Something New
« on: June 11, 2024, 11:51:55 AM »
Prolly gonna do the build along on the next set of limbs. These are way light, got the string on it. REDNECK tiller treed  :biglaugh: at 29 in. I am thinking it looks pretty good. Also thinking a tip wedge would be good to. 12 degree pads and .001 FT ST wedge

You could try adding an external tip wedge overlay to the back of the limb tips and see if it does what you want it too.... just a thought... Kirk

Second set of limbs W/ tip wedge. Target weight 47 got 46. The wedge helped keep some reflex in the tip. Gives a bit better string angle.
What you all think? The new tiip got a shadow but see able.

What's the taper rate on your wedge and how long do you make them? I haven't done research on them yet.

Bow looks awesome!

This wedge is 10.25 long about .250 - 0. You can make them longer for shorter draw length. Kinda built in power wedge that will flex and not hinge. This is 62 in. With 18 from fade to string groove and a stiff tip. I may be able to back off on the tip wedge a bit once I see how things work out, BTW I thought stringing this thing the first time it was way heavy. Turns out it has a ton of preload.

Thx Kenny. I am like you the form looked kinda funky but I have seen that before. And it even looks crazy unstrung.

This one likes a heavy front weighted arrow it has a little buss after the shot but front heavy cures it. May even have to go a bit stiffer arrow. Or maybe need to back off on the weight in the wedge. I never
Shot the first set of limbs being so light weight.
