Archers Paradox Slow Motion
« on: April 14, 2009, 09:36:46 pm »
Not sure if anyone has posted this on here before? But l figured l'd post it anyway for some of the new archers on here so they can see what the arrow is doing in flight. Turn the sound up! Enjoy.

Very cool. Did you see how much the string was waving back and forth! always seemed to me that only the arrow moved back and forth like that, and the string just went strait forward. thanks for posting!

Wow! That was a cool video! 8)
But I have a question, Is that a true archers paradox?
It appears as if he accentuatiating the effect by using arrows that are not spined correctly for the bow.
Still a very cool vid.

Very sloppy release that is exaggerating archers paradox.

I think he was doing that on purpose as you can see at the end that he was protecting his hand in the event the arrow failed, which it did

I think it was actually a way underspined arrow for a heavy bow (with possibly a sloppy release too) as they were trying to break the arrow.  Cool vid though.
