    Yup, its a longbow.
    I dont know really, could be the combination of timbers?, I used cascamite on this on instead of resourcinol?
    I will make another with resourcinol and see if its as fast. Other than that I havent a scooby doo!

    Wow, congrats!
    Did you build it up with a bit of backset?
    Go on post some pics, we'd love to see... (or some basic dimensions, how long? How slim did you go with the tips)
    Oh, sorry I've forgotten, how fast did you say it was again?
    Btw, I'm just about running out of Dacron, and I'm touing with the idea of getting FF for next year I know it's faster, but how do you feel it is for a longbow, does it spoil the smoothness at all? (It's the price that puts me off if I'm honest, who said 'tightwad'? )

    204 ft/sec .... well ...that's all right I s'pose ...... he said sick with envy

    Lee .... that's an astonishing achievement, well done mate. I've never known a bow go over 200 and as KAS said, it challenges some of the ideas about bamboo

    Well done Lee

    Good job you weren't around 600 years ago. I can just imagine a rousing "Merde!" rolling round the paddocks of La Belle France.
