Blue line is interpolated speed: read down gpp and corresponding speed on left (fps)
Red is KE (centaur Bow Is weighted 54#@28"): for a given gpp level down read corresponding KE on right
Green is Dynamic efficiency: for a gpp level down read corresponding DE on the right


I will put the BD hex 6.5 graph but can t find it on my iPad
10 gpp speed under same testing conditions ( 28" DL AMO, hooter shooter, mech release and medium BH in the bowyer BH recommended range ) was in low to mid 190's fps

I've got a 15 inch ilf riser setup with a set of xL Centaur limbs ,they draw 56 pds at my 31 inch draw and shoot 548 gr arrow at 195ps off my fingers ,though these are ilf limbs and not a 1pc bow..
Also I've got a set of XL hex 6.6 limbs ,just hooked them on today on same riser to test , actually usually use them on a 17 inch riser but wanted to test both in same ..They pull 54pds at 31 for me on it and shoot same arrow at
206 fps..So the hex will surely be faster ..But the centaur are great also ..Jim makes great products..

I have Jim's triple carbon, foam cores, and dark matter riser. I also have a set of Hex 7 Hyperflex cores. Both are 36lbs at 30 inch. I have shot them together for quite some time, they are both fast, but the Borders win hands down. No hard numbers, no science, it is just very clear.

Have a great day,
Kasey

My carbon Centaur is the fastest longbow I've shot. 2 out of my 3 Saluki's are about 8-10 fps faster at the same length and draw but require more attention to the grip and release. I can't speak to the Borders yet.

Accuracy and speed. My question was not about ILF, if i remember correctly JP and Ray has done such a test couple of years ago.

I have seen many different reports about both bows, just not by the same tester/archer.

I might clarify that its not the actual topspeed im after, wich offcourse will vary depending on all sorts of things ( DL, realese, hootetshooter, etc) but the diffrence between them when the same person shoots the same gpp. If the chrono that person uses is off high or low it doesent mather. The diffrence will be the same.
i agree its like comparing a drag car to a pro street car both fast enough

Honestly i think the dryads are a faster longbow limb than the centuar as well as A&H. You cant beat that acs design. My a&h is shooting over 200fps at #45/28". Although i am using lite 3D arrows. At 9gpp its in the mid to upper 190's

And in the end when i can no longer draw the bow, or watch the arrow embark on its flight. When i possess only the spirit of the hunter, I will hunt... if only in my dreams... because the hunt is born amidst my soul, and I ... I am the hunter
