TRUE CENTER SHOT ARROW PERFORMANCE

All of our bows handle and riser are cut to center shot. This means that the arrow passed through the handle directly on the thrust line of the bow string eliminating "Archers Paradox" The phenomenon of the archers paradox occurs on bows with little or no arrow rest. The arrow actually points in a direction slightly offset from the target. When the arrow is released it arches around the bow finding the thrust line of the string and oscillating in the process. The arrow continues to oscillate until it reaches the target. This force imparted into the arrow by contacting the handle and the oscillating spends precious arrow energy and therefore reduces arrow speed and accuracy. A slower arrow means more arcing and less flatness in flight. Additional handle riser offset, built into the bow, provides extra strength and ridgidity and allows  the arrow to pass through the center thrust line of the limbs without adding torque from a weak riser cut-out. The net result is faster, calm, and steady arrow flight. Watch proof of this concept by Greyarcher1
