Good post. TRUEOf course it is about money. Just like any of us if we were good enough to shoot at that level we would shoot for the company that pays the most sure. But we would also shoot for the company whose product we are able to shoot the most consistant to give us the best choice to end up on the podium.
I agree BUT,they will not switch if they think it will cost them a chance at winning.They may not like the bow they go to as well as what they are leaving but they still feel they have a good chance of winning with it."But the top guys are not going to switch to a bow they feel is inferior."
I understand where you are coming from , but I have to disagree. Many have done this for one reason or another. Mainly money.
I know a few pros personally and this discussion has come up.It is true,money talks but you know as well as I,winning pays more than not winning.Contingency money has forced many top shooters to jump ship.BUT,they do it with the assumption they can still win with the other brand,otherwise,what good would moving do.Yep, it does. Getting money for not winning is even better. Think about it. I have shot 38 up in this division and miss the shootdown
Very intelligent post Sir. Its between the ears that the money is earned.What I know about professional archery is little but I do know that in any sport there is something that sets one athlete apart from the next. What sets them apart is what sits on top of their shoulders or above the neck. In golf, tennis, or any other sport it all comes down to nerves! Each athlete has highly engineered equipment and amazing ability but it's the brain that separates.
Hm. I don't know why you just don't come out and say who it is. It's not exactly an unknown now that Braden showed up to the Utah Open shooting a C4. He still placed second to Reo shooting a Hoyt Contender Elite.(snip)
You will see some changes this year, with Mathews picking up a big dog or two from Hoyt. I know of one for sure. (snip)
