What is a 'Clara', vaughny always jumped a JVX now it specifies he was jumping a 'clara'.

Never heard of those...

Well done Benno (Ben Lewis) intermediate last year and in the top 10 of the open this year.

Good boy!

hard to tell for sure, but it seems to have a significant amount of tail taper.



My first thought as well, except that it went something like "wow, looks like a flattened and x-braced Katana!"

LOL, it has more taper than a JVX for sure but to compare it to a katana is a laugh.

Good to see something new come out of the woodwork.

Clara and Eve look like the inverse of one another.

Clara *seems* heavily tapered on the rear with more of a straight edge.

Eve seems very tapered on the leading edge, but straight along the back.

Very hard to tell with the camera distortion though (lens curvature I mean)

Interesting characteristics on foxy - especially when a front riser is pulled :D


Something about Clara's shape reminds me of a Diablo.

I am betting that it dives pretty quick when you do that....

haha for sure, Attila looked pretty keen to get that Crossfire out after that happened.

Intersting cutaway on the risers there too..

Great to see Vaughny getting good results on Clara.

It looks to me that Clara is tapered on the nose and tail, while eve is definatley pretty square on the back.

I also found Ilona;
