Just a bunch of numbers for those that like to analyze numbers. DAS Dalaa KAP Challengers (43#) 8.8 gpp (178) 9.8 gpp (168) 11.0...

    is 550 grains going 192-5 fps enough for elk on rib hits with Delta 4blade heads and Razorcaps 3blades, or should I go with a heavier arrow? I was thinking of lowering my arrow weight with an Axis and upping my trajectory.
