It's not "Chyna intel". The guy videos his chrono as honestly as anyone anywhere does. Watch the video, unless you're scared of clicking on something served from China.Yes, If all i had was Chyna intel, conjecture is just what your going to have.
one thing is correct speed has nothing to do with killing thin skinned game. May help with Rhino pushing a 1000grn arrow some.
Hopefully @Breathn will get around to some side-by-side comparisons with his shooting machine, but as I can tell shooting Nika N3's alongside Uukha's at the range, they're sort of similar in draw profile, and seem similar in speed or faster, to the Evo2. They seem similar in speed (but very different in draw curve) to the Gobi's. Next to the Uukha's, the N3's look higher quality. The carbon cloth lay is dead straight on the N3's, clear coat perfect. Nothing more useful to share here than these observations, unfortunately!if nika limbs are enough for you in performance but are a way better in cosmetic buy it too.
but if you want ukkha performance buy uukha limbs.
You can buy a very nice book on using proper grammar for not a lot of money. Written by Americans in the English language, printed on paper made from American trees, and printed in America by American workers. And you can pay cash for it with American made currency.Easy not to buy Chyna limbs. My Archery is mostly comes out the woods. Have some Sky and Hoyt limbs all made here. My glass bow collection was all built in USA. Dont own any Chicom Wpns either.
If i can i buy Taiwan products or India. My machines and tooling is all Taiwan Grizzly or USA made. You buy Chyna junk you deserve what ya get IMHO.
Most folks dont care they buy whats cheap. True enough. Can you not buy Chi Com crap? You bet you can. Just reach in that pocket and pull out the green and add some more for the good stuff.
Koreans make good stuff too. If ChiComs made Autos for USA market would you buy one? I think not and for good reason.
Good thread. Would be interesting to see the link Anton mentions here (though I don't have FB).
Uukha output at a scale far larger than Nika. Failures will happen. @Breathn sells Gobis and saw only one issue. The good thing however is that the Uukha warranty system has proven integrity, so if the limbs do blow up (as happened to another on TT) you will get your money back from this French company, or via the vendor.I recently came across a post on FB barebow page where numerous people had uukha failures. Not sure what model. I really liked the sx50 I tried but I would definitely research if there are any complaints. Seems uukha was warranting them well at least
Continuing the discussion from the Nobleton thread here, since the thread title of Nika N3 vs Uukha Gobi/ SX50's is a bit more appropriate. To bring any one else in this thread up to speed. Gobis from Alternative Services shipped to the US are comparably priced to N3 from Breathn so the choice comes more down to the finish and draw curve. I usually could care less about the minor cosmetic blemishes, but Remote's Uukha photo is pretty crazy.SugarG, yes, all indications are that Nika N3s are copies of the Uukha "Curve" or "Progressive Curve" series.
See the force/draw and delta force/inch of draw curves for a couple ILF limbs tested on both 19" and 25" risers at thetradlab.com to get a feel for what happens to those curves when the same limb is moved to a shorter riser. Generally, the curve moves to the right by about 3 inches of draw length. So your 28" draw on a 19" riser might feel about the same as 31" on a 25 riser. (This assumes that the limbs are heavier draw weight on the 25 inch riser.)
They haven't tested any S-Curve limbs and the Curve limb they tested (Ex1 Evo2) they only did on a 19" riser. But they did do the VX+ X-Curve on both riser lengths. The Carbon Velos is a more conventional limb that they tested on 19" and 25".
For what it's worth, Uukha (strangely) recommend the same limb length no matter your riser length. Conversely, some bowers - e.g. Border and Backwoods Composites - make five different limb lengths and recommend them based on cross-referencing riser and draw length.
Whether a copy or not, thank goodness they did since as far as I know Uukha no longer makes that DFC style limb. I'd bet good money if Nika's limb is successful they'll continue to evolve their limbs in a different direction than Uukha. It would be nice to have a wide varied choice of these cool carbon monolith limbs in the future.I wouldn't say "copied" rather inspired by, or improved upon - just as Hoyt, SF, W&W and countless others do routinely across conventional laminated limb designs and curves, all of which are very similar.
Here's hoping there are soon many producers out there racing to improve upon and out best each other in this new monolith carbon limb market, which Uukha started. This is just the beginning.
Anyway, this is pretty OT, let's continue in the comparison thread.
