Does speed matter in archery?
Today’s bows are so much better than those of the past. You can shoot these bows accurately at higher arrow speeds. Today’s broadheads, with their diminished blade surfaces are also more accurate at high arrow speeds.
What is the most efficient bow design?
Generally speaking composite recurve bows are a more efficient design. When drawn and released they transfer more stored energy to the arrow resulting in more speed at the same draw weight.

The faster an arrow travels, the flatter the flight trajectory and less deviation from wind. Recurve bow arrows can travel up to 225 feet per second (fps) or 150mph while compound bow arrows can travel up to 300fps (200mph). Longbow arrows travel slower due to the weight of the arrows.
What makes a bow fast?
The longer the draw length, the longer the effective powerstroke. This factor, as well, will make the bow propel the arrow faster and more powerfully. This is due to the arrow’s increased “string time” with the bowstring during the shot phase. Why this longer string time becomes a problem boils down to bow-hand torque.
