How many less points would that guy have shot if he didn't have a bow with a shelf on that day shooting the same round.....???? :) :)
Making what you like is part of the fun of this game.
If we all did everything the same... :)

sweet... Arvin, is that a BBO in the pile?  If so, I'd like to know how it shoots for you.  I would think your preferred bow style would make a great BBO.   :OK
Seems like common sense isn't very common any more...

very nice, Arvin. I'm glad your bows are in demand. if the snakey one makes it to the podium,  just tell them   "form follows function"  and keep'em guessing >:D

Yes  Bob thatís that selfbow that had a horizontal crack in one limb. It shot a flight arrow 216 FPS . But that means nothing unless the arrow was to come out clean in a flight shoot. Thatís why I donít depend on the crono. The boo kept it alive for now.  Correction that crack bow was fixed with boo but that shot was made thru a bamboo backed , bamboo core and horn belly that I built. Arvin should not get on the internet before he fully wakes up. 😁😁 Arvin

I don't like shooting wood arrows for target, ,and carbon is stiff spined. My weight poundage is low  at my old age, so I cut the arrow shelves on my bows as deep as I can get away with.Tie the thinnest low stretch string I can , and can shoot a 600 spine full length carbon with a 100 grain head out of my self bows with good arrow flight at 10 gpp give or take. I also shoot a string nock which gives me 2 reference points. Each to their own ,but that is works best for me. Replica bows I cut no shelf, and no nock on the string. Self bows, or shelf bows bows what ever suits your fancy.
