Re: Reducing bow poundage
- OK, this doesn't address the legality, just the physics. I don't
understand...if a bow doesn't pull full weight (say 32#) at 26", pulls
full weight at 28", and pulls over full weight at 30", why wouldn't a
slightly longer string reduce the pounds of pull at 28"? As I
understand it, the pounds of resistance in the limbs is a factor of how
far they are bent, and if the longer string results in less bend at 28"
draw, why wouldn't the measured pounds of draw be reduced?

- Hi, Jim. Hello, Everyone.
My right ring finger was just itching for a ring a moment ago, and I thought of this project. How far along did this move?
