Hi all,

Just got my copy of the Glade, and I read that there are new Yamaha
limbs called 'super ceramics'. Who can tell me something new about these
limbs, whats the difference between them and the 'old' EOLLA ceramic limbs?

Happy shooting,

 Marcel van Apeldoorn

Marcel was asking about these and I got given a flyer regarding them
this weekend, it's all "Yamaha" speak, and doesn't mean very much to
me!"
 
Super Ceramic Carbon with new high speed stable release system Power
Recurve Structure for a new generation in high power limbs.
 
<Snip stuff about Eolla>
 
....the signal Yamaha technology is sending to the world of archery is
that of lighter pressure on the shooter with the development of it's
single piece construction, new generation Super Ceramic Carbon limb.
Yamaha's own Power Recurve Construction technology has for the first
time made possible single piece bow construction and brought about a new
standard in shooting accuracy for archers of the new generation...bla
bla Eolla's are dead good bla.
 
Power Recurve Construction For a Swift Increase in Shooting Accuracy
 
The direction of flight of an arrow is decided the instant it is
released from the string. Yamaha's newly developed Power Recurve
construction controls string slippage at release with a recurve groove
strategically located at the tip of the limb that corrects the arrow to
maximum stability during that final instant prior to release, so that
your arrow flies the same, every time <cracking sentence!: ed> Of course
the limb centre point can be adjusted and fixed to the optimal position
for the individual shooter. The high speed stability provided by the
combination of the power recurve structure and the limb centre point
adjuster constitutes the world's first single-piece construction recurve
bow system in the world and a new standard for a new age in archery.
 
Limb Centre Point Adjustment Mechanism
 
The limb Centre point adjustmnet mechanism prevents the lower part from
moving to the right when the string centre is adjusted to the upper part
of the handle or the upper part from moving to the left when the string
centre is adjusted to the lower part of the handle.
 
END of Yammy blurb!
 
Well, don't you understand completely now? 8-)
 
Questions: WHen they say "single piece construction" do they mean that
the limbs aren't laminated??? Solid moulded?
 
The power recurve (I have a picture!) is like a bubble in the recurve.
The groove cut to take the shank is much deeper than on normal bows so
the string doesn't touch the limb. The bubble is on the opposite side
from the groove (otherwise it would be a hole!)
 
The limb centre Point adjustment seems to be  a locator stud on the limb
which is adjustable so a bit like the horizontal adjustment on the PSE
Centra and the Avalon but in the limbs instead of the riser....it's a
bit hard to say tho because the blurb isn't very clear (Yamaha brochures
never are !)
 
Well I hope that answers your question 8-) Apparently Yamaha have these
limbs stockpiled and they will be with the dealers for distribution and
sale in January.

John, 

My name is Bob Walters and I noticed your information on the Yamaha
Super Dooper limbs.  There are none available here in the U.S.A., but
I have a friend who has friends that live in Japan, and they are 
bringing me a set of the new limbs. You mentioned "Long" limb, I was 
curious why you singled out long limb.  I ordered my limb in 40-41 lbs.
and medium lenth, which will give me a 68" bow with a long handle.

I am looking forward to trying these limbs, I have heard they are the
best thing since sliced bread. 

I am new on this internet so you may never get this, but if you do give
me a reply on my mailbox. I'll let you know how the limbs preform. 

So long, 

Bob Walters

The "LONG:" in the subject heading had nothing to do with the limb it
was a reference to the length of the posting...Net Etiquette etc. I
could have said very long, short or medium !

The limbs aren't available elsewhere until the New Year...so I'm told.

>I am looking forward to trying these limbs, I have heard they are the

Yes, but the information invariably comes from Yamaha in the first place
or a dedicated Yammy shooter. I certainly wouldn't expect a drastic
performance improvement...they may give you 5 points on a FITA not 50!

Besides I don't eat sliced bread...mass produced junk 8-)

That's because all these Japanese chaps are shorties 8-)

Think yourself lucky if you were left handed you wouldn't be able to get
a 70" Yamaha at ALL! (No long left handed riser)

I was thinking about 5 points at the 1150 stage more like a point at
higher level so you still only get 1297 ;-) If they can shoot 1350+ with
TD4+ then I'm sure you don't need Super Ceramic Limbs to get a 1300?

Or are Yamaha limbs inferior at the moment ;) :) 8) 8-) ;-) etc

No he's not, he was shooting a Browning (wasn't he?). When you shoot
that many arrows the limbs get tired hence the gradual degression in his
scoring ;-) (Ok so I don't like the Browning)
