I think that some bows do actually let you by with more than others which may mean one is more forgiving than the other. I know that for me I will be shooting my Darton Rampage at lets say 40 yards for instance,I will say ooops everyonce in a while due to a bad release or follow through and its amazing how that arrow funnels down into the group. I know that if I had made the same mistake with my Maverick that same arrow would have been an inch or 3 left or right. This may sound a little confusing but I think most of you know what Im talking about. Just my own observations!!
