Draw Cycle

The draw cycle of a bow plays a major role in our perceived enjoyment of shooting. It also keeps us going back to the practice range more often if we like shooting a particular bow. Since the draw cycle is independent of the grip I had each tester wear a glove on his bow hand to further protect the identity of the bows.
