Thoughts on bows after the ATA
Why is it the industry has taken this long to address the riser torque from cable rods, cams, flexing risers, etc?
It seems a lot of companies are now jumping in to address this situation.
Bowtech: FLX Guard
G5: Ti Flex rod/Centroid cams
Darton: Curved cable rod
Mathews: Reverse assist roller
You can't tell me other bow engineers didn't know about this. At first I thought it was gimmick but after setting up and testing thousands of bows, I can tell you it's real and it makes a difference. Bows that address these problems are much easier to tune.
Why did it take this long to address this problem and why is it only a handful of companies are looking into correcting this problem?
I don't understand the concept of making a product "good enough" it will sell. I would want to build the best product I possible could.
Companies that continue to try to improve archery and educating the consumer are really helping the industry. Eventually, those that coast or continue the same-old, same-old will eventually find smaller sales figures.
I say thank you to the bow companies that continue to push the boundaries of bow development. It helps keep people interested in our favorite past time.
