Thanks to all of you guys.
For those looking for a great destination in RSA, go with Greg at Magersfontein. You will have a dream hunt at very reasonable conditions with the best people.
You can contact Greg an Jacqui on their website:http://www.magersfonteinsafaris.co.za/magers_contact.html

The quest to improve is so focused on a few design aspects & compensating for hunter ineptness as to actually have reduced a bow & arrow’s effectiveness. Nothing better demonstrates this than mech. BHs & speed fixated designs

Finished arrow was in the 680 gr+/- 5
Through a chrono (when shooting at a target and hitting it !) arrow speed was in the 180-185 fps range for both bow (the CariBow is the fastest of the 2 bows)

My teammate Christian was using his 62# recurve @  his 28" drawlenght with 600 gr arrows for the same range of arrow speed( easton FMJ 340, 100 gr brass insert and 150 gr 2 blade silverFLame from GKinetics) and passed through all his game (springbok, blesbok and two  huge gemsbok)
