I tried  5 shots this morning and the velocity was down to 290 fps.   These springs are still a little green and need to be twisted up again.  The following vid shows two inevitable clues for this.  A few of the outer ropes appear to show movement in the “at rest position”.  Also, and perhaps most telling,  application of the wheatie meter shows about 1/4″ of movement,  when it should show zero movement and only minor bruising t0 the meter face.

The following video is in 4X slow motion.   It shows that the field frame and kamarion and limbs appear to be handling the strains in good form.  No permanent bending of any of the components appears to be happening.  Thanks CG’s.  We are all deeply thrilled.
