Win&Win had several products from the new WiaWis line on show in Indianapolis. The WiaWis series is a development and renewal of the Inno series, but with the addition of nano carbon to the carbon fibres used in the construction to further reduce vibration. Win&Win states that using both types of carbon this way can increase mechanical stiffness by up to 30 or 40 per cent over carbon fibre alone, and maximising the combined carbon properties also reduces almost twice as much vibration.
The new design of the WiaWis Nano Max riser also features a ‘weight balance system’, in which additional weight is built into the leading edge of the riser to move the bow’s centre of gravity forward. As well as helping to disperse bow shock after the shot, it also makes it harder to torque the riser. Available in black or white bodies with bright colour accents, the shape is reminiscent of the Inno series models, and it features the same threaded bushing under the grip for additional weights as the AT and MAX models. It will be available in right-handed and left-handed 25-inch versions, and a right-handed 27-inch version.
The WiaWis One limbs also feature the new use of nano carbon technology, in a carbon nanotube resin. Three years in testing, these limbs have been designed to be resistant to twisting and damage, and also feature a natural fibre material known as Flaxpreg, which has a twisted structure and, used between carbon laminates, dissipates residual energy in the limbs. A further reinforced carbon laminate layer towards the tip ends of the limbs on top of the recurve has been inserted to distribute the strain evenly through the overall limb and keep unnecessary limb movement to a minimum – designed to keep the limb body functioning as ‘one’ it’s this feature that gives the new limbs their name. The new WiaWis One limbs will be available in a foam core and wood core version, in Short, Medium and Long lengths and weights from 28-48 pounds.
Win&Win’s stabiliser lineup also has a new addition in the WiaWis ACS Nano. Using a tapered design and reinforced foam for stiffness and stability, the long rod also eliminates the need for a v-bar connecting bolt with a screw long enough to connect to the extender through the v-bar itself. This reduces the weight at the back of the stabiliser setup by 40g compared to the HMC system, and Win&Win has added an extra 25g to the stabiliser head to move the centre of gravity forward.
As well as all that, there’s two new tabs out too – the WiaWis EZ and the WiaWis EZ R. The EZ features an adjustable palm plate that can be moved up and down into seven possible vertical positions, and can be turned over so you can have the swell on one side facing into your palm. The EZ R has a circular palm extension that can be rotated to lie flat against the tab or extend into your hand. It also has a sliding-adjustable little finger hook, which can also be detached completely. Both tab designs are available in right- and left-handed options, in sizes XS, S, M and L.
