    Very impressive, is anyone else wondering if it would penetrate a human scull?

    I was just testing some new butterfly cocktail tubes I did. The speed must have been amazing (wish I had a chrony) because I just shot through a double layer leather spinner that I usually shoot. That thing was suppose to last for ages:D<br><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/16/95/98/50/2013-011.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>The bands are 2040 I think, 30cm of them elongated to 160cm of my full draw length.<br><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/16/95/98/50/2013-012.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>The 12mm steel and its pray.

    That is a mean bandset man, i have a leather catchbox filling, and it only broke when i shot an arrow at it lol, so that indeed must have been a lot of power

    That will probably penetrate a coconut too <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_eek.gif" alt="Shocked" longdesc="5"> . Very nice tube set mate and i like that pouch too.

    Coconut bought, now I'm waiting for the right conditions - till the girl goes out of the house:D She won't let me shoot this bandset in the house after seeing what it did to the leather. Can't blame her, I have at least 7 holes to fix and 4 more in the doors..

    Formidable amount of power (20mm steel) <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_eek.gif" alt="Shocked" longdesc="5"> Tobias ... how many Joules? it's more or less power than your "Ravioli" shoot ?
