Studies of the slowing down of short pulses of deuterium beam ions in the DIII-D tokamak [Nucl. Fusion 28, 1897 (1988)] are extended to the regime where ion drag dominates electron drag. The deceleration of the beam ions is consistent with Sivukhin's classical theory [Reviews of Plasma Physics (Consultants Bureau, New York, 1966), Vol. 4, p. 93] to within 25%. © 1989 American Institute of Physics.
