    my new Constibarnesdale!

    I traded a 2010 Parker I had to fellow on AT that advertised a 2007 Constitution that he picked up from Wicked1strings after it had a set of Barnsdale made G5 Quest limbs and new strings put on it. The Barnsdale limbs are about 1/2" longer (each) than the factory limbs (which were included in the deal too.) I got the bow this week. I have another 2008 Constitution I have set up with a release. The new barnsdale limbed bow has a 9" brace height due to the longer limbs. It also has a 31" dl instead of the max factory 30.5".

    What a fast, awesome finger bow that fits me well! I set both bows up at 61#. 401 grain ACC arrow. Shot thru my radachron. New bow had no silencers, 9" BH, 31" dl, and no peep-shot with fingers= 279 fps! The original connie has a set of leaches, 30" dl, and a peep, 8.5" BH shot with a rope release= 269 fps.

    Those barnsdale limbs smoke!

    Here is a picture of the two bows together. The barnsdale limbed bow has tan strings and silver cams.

    Thought I would bring up an old post and ask a question. I only have the bow with the G5 limbs left. I should be shooting 32" draw. I believe the 2005 Connie was draw length specific, but could have a 32" draw with E3 cams. If I got a set, would I retain my draw weight I have with the LA cams? If so, does anyone want to trade cams?

    I have '05 E-4 cams, interested?
    Just getting started......
    Bowtech '06 Tribute draw board says 51#, 28.5", 261 fps with airborne mods using 408g arrow. Now I am working on a Bowtech '05 Constitution...

    According to bowtech's chart E-4 cam gives a draw length for an '05 Constitution as 31.5", that all the info I have.
