Yep! my vendetta is for 3D, i had a thread on here of me shooting at 105yds and that is what i used to do that with, that bow is an awesome 3D bow!

I've only put about 40 shots on the shark, it is literally the most dead in hand bow that i have shot. I can't wait to shoot it through a chrono soon.

Ata

ON the Shark.....why did you shorten the ATA so much ?????

I built one back to "spec" last year and lost some pounds on the limbs......really only gained about 5 fps..........you have some scary preload on those, dude.

Let us know how it chrono's out ,
Thanks,

It's really not that much preload on it. I got the specs for the strings from alligood who got his specs from Nathan Brooks. The bow shoots awesome and i don't see it ever failing on me

specs

I used some MM limbs and the original specs from a BMXL with some HF cams last year too.....should be about the same amount of preload as you have ...as I had 2 more inches of limb and the same ATA as a BMXL.

Limbs failed in a press right at the rocker....even after backing thew out to put them in the press.......so just be a bit careful.

I will say....I have been Frankenbow building for about 17 years and it can be a hoot.....and the new PSE limb is UNBELIEVABLE.....this is actually the only set I have seen fail. They also told me to watch the riser on the BMXL.......but that was fine , too.


Post up the speed you get with the new Shark Madness!!!!!

i just got done shooting it at 75yds and it was shooting 3" groups consistantly, and used the same exact sight marks off of my vendetta from 20 to 75yds and my vendetta was shooting 313fps. so i think this bow is super fast and is an awesome shooter!:darkbeer:

Have you had any issues with the draw length mods coming loose on your axe? I know its a problem they've had. A buddy's having it now.

The string specs I gave you were for my madshark, with madness cam AND limbs as well, not the original shark limbs. Just curious, what kind of draw length did you wind up with on that one? I'd like to know the speed you're getting on it too, and the lbs.....mine shoots very nicely!!!!
