Anthony's scientific methods provide rigorous and comprehensive tests of  compound bows. This way the bows can be compared on dynamic efficiency,  speed per inch of power stroke, noise output and vibration. Each year  he compares mid—priced bows, flagship hunting bows and either youth or  women’s bows.
