Chiming in..... ()

Tom
I really did mine a few years back. A famous bowhunter wrote an article on how to determine your max bow weight. His theory was that if you contorted your body into a really bad position and could still draw the bow, you were not overbowed. Being overbowed is a very difficult problem to spot, oddly. Anywho, guess what smatipants decided that was a stupid test (right so far), grabbed his heaviest 80 pound longbow with the view there were few bows he couldn't get back in any bad position, even though they were too heavy for him when it came to actual accurate shooting. Welcome to multiple years of bad shoulder pain.

Initially the problem settled down, and about 18 months later it was good enough that I figured I would give that stupid test another go. Can't actually remember how that reasoning went, but the results were a lot worse that time.

Yes there was a round three! All I can say is it seemed pretty reasonable at the time, and a lighter bow may have been used.

I figured I would need surgery, the problem just didn't go away. As it happens I have a friend who is a talented massage therapist, and he showed me how to release the trigger points for the rotator cuff problem, and I am back to handling whatever bows I want, though I am not going to try that test for being overbowed again...
