Default Switchweight Saved My Season? CDLC Buck Video

After I broke my hand before Thanksgiving, I was unable to draw my new Mathews V3 (which I had just received the day before) at it's 70# draw weight. I feared it would be a season ending injury. I called Jeff at Cinnamon Creek Ranch and he overnighted me a set of 60# Switchweight modules. Tim at Brush to Bay Outfitters helped me install and set up the bow at just over 55#. I was able to draw and shoot it a few times at the reduced weight, which saved my season!

Thanks again, Jeff!

I think it’s hard to hear on regular speakers or phones, but when I was editing with my headphones, I could hear my heartbeat before and after
the shot from the Instamic (wireless mic) that was in the chest pocket of my hoodie.

Great shot and slo-mo Michael! That green light was straight and true. I like watching a well tuned arrow fly. Deadly V scores again.



I'd rather it lodge in the opposite shoulder than pass thought nothing good. Oh...and that new bow is Aight... ..

Nice job on the video and great deer. I was thinking he was probably older than he looked at first glance. He really lost a lot of weight.

Not bad for three shots through paper to tune it, huh?

Crazy how much they can lose in three weeks.

That's a product of the low light capabilities of the camera. Of course, there's a LOT of noise because I was shooting 240fps and 1/500 sec shutter to get the slow motion. I may be a little too obsessed with the ultra smooth slow mo!

I'm typically a sucker for the good light. I finally decided I was pushing my luck and I'd rather show y'all how it went down than tell you in better lighting how it didn't!

I think bow shops would be ahead of the times if they would film arrow flight and play it back.

That was a fun weekend. And on the penetration, I think you are used to that extra 15 lbs. At 70 I think it would have probably blown on through and jacked up the Jackhammer.

Perfect shot though. And the deer was really cool. Nice work across the board Michael!

When I reduced the draw weight on the V3, I went back to an old arrow setup that is lighter than what I shoot at 70#. This was a Beman ICS Hunter 340, 3 fletch Blazer vanes, tipped with 125 gr Jak Hammer. Total arrow weight is 435gr.

You can definitely tell a lot by watching it back in slow motion.

They use them in baseball to watch the spin rate, spin axis, and total movement to each and every pitch. It makes perfect sense that they would work super well for arrow flight comparisons.

To take that further, one could even evaluate what fletchings provide what effect to what broadhead. Could get limitless real fast.

High ISO on the camera (due to fast shutter speed for high frame rate) makes the nock look brighter than it is.
