Looking at the bows for nearly fifty years now, I would say the biggest advantage to modern bows is actually the no stretch strings. I use the modern strings on old bows and they perform right up there with the new one of similar design. You can fool with limb design/length/material, etc., and enhance performance, but design for design, there is little difference in my experience….and I have shot a lot of bows 8^).
