Dear Patrick,

thanks for your fast answer!
Found it.
31 inch, 6 gpi means 186 grain shaft
and 100 grain tip, total 286 grain!!!
Thats feather light. I have no chance
to get even close with bamboo ;-)

All the best from A-Ping

I would.5/16" or better. Do at your own risk. Just don't do it in compound bows or crossbows

Thanks leadball , I have some other tubing which is the same size, 5/16 od and trying to get 1745 tubing through is quite the chore , but to get that speed it will be worth it, thanks again

used a hammer from simple shot. I'm waiting on mine. planning to set it up for sling bow fishing. I guess this band set would be excessive..

You get some fine wire and poke it thru the end and twist. the other end of wire push it thru tubing grab it on the other end and pull it thru to where you want it .pinch it there and pull the wire it will tear loose from the 1745.It will be where you want it.

I'm a traditional hunter and bow builder and with a glass longbow 210fps isn't unheard of, and 180 with a self bow is good, BUT, these are speeds shooting much heavier arrows, a typical hunting arrow for deer is more in the 9 to 10 grains per inch range. I would be interested to see your speeds with a heavier arrow.

 

Still quite impressive though, great work.

 

BTW new compounds are getting speeds that are 350 and some approaching 400.
