At the Victorian Yarra Valley Flight Shoot on 28th April 2002, Jim Park won the longbow section of the competition with one of our standard Woomera Longbows A-WL-A2 (64lb). His arrow was shot a distance of 274.4 metres. That was further than any of the recurve bows and further than more than half of the compound bows!!


On 27 March 2004, Jim again competed with a heavier Woomera Longbow and provided the following report:

"With the longbow I managed to get 417 Metres with a 336 grain arrow. As I was a little off-line, the shot distance would have been a little longer than the measured distance (by my calculation, 425 Metres). From the distance achieved, I calculate the arrow velocity to be around 260 to 270 ft/sec with those arrows, which is pretty quick. The bow shot beautifully. "
