    Trad vs Compound Reload question?

    Something ive often thought about is the reload speed of a tradition bow compared to a compound.

    I'll explain more and maybe this is a no brainer, but what im refering to is how quickly one could shoot a dozen arrows at a target with a trad bow opposed to a compound bow, which is faster?

    and has anyone tried it and how long would it take you to draw, shoot, nock another arrow, draw and shoot again? For me to do this with my compound setup wouldnt be what id call quick, ta Doz

    I have both and when the arrows were put in the ground in front of me, the difference between both was very little. I have done this a few times and sometimes the trad won others the compound.

    I think it all comes down to learning to noc with finger feel and not by looking as done in the days of old.

    When it comes to reloading, a trad bow is definitely faster than a compound bow hands down especially if the trad bow is a horse bow. Take a look at the video below.

    WOW. Now I'm impressed. Lets see someone do that with a compound and release aid! LOL
    If you don't do it, you won't do it, and if at first you don't succeed, it's more than likely because you're crap at it.
