One of the biggest buzz word phrases in archery is “draw force curves”. If you have interest in what a draw force curve is, and how to interpret one, you might want to check out my page on the topic here. I really enjoy using a bow that handles well, packs a lot of energy to the arrow, and still shoots smoothly. I have avoided making bows that simply throw arrows at a high velocity, in favor of designs that will shoot smoothly with minimum noise. I find these bows to be just as efficient as the “power bows” and they are a joy to shoot. You don’t need a degree in physics to understand a draw force curve, so please check the page out if you have interest! I think you’ll have a little more understanding about what your fellow archers are aiming for.
