With the limbs now snug inside the irons,  it is time to cut the nocks for the bowstring.

The weight of these assembled units is now at ten pounds each.  By the time we add the tension strap this will probably climb to around 10 1/2 pounds.  The extra 1/2 pound seems like a bargain when we factor in the added strength the tension strap will bring.

In a nutshell, that is what his whole exercise is about.  Weight over strength,  multiplied by patience squared.
