wow, beeing still accurate with 30 or even 35 kg of draw weight seems more or less impossible to me ... I need to practice a lot ... please keep us updated until you reach your 200 Joule shot

No one would never shoot the nuts off a knat with these setups but accuracy is relative. Think more dinner plate than bullseye still acurate enough to bring down an attacker.

Geez guys. Although I have myself dwelled in the 120-130J or so last fall... all this talk of RTS is kind of scary. I had a fork hit with quadriple TBG and 35mm steel and I almost crapped myself (pardon my french). You REALLY need to go slowly. No joking. I am thinking about buying a face protector or something. But that would really be in the way of the draw. Just wearing a hoodie makes it awkward to shoot small ammo in butterfly or 3/4 butterfly. I am genuinely scared. Therefore, I will not resume my attempts with Raw power before I train more and become stronger and more confident.







I hope I could say that....

Interesting video.
You mentioned the pouch-centering holes. Would you mind to share the other dimensions of these pouches too?
Not that i will ever use them, but i suppose those who join the hunt for power might be curious

Thats a good point Lars. Generally I use pouches 5mm wider than the ammo and 3.5x the diameter for the length.
