This past month's Field & Stream magazine has a really good article that addresses some myths and misconceptions about bows. 3 guys took either 4 or 5 top ranked bows and put them through rigorous testing as to the effects of longer vs shorter, longer or shorter stabilizers, fall away vs biscuit rests, brace height(this was especially interesting) effects of bow length on ease of draw, etc. I looked on their website for the article but couldn't find it, my magazine got tossed by mistake. Perhaps those of you not electronically challenged like myself(that would be everyone) could find it there, or look at a news stand for a copy. Best bow test I've seen where the effects of the different components are compared.
