    Default Can you beat a good pro archer with them shooting the cheapest bow?

    Nathan Brooks shooting a PSE Stingray?

    Hopkins/Morgan shooting Mathews cheapest bow.

    Eric Griggs/Broadwater with the cheapest Hoyt bow.

    What do you think. Would you be willing to bet these guys?

    Cousin's is getting it done with a 35" ATA hunting bow...

    Levi shot a "10" on a 47 yard target LEFT-HANDED with his right-handed bow at the ASA shootoff in GA last weekend...

    I'm going out on a limb and saying these guys would still beat 98% of the ameteur field even with the low end bows.

    The bow is a machine, it does nothing without the archer.

    Well I use the cheapest bows and they are better shots then me so the only way I could beat them would be with a one arrow shoot and I got lucky. I wonder if we shot 100 targets if I could even win one target.

    I'm guessing Mathews cheapest bow is the Genesis. If it was 70 meters and they were shooting the Genesis...... Probably... Just probably..... I still wouldn't beat them.

    I am sure they could use any number of the low end bows and still be in the top 10% of the shooters. Why, they all have that innner drive, good mental ability to focus and they all seem to practice and practice. If you shoot head to head with them they sure have that ability to come back when they have a bad arrow. I just wish I could again have that level of control. But have had that TP for years now and iot comes and goes like the flu or bad cold. My hat is off to those top shooters.

    Didn't Jack Wallace compete in Open Pro with a Genesis after his car accident?
    I thought I remembered hearing him do that. He never was in last place, even the bottom third of the Pro's. That to me says alot if it was true.

    Even the cheapest of modern bows are more accurate than the guy shooting it. My first compound was a PSE Nova. $199.95 including rest & sight. I still have it and it can shoot as accurately as my Pro Elite, but neither one is accutate if I don't do my part.

    So, I'm definitely sure that any of the guys you mentioned could take my Nova and beat most of us. This is especially true if they have a couple of weeks to set up & tune it.

    Sone of us mortal shooters might stand a chance if the pro had to shoot an extreme low brace speed bow. But still not too likely.

    The only way that I would stand a chance to beat one of the pros is to make a rule that they couldn't let down, but I could.

    DB, I read this story a couple of times. I don't know if its true or not. If someone knows him, ask him.
    I think most of the pros don't leave a bow they are going to shoot alone till they can drill with it and are happy. Change the bow and give them enough time and they will show us why they are pros and we aern't.
