This experiment is now open to anyone who wishes to try them. Also,Northshield will also be part of the polypropylene rod experiment. Forinformation on where to get materials and how to construct a weapon using thismaterial, please contact me. As always, please submit a report either online orin an email to the KEM statingyour findings on these or any other experimental weapons, including anyfailures and successes.
I would like to thank all the combat archerswho have participated in the experiment with shafted arrows this war season. Youreagerness to teach and learn has been wonderful and I personally want to thankall those who have participated and sent in your reports. This does not meanthis is a closed experiment.
