Which encompasses making sure that your bow is fit to you which helps promote an environment that assures your form/technique are on point. It all comes down to one word... Mechanics!! Understanding the mechanics makes it easy to apply to any bow that is fit to you. This is why its possible to shoot accurately even if cables are in the way. You should be able to shoot accurately even if the bow is not the top of the line bow.

    SO THERE!!!
    So, there ya go, I was good with a crappy unfitted bow, just wait till I get warmed up with the XT

    But for those of us who do not nor neither will have perfect form then a forgiving bow will help us score better.

    Bow, its not about perfection. We as humans will never be perfect!! But you can get that form in check. Practice, practice, practice!!!! I have lots of tricks up my sleeve to help you y'all stay away from sloppy technique.

    Y'all know that I have been shooting casually for like 8 years. All along I have been working on my technique, and even to this day.. I cant say its perfect although it gets better every day. As long as there is continuous improvement we are all on the right path. Thats what its about continuously improving from one day to the next, and never giving up. Dont stop because you think that something is as good as it gets.. keep striving for the best. I had to contrive some interesting methods to keep my practices focused on form/technique and not hitting the center of the target all the time. That will come.. Like my southern brotha says... those pins aint going anywhere!!

    I agree that you should never be content with your form or shooting ability and you should always strive to be better. But changing equipment can improve your scoring sometimes.

    Now I am sure that DJ could shoot a PSE Nova (nothing against PSE here not bashing) better than I could shoot a Mathews Apex 7. But I can shoot the A7 better.

    Congrats on a great bow. It will step up your game, confidence (like you need more) and lower your scores.

    Good luck!
