    Default You seen the bowturbow? What do you think?

    I saw this posted on another forum and see there is now a website.
    Anyone have any thoughts. There are no pictures of it it. It looks like a roller guard assembly for a normal cable slide rod?

    What I can't figure out is why this would greatly increase the bow speed. It looks like it would increase the draw weight and possibly mess with the draw length?

    They don't even give you a close up of the darn thing or tell you how it works. All they show is the chrono giving a higher number why no close up on it?

    I'm thinking it's some device that puts some spring loaded pressure on the slide. If I'm wrong please forget you read this...I'm gonna be buisy

    There is definitely something fishy going on here. The video is intriguing but their web site is lacking to say the least. Either it is a scam or the they got a bit excited and jumped the gun showcasing the product without a descent web page or adequate information. Did you happen to read the comments page on their site? Why would any company want comments like those on their site??? Interesting.

    Both have been in the archery buisness for quite awhile. I dont see them lying and ruining one reputation. I hope it works and works well.

    From what I can tell doesn't it shorten your cable length which would make your draw longer and increase your poundage ?? But still that was quite a increase in FPS Might work............

    Joella is a Tn girl
    got her start in the early nineties
    she worked with us in the TWRA/ International Bow hunter Ed for a short while
    she was looking for some notoriety and I can remember her asking all kind of "how can I make this thing go faster" questions as she was launching her bow shooting career
    she was also a lot smaller
    of course age has a way of slipping up on you.

    I read some other posts that say it dosen't increase weight or change the draw length. If this thing is legit, they are going to sell a million of them.

    I have to agree,no reason to lie about a product,it always seems like these negative attitudes are the norm with archers,when these kind of products come out.looks like a great product,i hope it works out cause i sure would like one myself.............

    I don't see how it can give a speed increase without increasing weight? I'd have to know more.

    Can't imagine it'd be any different than twisting the piss outta the buss cable.

    More preload, more draw weight, 1/2"-3/4" more draw length. A little TLC on the rest of the bow tuning and it would still shoot bullet holes and group decently.

    could actually work.

    Would like to see it on a bow that isn't 300+ already, my bet is the gains are relative. Meaning, you may get the additional 25fps starting with a bow already doing 302, but what do you get when starting say.... 60# 285 fps?

    exactly, nothing's free. to get that much more energy out, you have to put more into it. that thing doesnt undo physics......

    It seems to be a very good idea.

    The added speed appears to come from reducing the friction between the cable guard rod and slide. I know that there is some lost energy here, but 25 fps seems like a lot unless the slide badly needs cleaning.

    I will withhold judgement until I hear from some of you "early adapters".

    I really hope that it works since I have a short DL and wouldn't mind a few extra fps without higher DW or lighter arrows.

    The price seems a bit high, but if everyone is getting an addional 15 to 20 fps, it would be worth it.

    Here's what I'm seeing. First, they are putting it on forward of where the cables would be at rest. Second, the cables do not get to travel rearward on the slide like usual. Thus, when you draw, you are putting more load on the limbs. More load ='s more speed. It has to increase draw weight. No way out of it. I'd be afraid of the extra load on the limbs. You could possibly put more load than the limbs were designed for.

    I think the added speed comes from increased load on the limbs due to not allowing the cable slide it's full range of travel. guys on AT are claiming it doesnt increase peak weight or holding weight, but it has to be increasing the amount of energy stored in the draw force curve, so it will take more energy to draw. as long as it doesnt void the bow's warranty it probably will be a good thing for people who want more speed.
