As an aside Alistair, have you got the distance the Livery went from the 150lb bow? I think it went further despite being heavier, so I'm not sure what happened with the WA shot!

Hi Will,

Sorry it was slightly less - 227 yards.

Yeah, my ash bow was down, it shot 219 yards with a WW Livery, but I wasn't helping matters by using over 70g arrows at a tad under 30ins! My Westminster arrow on the day was 51g, but you are correct that somewhere in the 40's could be expected if using Pop.
