Which Compound Bow is more forgiving?

Question:
Which is more forgiving, a bow 38 to 40 inches long with a brace height of 7 1/4 to 7 1/2 inches or a short bow 30 to 32 inches long with a brace height of 8 to 8 ½ inches. Thank You. — Don Pfeffer

Answer:
That’s a great question and we will have to use an educated hunch to answer it because it is technically impossible to test forgiveness because it really depends on the shooter’s form. For example, if you bolt them all in a shooting machine they can all be made to shoot accurately. So the differences between bows are totally related to the human element. Having said that, we feel that brace height is a better indicator of forgiveness than axle-to-axle length. In other words, getting the arrow off the string quickly is more important than having a stable longer bow that resists torque slightly better. The most accurate bows, of course, have both stability and a moderately high brace height.
