    Default Hi-speed camera, what would you like to see?

    If you had access to a high-speed camera, what would you want to see?

    Default digital

    Digital for sure. With lots of memory. The film style cameras I've used in the past cost WAY too much to operate.

    Default Sometimes

    At the larger tournaments you could pay $20.00 to get three shots of your arrow leaving the bow in slow motion. THis would be an excellant tool and I would love to have a place to watch this!

    We are going to use this as a tool for those bows that are just a pain to tune. It should bring to light some things we have always thought but could never prove.

    1. Lots of different brands of arrow rests (especially drop aways) during the shot. Limbdriver, Ripcord, trophy taker, QAD, G5 etc etc

    2. Laura Francese running

    Maybe not in that order

    Explain what you are trying to see? Obviously one will spin more, the other may not spin at all.

    I'd like to see close-ups from several different angles of some of the top pros like Chance, Reo, Dave, Danny & others.

    Unfortunately, it won't make me shoot as well them, but it could satisfy some curiosity about their form.

    Other things:
    overhead shots of various releases - many releases are not as torque neutral as we often think.
    what's going on with the various cam types during the shot
    strings & cable reactions during the shot
    the operation of various rests

    I've wanted one of those cameras for a long time. What did you get?

    Thanks,
    Allen

    At how many drop aways are getting contact when not done right. I watched several videos at these tournaments and it was perfectly clear the fletch was getting contact often.

    I would like to see a dry fire. not just any dry fire but a dry fire from a 100lb bow with an extremely aggressive cam. BOOM!!!!!!!!!!!

    okay instead of all the destruction I think the release idea posted in the above comments is a great thing.







    still would like to see a dry fire though!

    I have shot both and cant see a big difference if any. maybe a little more speed with the straight fletch. just wondering how much faster the offset will stablize. I am talking about fletching two inches or shorter.

    I would like to see an arrow hitting something hard, like plate steel. I think that would be cool.

    Chris, I would like to see a couple of things:

    1. An IBO arrow shot out of a Monster XLR8. One video with a dead stop and another with out.

    2. A XXX shaft with no more than 150 grains up front shot off a spring steel. Then another with a 300 grain tip. We know that both set ups can shoot spots great, but we need to play with the nock and rest height, many like some lift at the nock end of the shaft to limit contact with the rest. Lets just set this one up level and see the difference and with some different width/thickness'e of launcher blades.

    3. I would also like to see how much deflection there is on a shaft when it penetrates and stops in a target. IMO there needs to be enough penetration to keep the arrow from flexing too much. Just look at the life span of a 12 th. aluminum wall compared to a thicker carbon wall. We all want a target butt that lasts, but some penetration would be beneficial to the thinner walled shafts.

    I'd like to see if a wrist strap index finger release adds a little lateral ocillation on the string at the shot as compared to a handheld thumb trigger release. I suppose it would or might be somewhat dependent on how heavy the trigger is set on the index model, but, just one of those dumb things I wonder about.

    Vertical and horizontal nock travel for as many bows and different cams as you can get your hands on. I don't know how you could accurately measure the dynamic nock travel but it would be great to know what is actually happening during the shot.
