It's because archers are willing to pay that much.
It drives me crazy. And it isn't just archery. It's anything you do. Everything has become a "specialized" activity. 12 year olds need batting gloves for both hands, sliding shorts, team specific cleat colors, a matching bat bag, and a $500 bat. What the hell? I never used batting gloves in my entire career!
I purchased a new release last fall. The guy at the shop kept trying to convince me that I needed to try the new "thumb release". I kept thinking "this is so stupid!". I had a heck of a time finding something to replace my old release -- they don't make anything basic and simple anymore.
Look at rests -- are you kidding me? The selection is outrageous.
And sites.....my goodness....sites are a joke.
you can't even get a quiver without spending $50.
good luck. Every sport we participate in has become an expensive specailty...
Too many managers manage by what the postgame press conference is going to be.
