My question is what is the max draw length that a short draw Oneida bow can go to?

The oneida aeroforce bow has k cams and the short oneida aeroforce bows draw length goes up to 28 inches. You can get a little more with a D loop and running the bows brace height on the lower end.

If you need to go longer perhaps we could swap cams. My Aero is a medium but at the min 29" draw is just a tad long for me with a release but managable. Only probelm is I live in England but shipping such small parts shouldn't be that expensive especially in comparison to new cams.

Oh by the way i ran across an add for a Screaming eagle for sale it said the draw weight was 70-150 pounds!? Is that right I have read that there were a few 100lb Oneida's produced but one that goes to 150 that's unreal!

An oneida screaming eagle bow at 100 pounds is a lot but possible. An oneida screaming eagle bow at 150 pounds I dont know about that. Its a great bow but also a very long riser putting an extreme amount of stress in the center of the bows riser.

Who would want to or be able to draw 100 lbs or 150 lbs? I do remember seeing articles in the 1970's about flight shooting, seeing how far you could shoot an arrow. Recurve bows developed by Harold Groves, Los Alamos, NM, were among the best flight shooting bows. I remember seeing a picture of a man lying on his back, holding the bow with his feet and drawing the bow with both hands - kind of like a human crossbow. I don't remember the poundage of the bows, but the article said the man wore lead-toed shoes because the string broke on each shot hitting his feet.

Maybe this 100lb or 150lb Screaming Eagle was a special built for flight shooting.

With the bows today performance at sixty pounds and the correct arrows and broadheads there isnt an animal in north america that couldnt be taken resposably. Dont see the need or application for either 100 or 150 pound bow.

Exactly I have never even heard of 150lb bow's. I mean the English war bow was a little over 100lb but the length of those made up some for the draw. The add that was one Ebay where someone was selling the Screaming Eagle is not there anymore I just thought it was strange that any bow would have a draw weight range from 70-150. I could understand 70-90 but not 150!

You see ill-advised listings on ebay all the time for bows where the seller knows neither the draw length nor draw weight. This is just one step worse - knowing, but wrong.

It was just a thought re, the cams. Hope you get the Aero, I love mine.
In regards high poundage bows; Some of the long (war) bows recovered from the wreck of Henry the 8th's flagship Mary Rose (sixteenth cent.) were still in good enough shape to string and draw (they were packed in barrels). The weakest was 160lb, ave. was 180lb. These were common weights for archers of the time, trained from childhood they were lobsided to look at with their left arms noticably large than their right. Effective max range for mass volley was 400 yrds.
As for the bow in question, I saw the same, and just assumed the guy got it wrong.

Thats very interesting to think of the extreme draw weights and distance to shoot even more so. :shock:

Distances shot (from an article published in 2003 by Barry Groves)

The furthest distance shot with any bow is 2,047 yards (1,871.84m) . This was shot by the late Harry Drake in 1988 using a crossbow. The furthest with a hand-held — and pulled — bow is 1,336 yds 1' 3" (1,222.01m) , shot by Don Brown with an unlimited conventional Flight bow in 1987. My 40kg (about 88 lbs) Compound World Record of 1,162 yards was made shooting a 30 kg (about 66 lbs) bow — I can't pull 40 kg!

Distances achieved in Britain include:

Conventional Flight Bow (unlimited): Alan Webster — 916 yards
Compound Flight Bow (60 lbs): Barry Groves - 914 yards. That distance has since been beaten.
