    Thumbs up The Tempest is Tuned (with VAP V1's)

    a few things must have come together for me here!

    Did some bare shaft and point weight testing this weekend and got (1) arrow fletched when I came home from work (while I was planning to fletch 3) and figured I better go shoot it with a couple bare shafts just to see and make sure all is well before I proceeded fletching them all and?...

    This was from 20yds...



    25yds...



    and 30yds...



    and got so excited I couldn't put it down and then ran in for the chrono and?...

    In the vid "Comment" box...

    This is my Borders 25" Tempest riser w/ Hex7 (shorts) making a 66"/38# rig set-up for Barebow...it sports a Spig ZT magnetic flipper rest with a Beiter micro-adjust plunger...the arrows are full length (31") Victory VAP V1's in .500 spine with 120gr points..the 2 bare shafts weigh 317grs while te flex-fletched arrow weighs 327grs for 8.6GPP...making a well tuned and extremely accurate BB rig!



    Thanks for reading, looking and watching! L8R, Bill.

    20 yards is just my starting point, I'm normally looking for a good Bareshaft at my middle crawl at 35 to 40 yards i.e I run out of crawls at 65y and start Gapping at 70 yards.

    You would get more accurate bareshaft feedback at 25 to 30 yards

    Thanks Folks!

    I'm still all tingly about how well this rig is coming together and performing for me...matter fact?...I'm seriously considering taking it up to Brevard Archer's to shoot a 900rd with it this coming Saturday!

    I can't think of a less stressful shoot than a 900 round.
    Archery is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your score is, what place you are in) then you lose the capacity to focus on the process.

    Grant...I waited until I got home to respond to you here with complete and utter agreement as not only did I find shooting 900rds very relaxing where I'd just chill and settle in with my rig on every shot but also?...it served as a great confidence builder for me where I'd usually burn up a Field or Hunter round afterwards at following shoots.

    If memory serves?...(in my feeble brain damaged mind)...it's scored by shooting 6 ends of 5 arrows at each distance of 40, 50 & 60yds where each arrow can score 10pts in the gold...(and while I know it bears little merit here as it was attained back when I shot fingers compound with peep and pins BHFSL)...I remembered I had this pin on my Booney Hat....and I believe it was awarded by the FAA (Florida Archery Association) for shooting a perfect 40yd set in a 900rd....30 out of 30 in the gold from 40yds.



    And if I can ever achieve the same with this Tempest BB rig here?...I'll be proud!

    Precisely. 90 shots at the huge 122cm target from three reasonable distances.

    I'm addition it's shot from the furthest distance first so it kind of gets easier as the day goes on.
