Forgiveness

Long axled bows=forgiving and easily shot.
Large brace heights also equal forgiveness.

Has anybody shot any of these new almost oxymoronical bows they are making that shoot like 340 fps with a 6.25'' brace and 40'' axle? Are they forgiving, or does the microscopic brace negate the long axle length? And is the opposite of that spectrum also forgiving- i.e. 8.25'' brace ;30'' axle?

well some of these bows make that speed or close with 7 inch braces.The sts that almost come standard on these faster bows help with with people abilities and shooting forms.The sts is not a cure all for bad form,I wouldn't recommend bows with 6 inch braces for beginner's.I guess best advice would be to find a pro shop and shoot a couple of these bows and see for yourself what you think.

Short brace heights usually equal unforgiving bows. I say usually because the 6" brace height on the Hoyt Katera seems to work well as far as forgivness goes. You can achieve 300-310 fps with this bow set up with a hunting arrow. The Bowtech 82nd Airborne with its 6" brace height can achieve 330-345 fps with a hunting arrow but isn't near as forgiving as the Katera.

The elite line up GT0 500, Z28 will get up there in the 300's as well an pretty nice bows.I would say they would be very close to the HOYT and 82nd air borne.The PSE x force 7 inch brace height will get you into the 300's as well.

If I were buying a bow this year I and had unlimited money I'd go for an Elite or Bowtech...some models have amazing efficiencies and speed+forgivness. Bowtech seems to be the cutting edge of the big 5 lately, though.
Hoyt, what is this "sts" you keep talking about. Never heard the term used before.

Every Bow Manufacturer has problems. Mathews had the same limb issues a couple years ago with the "Thin Limbs". Bowtech has resolved theirs as well.

Only problem I have seen is with the Tomkat limbs. Had a 50# bow limg blow apart while sighting it in. Set up about 50 other bowtechs in the last year with no problems. Are they having the problems with the split limbs or solid?
