    In the Sept issue on the bow comparison you mentioned valley. I am not familiar with the term as related to a bow. What is it? Reference the range test and especially the DNA evaluation.

    Valley is the segment of the draw cycle starting when the cam starts to let off and ending when the bow reaches full draw (also called the "back wall"). A long valley lends itself to a smoother draw, but leads to a slower arrow speed. Archers who let the bow "creep" (don't hold it firmly against the back wall) tend to struggle with a shallow valley because the bow will exit the valley sooner and could cause the draw to exit the valley and the draw weight to ramp up dramatically all of a sudden.

      I wouldn’t spend that much on a 10/22 but I might on a bolt gun. For that kind of money I expect some style to go with it, of the Cooper or Annie level....
