He's a bowyer, and just showing off how well his bows stay together.
He actually builds & supplies bows to other companies under different names.
Lancaster archery carries at least one model of them.

If I were a bowyer, and had that much faith in the construction & materials of my bows, I would do the same thing.

That's pretty darn good advertisement right there.

Why hide his identity with the hazmat suit?

He may have been also concealing his identity, but I'm thinking the hazmat suit was primarily for his protection during the torture test.

You can get both the recurve or the longbow from Lancaster Archery for $200.00. They sell it under the name of Galaxy "Ember". I believe they will sell the riser with a set of recurve and longbow limbs as a set. Not a bad looking bow. I wonder how it shoots.

I assumed the suit was in case the bow blew up in his hand.

The only thing I have seen close is Black Widow standing on a recurve limb and bending it out straight into a C shape.

The cuts in the limbs make for cooling from rapid fire
Just like holes in brake rotors- I think he's on to something

The bow held together after all that beating that is one tough bow! He took precaution so he won't get any pieces in his skin. Timex of bows.

White Falcon...I was cracking up when he started whacking the power pole with the bow. I puckered down south when he took the grinder to the limbs.

If Im not mistaken...the gal and guy in the dry fire portion of the video were speaking a Far east asian language...not Russian.

Whatever they were speaking, the place looked like a war zone.

It looks allot like one I almost bought last year. Wonder if it's the same under a different name.

Watching that makes me wonder if we are babying our American made bows too much. Ask yourself just what can he be using in that bow material wise that we don't have in our bows. Plastic lams maybe.

He was saying this is a tip for quieting your bow, seemed to work. Ya'll recurvers let us know, maybe try on compound.
