    Default RTI Priest with new twist

    Spot the difference on this Priest. Testing is starting this weekend with a lot of test work and experimenting to come. I will update regularly as RTI is not helping me on this journey and there is very little information available on this subject.

    Watch this space.

    The first test one is own design. I will be purchasing a few different carbon fibre ones with different weight as well as different fletching and different spin rates.

    Will keep the forum up to date with progress

    Nice. Are you going to use arrows or crossbow bolts?

    I will be using arrows. The benefit of an Airbow is the fact that the arrow barrel help to propel the point of the arrow and the rest of the arrow follow. This do not cause stress on the shafts like what happens with compound bows and crossbows. This is like a locomotive pulling a train rather than trying to push the train. This helps to allow more room to experiment.

    Hoekom spin op pyl sit as die fletches die stabilisering doen?

    Moet juis met dit speel. Die Benjamin air bow het 2.5 grade hoek op om te spin. Ek neem aan dit help met stabiliteit. Inligting is baie beperk.

    Paul is dit 'n standaard pyl of maak jy dit van scratch. Wat van carbon fibre, sal mens nie meer spoed daar deur kry nie? Ek sien daar is 8x10mm rods op Ali vir nie te duur.

    Cor ek is die week in Pta dan gaan ek draai by twee groot Archery shops maak spesifiek vir daardie doel. Gaan loop saam vat om carbon shafts te toets. Ek het reeds goeie idee van gewig wat ek wil h. Ook wat se fletchings en hoek waarteen hulle opgesit moet word.

    Die eerste pyl was aluminium wat pel gehad het wat rondl. Al die parte is maar van sy spaar goed af. Ek was wel verbaas met akkuraatheid. Ek wil nie presies meet voor ek perfekte pyl het die. Die aluminium pyl is baie baie klein bietjie te groot wat beten ek verloor bietjie druk.

    Regte pyl, met regte gewig en regulator op 150bar behoort nie issue met spoed te h.

    Ps. Ek bring jou Huben slugs saam

    Paul dit sal ook interresant wees om die akuraatheid met ń broadhead te sien. Dit behoort goed te wees. Ek glo nie daar is veel flex in die pyl nie aangesien hy nie vannaf die agterkant vd pyl aangedryf word nie. Jy hoef dan ook nie ń te stywe "spine" pyl te gebruik nie wat jou baie meer opsies sal gee.
