With the Mk. IX limb irons finished and ready for installation, all that’s left is to figure out the woody bits. Specifically, the relative superfluousness of that area marked in chalk on the old limb. There might be 10 fps hiding in there.

My gut tells me to go all in here and thin out the tips. What’s the worst that can happen. Replacing the limbs in the event of failure is a minor chore compared to making the irons. A woody bit goes pop! So what? Maybe we learn something, eh?

Anything for speed.
Don’t worry mother. Civilians are banned from the area during testing.
