YAMAHA ARCHERY

E' la mia celebrazione della, purtroppo scomparsa, ARCIERIA YAMAHA della quale sono cultore e tutt'ora utente.
Sono attualmente e costantemente alla ricerca di materiale ed informazioni da pubblicare.
Con 1.220 visite nel 2016 questa pagina è quella di gran lunga più consultata di questo mio sito quindi ho pensato che dovrei lavorarci per renderla più appetibile. Sono grato di eventuali suggerimenti e/o richieste. Tutti i contributi sono bene accetti, meglio se cartacei originali che ovviamente saranno trattati con cura e restituiti prontamente. Se volete vendere od acquistare materiale Yamaha siete pregati di utilizzare il FORUM nella apposita sezione.
Because of 1.220 times page visited in 2016, Yamaha Archery Corner is the most succesful webpage of my personal site.
I would work on that to made more pleasant and efficient. To do that i would like to have some impression, request and suggestion from the readers.
Please mail me at sbr058@gmail.com. I'm still looking for more documents, pictures, impressions, opinions.
All contributions are welcome, preferably original paper which of course will be treated with care and promptly returned.
The YAMAHA ARCHERY FORUM still working please register you to keep on. Link www.sforzini.net/forum/ also if you want to buy or sell Yamaha archery.
Apologies for my basic english.

  • Questo è un Interessante articolo sulle sconosciute ultime produzioni prima del tracollo, archi speciali in esemplare unico per Sebastien Flute, considerazioni strategiche e commerciali piuttosto amare ecc. ecc. (E' in giapponese quindi anche google fa quello che può, qualcuno può riaggiustare la traduzione? link)
  • Interesting thread about last unknown Yamaha productions before the sad stop, is in japanese... link , if someone can adjust translation thats will be appreciate.

Article resume. Courtesy by John Whowell
The article is written by Kawakami Genichi, more than 40 years president of yamaha.
he says by the time the super feel was thought of, yamaha was in a bad way.
all the good engineers had left and the sales were really low, for 2 reasons.
1 a lot of people had turned to compound bows, and 2 the yamaha bows were too heavy for japanese.
so the super feel was supposed to fix that, but instead turned out to be even heavier.
because it was weaker, they had to make it fatter so it wouldn't break in half.
the Sebastian bow he says looks like a super feel 2 but isn't, it's aluminum, and was hand crafted, no mould, and not drop forged at all.
He says the super feel 2 is the worst bow, and don't pay a lot for them. they are scarce, but they're not a good bow.

Scritto dall'autorevole Kawakami san (1912-2002) presidente di YAMAHA per oltre 40 anni.  Parla fra l'altro degli archi speciali produtti per Sebastien Flute nell'epoca post Eolla (e per qualche altro atleta) che niente avevano a che vedere con il prodotto di serie che era stato rifiutato dai testimonial perchè ritenuto pessimo.
Ci sono anche pesanti critiche rivolte alla direzione commerciale che ha privilegiato il profitto alla prestazione ed alla ricerca, generando di fatto dei prodotti (FF II) fallimentari dal punto di vista delle prestazioni e delle vendite.
Commento al commento: semplicemente ridicola (oltrechè tipcamente commerciale e GIAPPONESE) la decisone di produrre per motivi di rispamio di costi solo risers DESTRI e CORTI a partire dal Feel Forged.

Hi Peter
The 12,5% power reduction by DWA is the maximum reduction possible with the Eolla design.
If you mill the original DWA (as I experienced) it works quite well but the lifetime of the new device is so short
due to low stuff thicknes.
For that i temporarly abandoned it and I'm still some friend thet can an Ergal55 cnc version.
If i find that supplier, I'll test the new product and i'll put a message on the site and on the forum.
Thanks for website appreciation!
I try to dowload the Quicks catalod 90/91 and i worked fine so i'll try from an other PC, if i find troubles I'll fix quickly.
Thanks for you cooperation.

See you

Hi Bruno,
Do you still have any draw weight adjusters with a low poundage setting (-12.5% or more) for a Alpha EX. If so I wish to order 3 sets. Please advise price and how you wish me to pay.
Thank you
Best regards
Peter
PS I think your website is great and appreciate your efforts. However when I try to download the Quicks archery page for 1990/91 it seems to have a virus. Either my computer does not allow it to load or a get a verbal message in Russian with instructions. Perhaps it needs to be checked.

Bruno,

Just sent a request to join your Forum. I'm looknig for a Yamaha Eolla grip.

Also I see in your forum that you had a nice looking Yamaha Super Feel. Do you still have anything like that available?

Hello,

Nice information you have here. I was curious if you knew why Yamaha actually went out of business? I competed back in the 1990's and I always thought that they were doing pretty well?

Also I see you you have a Super Feel for sale. What limbs do you have available and how muxh are you asking?

Hi Bruno. I must say your Yamaha website is developing very nicely. You've added a lot to it since I last visited the page. It's a great site and a wonderful testiment to the great Yamaha bow. Thanks for all your hard work. Cheers Chris
