Very pretty.  Seems to me like I haven't seen too many boo/ipe bows in the last years...that one is a beauty.

   Leon, I am pretty sure your bow would test out faster than what you tested it at. It may have something to do with your style of release. For an accurate test you need to get off that string cleanly right at 28", maybe using a mechanical release. I would almost bet that the 394 grain arrow you are using would be much closer to 200 fps with a good test. I can see that bow easily shooting a 550 grain arrow at 180 fps or more.

Yeah I am not exactly known for a smooth release 8) Next time one of the guys with a longer draw and a good release is around I will test it again.

Had the same thing with my black locust hld from a while back. I could not get past 180 fps while a friend of mine got a consistent 192 fps with the same arrow

So I did another chrono test with a 30 inch 530 grain arrow. (Did not shoot it myself :o)
Shot 15 arrows at 28" draw with an average speed of 190 with 187 as the lowest and 196 the highest.

Shot my own 27inch arrow once (the one I got 177 with), is 494 grain and got 185fps

Kerel, dat is een for-mi-da-bel mooie boog, en hij loopt ook nog eens lekker, blijkbaar!

Just telling the bow is a looker and a shooter for sure!

That's more like it. Good numbers. I think you have to work on your release ;) ;). 196, eh, he couldn't pull it just a little harder ;D ;D

Haha dankjewel! Als je een keer in de buurt van Berkel en Rodenrijs bent kun je er zelf mee schieten!

Yep I definately have to work on my release! I am trying to make some flight arrows nog so I can practice that for real. That chrono thing isn't for me O:)

Good performance and looks. Congrats!

Question . . . Pics appear to indicate pyramid profile, but sometimes pics can be deceiving. Is it a pyramid?
... alone in distant woods or fields, in unpretending sproutlands or pastures tracked by rabbits, even in a bleak and, to most, cheerless day .... .  I suppose that this value, in my case, is equivalent to what others get by churchgoing & prayer.  Hank Thoreau, 1857

Thanks! When I look at it now it does look a bit like a pyramid in the pictures yes. However it is mostly wide from the handle to mid limb and then tapers to the tips.  It got a little more pyramid shaped in the final tillering which was done from the sides.
The tips are actually quite wide for my standards but this was an experiment to see if I could make something like this from ipe. My next one wil be a little shorter with a little more bend in the statics. Will tiller that one with Badgers' no set tillering method just to see what this combo can do.

Very Nice! I really enjoy seeing the bows you are turning out lately. Beautiful work.
"The bow is the old first lyre,
the mono chord, the initial rune of fine art
The humanities grew out from archery as a flower from a seed
No sooner did the soft, sweet note of the bow-string charm the ear of genius than music was born, and from music came poetry and painting and..." Maurice Thompso
