Perfect answer Matt, that is how it is for most. Like you I can shoot 65 to 75# bows using my normal form but can I hold that form for 40 targets, I doubt it very much. I work on the theory that you should have a bow you can shoot EXACTLY the same for the longest round you play, in what ever conditions are thrown at you + about 30% more, that way you never finish drained.You mean people that snap shoot vs hold at anchor??
I shoot all weights the same and I have bows up to 70 lbs - I can't shoot a 70 lb bow for as many shots as a 45lb bow - but each of those shots is aimed just the same as my 45 lb bows.
If your bow weight is dictating how you shoot you are over bowed and learning bad habits.
Great stuff - thanksmatt, i did bows for vic when he was a teen and winning all over the world. what i did was take a compound riser and design a limb for it and send it to him.we painted most red, white, and blue. i think the last one was when he was a college freshman. he said once that every one i sent was just a little bit better but he was shooting cobbled together stuff and winning. he was/is a great person and archer. kind of shows how much the archer is the determining factor in how his bow shoots!
ed eliason ordered some olympic style bows from us when we made them. we would just make whatever weight limbs he wanted. nothing different than any other order. that went for all the shooters i dealt with.
