Speed Test Shoot-out by Scheibenpanik!

A great speed test shoot-out conducted by Daniel Goll at Scheibenpanik between the Bodnik Slick Stick longbow and the Bodnik Mohawk Hybrid take-down bows!
Both bows are marked up at 40# @ 28” draw length.

Daniel writes…

In the interest of conducting this test both bows were measured on Scheibenpaniks scales and came out at 41,25 lbs for the Mohawk Hybrid and 40,70 lbs for the Slick Stick.

Arrows used for the test were the Penthalon Traditional Black with 600 spine fitted with 125gn points. Total arrow weight: 355,2 gn
This gave the specific weights of:
Mohawk Hybrid: 355,2 : 41,25 = 8,61 gpp
Slick Stick: 355,2 : 40,7 = 8,73 gpp

For the speed test we used the very accurate “ProChrono Digital”. To gain fair results we shot ten arrows from each bow through the Chrono at a distance of 2 meters from the front edge bow to the first measuring point.

Results:

Slick Stick:
173 / 177 / 182 / 184 / 176 / 176 / 178 / 185 / 175 / 188
Average speed: 179,40 fps.

Mohawk Hybrid:
184 / 190 / 183 / 186 / 183 / 184 / 187 / 185 / 188 / 183
Average speed: 185,30 fps.

Although bow bows were extremely similar the Mohawk Hybrid did just edge ahead. Despite the slightly higher weight it felt lighter to draw and because of the more pronounce handle shape in our opinion it sits better in the hand than the Slick Stick.

The results of this speed test for bows of 40# and arrows of this weight are nothing short of astounding!

Supplemental:
As we have been asked for several times we ran the test again but this time with much lighter arrows:

Penthalon Slim Line Black 800 arrow weight 260,6gn and Penthalon Safari Hunter 600 arrow weight 305,1gn.

With the following results:

Slick Stick:
Penthalon Slim Line Black 800 (6,40 gpp.) –
199 / 203 / 202 / 203 / 205 / 202 / 199 / 201 / 207 / 204
= Average speed: 202,5 fps

Penthalon Safari Hunter 600 (7,50 gpp.) –
189 / 192 / 193 / 192 / 191 / 194 / 192 / 190 / 195 / 191
= Average speed: 191,9 fps

Mohawk Hybrid:
Penthalon Slim Line Black 800 (6,32 gpp.) –
205 / 208 / 205 / 211 / 208 / 210 / 212 / 211 / 212 / 207
= Average speed: 208,9 fps

Penthalon Safari Hunter 600 (7,40 gpp.) –
193 / 196 / 193 / 199 / 203 / 198 / 201 / 194 / 196 / 198
= Average speed: 197,1 fps

The results of the speed test can also be seen on the following table…

Many thanks to Daniel for this very thorough and interesting test!
