    Yeah... I have read that article. The author is right, the record situation is somewhat unclear. I believe the "record" with the UK guy who claims 199 J with 3/8th is complete nonense, That speed isn't achievable with straight rubber. There is no video, just a photo, and that says that the previous shot was clocked at 169 fps - much more believable than the rdiculous 600 fps value.

    The guy either faked the whole test, or it was simply a failed chrony measurement.

    Clear rules are called for.
