    According to his test with one bow, there was no significant change in arrow velocity, even with a large change in brace heights. I cannot help but wonder if he might have had a different conclusion from testing more than one bow.

    I ordered this bow custom from Gregg, for compliance with some horse archery organization's rules (no shelves, no cutout windows). I've had it for about 6 months. Finally got around to putting some test footage and bow performance data together. The bow is a good performer on the chrono, and...

    So I conducted a little test today involving 3 aiming methods...String-Walking...3-Under/Instinctive...and Gap (sort of but gave up for good reason) To be fair and in the name of honesty?...I've spent a good portion of my adult life combating Target Panic and I'd rate myself as an above average...

    I have always had it in the product description that test data is available for the asking for the Aero-Flight vanes we make. Just wanted to let folks know that I finally got off my butt and got it stuck into a separate post on our website. Testing continues of course, as always. But right now...

    In this post I am going to show the results of spine tests on aluminum arrows. Aluminum is considered to make the most consistent arrow in terms of spine and weight consistency. I am going to test this hypothesis with the hope that I can use aluminum arrows as a standard for assessing the...

    So I had my friend Cody sharpen up some Zwickeys he graciously purchased and sent my way. These are the glue on models, and what real trad men shoot on wood arrows. These arrived in a manly package secure, so no postmen or women would be harmed by simply looking at, or handling the package. I'll...

    Hi all! This is just my curiosity talking. Its seems that the hex limbs are as fast as a recurve goes right now, for a longbow (1 or 2pc) that seems to be Centaur (up for debate im sure...but not in this thread). Would be fun to see the diffrence with the 2 being pit against eachother at...

    And I was shocked that when I arrived at Quest Diagnostics Labs that the young lady also handed me a urine cup and when I questioned it thinking I was only there for drawn blood she said... "Oh no Mr. looks like they want everything on you here!" So I filled the cup and took my...

    I've been curious about this bow for a few years now and my curiosity finally got the better of me. I ordered one up for a week-long test drive: 62" AMO and 45#. I ended up getting one scaling in at 47# @ 27". It was actually a limb set marked 50#, but it came in at a reasonable weight for...
