Check out this YouTube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLtTyh-5Xj8&feature=emb_logo). It has two archers shooting an indoor round, one using a €2000 bow and the other a €200 bow. (Guess which one wins!)
We did a similar test in Archery Focus, but that was a true test in that the same archer shot both bows. In our test, the wooden bow was problematic in that it didn’t have enough sight window cutout to allow for a correct centershot setting. Still the results with the cheap bow were not far from those for the vastly more expensive bow.
There is an old saying in field archery (“It is not the arrow, it’s the Indian.”) which points out the obvious. The archer is responsible for accuracy. All the bow does is to impart energy to the arrow. If it does that consistently, a great deal of accuracy is possible even from quite modest equipment.
You may want to save the link to share with young archers who are whining/whinging that their lack of new arrows (or a new bow, or a new sight, or a new . . .) is preventing them from achieving their goals.
One of the wisest things I have heard about equipment (and that is a pun because it was from Larry Wise) is that archery is about one third equipment, physical prowess, and mental ability . . . each. The physical aspects can be trained in and the equipment refined and tuned in leaving the mental part at about 90% of what is left for an archery performance.
Equipment is important. But a tuned wooden bow system is not vastly inferior to a tuned high end system.
Disclaimer I have a pet peeve in that youth archers are rushed into metal-risered bows that are too heavy for them to hold up through their shots so they spend years practicing “dropping their bow arm.” Sticking with a lower mass bow will lead to greater progress in young archers. Of course, they are “youngins” who can pick me up and press me overhead, and equally of course, they can shoot any weight bow they want, but most youths do not develop their deltoid muscles (aka bow holding up muscles) until they are 18 or so.
