I watched an interesting video today that mentioned how some companies want their engineers to design their product so they don't last as long as they possibly could. For example: My friend has a buddy that is a mechanical engineer that designs dentist chairs, and was asked to redesign a chair so that it only lasted a fraction of the time that it could have been designed for. By doing this, the dentist offices are forced to buy new chairs more often. This got me thinking about archery, and brought up an interesting question; are bow companies paying their engineers to not only design a high performance bow, but to also design them so that they don't last as long as they could? What do you guys think?
