Infinite

Question:

Has anyone had a go with the new W+W infinite yet? It looks damn fine (well, compared to my 15 yr old TD4), but does it shoot likewise? Chris

Bloody students, always day-dreaming about what they can spend the tax-payers hard-earned money on…… It does look nice, doesn’t it? Tom — These Five Words In My Head Scream "Are We Having Fun Yet?" And the answer is …. definitely!

Response:

I agree. A pox on them. Anyway, I EARN my money by teaching chemistry to impressionable undergraduates. Major perk of being a post-grad; it’s already paid for a set of ACEs and a pair of Winacts. =) – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text -> Has anyone had a go with the new W+W infinite yet?

Lucky sod. I’m an undergrad, so have finance to worry about, unlike postgrads who in most cases have a pension because they don’t know what to do with the MONEY!!! (Sorry, brief impression that life was being very unfair. As an economist, though, reality kicked back in and I realised that life was life, and that Axis risers don’t grow on trees. ) Tom – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text -> > Has anyone had a go with the new W+W infinite yet?

I took up compound, didn’t I? <G> That said, people doing a PhD are also impressionable – I recently convinced one of them to get a compound. Tom – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text -> > I agree.

He’s shot recurve for three or four years, and always wanted a compound. Trouble was, no-one else here HAD one, and so they didn’t have a collective clue about the things. Then I turn up at the beginning of this year, and then he feels he can go and get one as there will be someone who knows a bit about them to make sure nothing breaks. Course, that comes with the problem that he’s relying on me to learn technique from…… Tom – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text -> > ahh, but are you, ….   "Impressionable" ???  <RBG> > I took up compound, didn’t I? <G> > That said, people doing a PhD are also impressionable – I recently > convinced one of them to get a compound. > Tom > > > > I agree.

Response:

As for the original question, I don’t know wnyone who has shot more than a few arrows from an Infinite, but several folks locally have them on order. Actually, they probably have them and have shot them, but I haven’t had a chance since I’ve been housebound recovering from surgery. I’m waiting for Seth to buy one and then decide that he will keep shooting whatever he is now shooting and maybe I will get lucky and get a bit of a bargain on the Infinite. — Arlington, Massachusetts USA

Response:

<sigh>   another one lost to the dark side…. <RBG>    But hey, any archer is a good archer. It’s interesting that I’ve noticed that some acquaintences that shoot compound are also getting barebows.  I think it’s to kind of get back to the root or essence. I was just explaining to some non-archer guys that had come to a party here, about archery.  We started out looking at my open loop lake source AC system (it was a Tim-the-toolman-Taylor moment ARR ARR ARR), and Lindsey’s bow was there as well.  One asked an innocuous question about a scale hanging down from the ceiling, and her bow was right there, and before they knew it I had overwhelmed all of them with answers to their questions left and right on the arrows (had ace, x10, and several aluminums there).  The riser.  The carbon limbs.  The stabilizer, the plunger, the clicker, the finger sling.  The Beiter nocking point.  Archer’s Paradox.  The points on the arrows, the spine definition, the Ambo fletchings, the adjustable ambo aperture on the sight, It was then that I realized how VERY techie a recurve bow can be! So there’s certainly no room for me to poke fun at compound bows.  hmm.  Well, that’s going too far – there is not as much room, but there’s still SOME room.  🙂  <heh heh> But honestly, the crux is archery.  the point is archery.   the sport, is archery. – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text -> cool.  the more archers, the better!  🙂  But do be sure, please, to let that > worthy candidate know that one does not always need to use training wheels? > <GDRLH>  (grinnin’, duckin’, runnin’ lahk hell) > He’s shot recurve for three or four years, and always wanted a compound. > Trouble was, no-one else here HAD one, and so they didn’t have a > collective clue about the things.

Response:

"open loop lake source AC system" OK, I’ll bite.  Is this an air conditioning system using hoses running down through the rocks to the lake and circulating water up to the abode to be used as a heat sink like Freon?  If so, does it work well when Lake Travis water is in the 80’s or down 50′ during the summer? norm

yes.  1 1/4" black poly pipe, one line up 900′ from a 1 1/2 hp water well pump to house, the copper pipe from the freon system is embedded in the polypipe coils.  The water then either goes back to lake underground, lessening the resistance on the pump, or else I run a fountain through the courtyard, and it then runs into the live oak trees.   Always provides better (more efficient) heat exchange than the ambient air would, is nice and quiet, and doesn’t get damaged if the lake comes up.  Doesn’t work well at all when lake goes away, but it hasn’t gone dry yet. <RBG> – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text – > "open loop lake source AC system" > OK, I’ll bite.  Is this an air conditioning system using hoses running down > through the rocks to the lake and circulating water up to the abode to be > used as a heat sink like Freon?  If so, does it work well when Lake Travis > water is in the 80’s or down 50′ during the summer? > norm > <sigh>   another one lost to the dark side…. <RBG>    But hey, any > archer is a good > archer. > It’s interesting that I’ve noticed that some acquaintences that shoot > compound are also > getting barebows.  I think it’s to kind of get back to the root or > essence. > I was just explaining to some non-archer guys that had come to a party > here, about > archery.  We started out looking at my open loop lake source AC system (it > was a > Tim-the-toolman-Taylor moment ARR ARR ARR), and Lindsey’s bow was there as > well.  One > asked an innocuous question about a scale hanging down from the ceiling, > and her bow > was right there, and before they knew it I had overwhelmed all of them > with answers to > their questions left and right on the arrows (had ace, x10, and several > aluminums > there).  The riser.  The carbon limbs.  The stabilizer, the plunger, the > clicker, the > finger sling.  The Beiter nocking point.  Archer’s Paradox.  The points on > the arrows, > the spine definition, the Ambo fletchings, the adjustable ambo aperture on > the sight, > It was then that I realized how VERY techie a recurve bow can be! > So there’s certainly no room for me to poke fun at compound bows.  hmm. > Well, that’s > going too far – there is not as much room, but there’s still SOME room. >  <heh heh> > But honestly, the crux is archery.  the point is archery.   the sport, is > archery. > > > cool.  the more archers, the better!  🙂  But do be sure, please, to > let that > > > worthy candidate know that one does not always need to use training > wheels? > > > <GDRLH>  (grinnin’, duckin’, runnin’ lahk hell) > > He’s shot recurve for three or four years, and always wanted a compound. > > Trouble was, no-one else here HAD one, and so they didn’t have a > > collective clue about the things.
