Here is an answer to your question
I just competed in a 3d shoot last week October 16, 2011 with my 1982 Martin Cougar Magnum, getting 1st place in Bowhunter division.

I was taking 60 yard shots into the 8 ring with mine, and that was with no sights and fingers, no release.
My 1982 Martin Cougar Magnum is my pride and joy, it is a blazingly fast 189 fps with a 450 grain arrow.
I still think 3d shoots should have a Old School Division, using pre 1990 bows with Dacron strings and teardrop metal cables.
