Fascinating and amazing. But, I must be a Luddite because I still shoot a recurve.

A compound doesn't need as much power to draw and once at full length it takes a lot less effort to hold than a regular recurve, in this I too must be a Luddite!

They require the same effort to pull back, but let off ~80% at full draw. I miss shooting my bow... I need to dig it out.

I haven't shot a bow since I was 9. We had these cheesy looking fiberglass bows at some sleep away camp. I do remember the safety protocols. As a kid there I'd look through the catalog from the company Consumers Distributing. They had lots of archery equipment including mostly compound bows and bladed arrows. I think they also had lawn darts.
