Here's what that experience taught me: A bow with a long valley may be more comfortable to shoot, but it also allows you to creep ahead, and that can destroy accuracy. Plus, a bow with a long valley will almost certainly be slower because of its less-aggressive cams. I'm far from a speed freak, but I've learned that 30 fps can improve accuracy and allow me to shoot a heavier arrow, which results in better penetration. You--like many, many bowhunters, including some very experience ones--may think you hate a short valley. But if you want to shoot better, I suggest you try one.
