    The Origin price was low in my opinion. Maybe they wanted to create a fanbase and build on it.
    I have shot both and have to say the edge suited me first end. Had to hand it back pdq as it was grouping so well.
    My mate paid hard cash for his and loves it. If a bow suits you the price will mean nothing over time. British shouldn't mean 2nd grade. Just a low marketing budget .
    Pro's will go to whom ever pays ...

    True, many Pros will contract with whichever brand has the biggest marketing/sponsorship budget & offers the most, but would like to believe there are some who won't shift out of loyalty or if the bows don't appeal to them.

    Good to see that someone on here actually GETS it.

    And while you may expect to see stuff being cheaper because our currency continues to crap itself in public, bear in mind that it also means a lot of the inputs and components to the product have just become more expensive.
    If you make something idiot proof, all that happens is someone builds a better idiot.

    Think of all that investment Mybo have made - CNC machines and the people to operate them and design products are not cheap. Yes I am sure Mybo could have made it cheaper by putting it out to China, but the quality would not be there unless you pay a lot more.

    Ironically the Origin was not taken seriously by some top archers around the world because it was considered too cheap and by definition could not be as good as their current bow that costs twice as much...." It's expensive with a well known badge so it must be good and nobody is going to question my choice".

    IMHO compared to the competition, in terms of build quality, finish and performance the Edge is cheap. This is not the 70's don't confuse British made with British Leyland.

    Is the edge faster than the origin - yes ask any of those shooting it at 90m on a cold windy day.
