With shooting indoor, field or fita, you are also shooting a lot more arrows in a shorter period of time compared to 3D or hunting and having an easier holding, smoother and easier drawing bow makes a huge difference especially near the end of a round when your getting tired.
    I realize this and was trying to get the OP to give more thought in this area.

    Well as the OP, I understand all of the dynamics of a Target bow. But I used the term target bow as it is understood. I believe DssBB explained it well. I too would want a longer ata, less pounds etc etc. Yeah I could use my 32 ata bow for 3d. But target to me is punching paper.
