I´ve had a very busy time the last months, now it´s time for to relax and to study this highly interesting topic: Hysteresis in wooden bows.
A great work of Dick Baugh of “Primitiveways”. I always thought hysteresis to be the final key in making great performing wooden bows.
So go for: Internal friction in bow limbs and: Bow and arrow efficiency.
I´ll do these tests and discuss the results soon.
