Here is a PREVIEW of my RE-VIEW.
I have some new stabilizer parts coming, and they have not arrived yet.
he is a PRE-View of my RE-View.
Spent most of today checking out the DST 40.
Chris at OK Archery made me the "SPEED DEMON" version,
so we're talking the smaller cams with modified limb pockets
to get me to the 27.25-inch TRUE DL, which translates to 29.0-inches of AMO DL.
Most European bows are sold based on TRUE DL, which is 1.75-inches LESS than AMO DL.
Slapped the bow on the draw board, to check:
a) draw length setting.....DEAD ON PERFECT, straight from the factory.
b) cam sync.................DEAD ON PERFECT, straight from the factory.
Fired several shots.
ZING. ZAP. WHOOSH.
The bow draws/builds/hits peak draw weight EARLY.
Limbs are parallel and pre-loaded.
Holds peak draw weight for a long long time, and then free falls into the wall/holding weight.
This was with the stock cam timing (factory cam starting rotation position).
No chrono work yet. Gotta build a proper chrono lighting system, first.
started tweaking the cam timing
(went a skosh longer on the buss cable)
(went significantly shorter on the bowstring twists).
Much smoother draw cycle.
When I get to the full blow tech review,
I will do a Draw Force Curve for the way I like to shoot the draw cycle
I will do a Draw Force Curve, bone stock, as delivered in the box.
a few pics,
This is the ABSOLUTE FIRST bow,
I have been able to take a bareshaft and SPLIT the bowstring,
shooting at 3-yards, ish.
custom modified Paradigm String Supressor...
front stabilizer bushing (not a Quick Disconnect) to protect the front stabilizer threads in the riser
Doinker Platinum Hi-Mod front stabilizer.
A PROPER review to follow later.
