Default 99% Let off bow

I was watching some hunting shows and saw a 99% let off bow advertised.

What do you think,good bad.

It might help people that have shoulder or back problems keep or start bowhunting.

I think if it had a Bowtech, Matthews, or Hoyt sticker on it, they wouldn't be able to keep them on the shelves......[:'(]

I wouldn't want one but if that's what someone else wants to shoot I don't have a problem with it.

Default RE: 99% Let off bow

It would seem to me that if I bow could let off 99% of the weight, it would have to be nearly locked back... Which "I think" would mean there would have to be some sort of delay while the bow Rolls over... I'm not talking a long time, but half a second or so from time of release to the time the bow really kicks in... I could be wrong, but it would seem nearly impossible to cuta 70pound bow back to a hold weight of .7 pounds and still be able to have enough weight to roll over the cam or cams almost instantly... And if it did have any sort of delay I would think it would be ALOT harder to shoot...IMO...

Any one else have thoughts on this...??

There's nothing like that on the market, the only thing like that is the 24" Draw-loc and it's a 100 with the lock. I wouldn't even call that a bow, might as well shoot a crossbow.

Editor's Comments

















The "99" stands for 99 percent effective let-off. Despite the high let-off, the 99 was fast. It was, however, clunky.

Well if it helps those with disabilities keep hunting then it's a good thing. I doubt the "masses" would buy it.
However being able-bodied, I don't know if someone with a disability serious enough to limit them from using
a 65-80% let-off , would be able to pull it back to the let-off point? I would doubt that "holding" is the issue it's probably the initial pull.
