Does it do anything at all? You should see flashing symbols on each side of the letters AL when you turn it on.

Congratulations! That's great speed at that temperature. You should hit 400 next summer easily.

GREAT JOB! You give me encouragement. If you can get it at that temp, then I should be able to get close shooting indoors.

Cheers ...... Charles

Thank you! Here is another video. Sorry it's a little long. These are McMaster Car tubes (alot like tex tubes)in Henry's taper, length of approx. 10'', .25 steel,and a very small pouch. Pretty much just doing what you guys say to make speed. Great fun! Next I will have some Torsten spec. flat band from Wal-mart.

Hey guys, as you may have noticed, this is a project that got launched before the rules were set in stone. As we go, I'm seeing where some of the rules are too restrictive and needlessly complicated, especially for some of our members who may have to rely on on-line translators to read them. If you can rip off two shots in a row within 5% of each other, why require a minimum of 5 shots? If you're using a Chrony with a remote control panel, as Beanflip did, why require verification of the speed after each shot? This is, after all a club, not an international sanctioning body. I am open to suggestions on now to make qualifying for the club simpler while maintaining our integrity.

Please check post #2 frequently for changes to the rules.

I say leave the rules as they stand, just change it to more of a guideline... Leaving it open for variations.. The whole point would be for the member to do all they can to make it a verified record... I say this because I am not sure what would be the catch all guide, and when it comes time for me to get my badge I know I will do all I can to make it true to viewers, just not sure if I can remember the steps to do so.


One thing for sure.. There should be no edits.

Thanks guys!

i am sorry because i have to say i dont read the second post thorough enough. i have to say those two shots are the fastest, but i can made you 5 shots with more than 400 fps thats really not a problem :)
I remember it was only a slow. The advantage of a new video would be that I could shoot faster this time because it was the test and i made only a few shots... :)

Thanks Henry! thats really nice of you that you've taken me still in the club :) i just see you open up a 450 club ? :D

Man was this a struggle! Not the speed result, simply trying to film on a dodgy camera (dont shoot your camera), then trying to upload a large vid without WiFi, then YouTube went bonker on me...etc etc... 3hrs later this better work :$
Took the poor missus 4 takes on her phone and 3 on mine (when it wanted to work) to get this... don't Think I've ever cursed so much in my life! Any way.... Toby I'm right behind you mate...

Tobias, I answered your question in a PM. Great shooting and very impressive speed.

Ben, great shooting, and you should give thanks for a woman who is willing to operate a camera and listen to a lot of cussing while watching her man do silly stuff like shoot a boy's toy, just to impress a bunch of other boys.*

* I'm pretty sure that's the way she sees it. I'm married, too. :)
