Thread: Thoughts on bows after the ATA
01-25-2011, 10:25 AM #61
Do you guys really believe that in 30 years people will pick up today's bows and laugh like we do when we see a bow from the 80s? I really don't think so.
I think companies need to cool it on the R&D end and keep that money in their pockets so they can keep bow prices reasonable. I think the top of the line bow (naked) should not be more than $600.
Some companies have already proven that they have peaked. i.e. Bowtech and maybe more. One step forward and two steps back isn't progressProstaff of whatever DB uses.

I was actually around way back then. 200fps was considered a Fast bow, and 300 fps was considered unreachable by many.
Who would have thought that you'd see a riser made from hollow carbon tubes? And if your Bow wasn't capable of reaching 300 fps it would be considered slow?
Have you seen a Bow without limbs? It has been done! and you will probably see production on one in the next few years.
Plus the fact that Fast Bows now are So Quiet, and Vibration free compared to bows of yesteryear that were much slower.
I fully expect more changes to come. There is more to Bow Innovation than adding a dampener here & there. 375 IBO has already been reached in a prototype and maybe more.
Technology will Never stop it may go in a different direction but it will Not stand still!
