Bows and arrows

Compound Bow

This type of bow uses a levering system of cables and pulleys to bend the limbs.
Eccentric cams reduce the load that the archer holds at full draw which means
they can be held in the aim longer allowing the archer to better compose the shot.

Compound bows are very efficient at storing and releasing energy which results

in very high arrow speed often over 300 feet per second.




The bow of legend traditionally made from a single piece of Yew is now more
often made using laminated strips of varying wood types but the archer still uses
the back of the hand to rest the arrow as in times past.  Still very popular across

all archery disciplines Longbows require great skill to shoot with consistent accuracy.



Recurve/ take down bow

Usually refers to a bow with two separate limbs that attach to a handle (called a riser)
used across all archery disciplines there are many variations.
