says 139 pound draw weight, i want to shoot that a few times, maybe even for hunting. I guess when you design your own stuff you can build whatever you want...

I saw on the strother site he said he has got a bow to shoot over 600fps. Major poundage and I think a arrow he designed.

He shot little metal vanes, like razor blades. I've always been impressed with that.

I set the World's Fastest bow record with a 180# bow shooting 588 fps.

Yes you have to draw the bow by hand with NO assistance.


My World Flight record was a 195# bow, shot a 132 grain arrow a distance of 1320 yards 1 ft and 3 inches. The fletchings are actual razor blades!!!

Mr. Strother I would like to know if this was an engineering problem you were working on or if you were curious if it could be done or if someone simply said no way.........Thank You

Riser was made from steel, reinforced limbs, .250 diameter axles, double locked down limb bolts to hold limbs into the pocket.

Speed was over 640 fps.

Was told that the records couldn't be broke, so I thought "we shall see" the rest is history.

I like to push the limits of anything I do.

Thank You, you have always struck me as a person that says oh yeah watch this, and I mean that with respect. Keep pushing the limits beyond what we think is possible it can only benefit all of us Thank You.
