We dont like simple solutions !
We use brass for stabilisation risers in our longbows. Vertical plate of brass glue in riser increase mass, stiffnes and speed of bow
CARBON STATIC AND SEMI STACIC RECURVE
Tapered carbon inlay inside of recurve icrease stiffnes of recurve , give smoother draw and lower vibrations compare to popular working recurve
Tapered bamboo core in very complicated way in Saracen and Iskander asiatic bows for better stability and effeciency
TRAPEZOID LIMBS CROSS SECTION
Experimental section of limbs with wider belly glass. In theory glass is better in tension then in compression, in this way inner forces in limb are in better balanced. it gives lower vibrations and better speed
We create true horn effect on asiatic bows by multi layers painting
We use unique synthetic materials on our short asiatic bows. Most of common laminated bows are made of : thin glass/wood/thin glass glued together. Glass are usually about 1 mm thick .
We use on belly experimental kind of synthetic laminate, about 5 mm thick made of few synthetic materials. Thickness and slight covex shape is similar to horn . But not only look – after about 1 year of experiments we found combination very close in properties to true horn.
Visual aspect is made by aristic improvisation- multi layers painting
What gives you in practice. Draw experience is little softer then in normal laminated bow, closer to hornbows, bows are very stable on side twist and generally more durable then classic laminated bows
The biggest issue of short reflexed fiberglass-laminate bows is delamination. It happens because the wooden core is exposed to huge compression and shear forces. Sometimes wood just breaks. We have been looking for new ideas to increase it’s durability. By experimenting we designed a construction without the wooden core, bow limbs are mainly laminated using various synthetic materials. The average amount of wood is small and it’s now placed in the part exposed to tension and not in core. This way sheare and crush forces inside the limbs have been significantly reduced.
VERTICAL CARBON IN ASIATIC BOWS GRIP
As an additional option we are introducing vertical carbon inlays in the grip to increase its stiffness (just like brass inlays in our longbows). Stiffening up the grip helps a little bit to increase stability of the bow.
