The compound bow is the most used bow for hunting and competitive shooting. The compound bow uses a levering systems of pulleys and cables to bend the limbs. This gives the archer a mechanical advantage being the limbs are stiff compared to other bows allowing for more accurate shooting.
There are 2 types of traditional bows: Longbows and Recurve Bows. Longbows may be easier to shoot, but the recurve bow can be more accurate and have a point and shoot approach. A recurve bow has limbs that curve out the opposite way of the archer. The recurve bow stores more energy when pulled and delivers the arrow faster. The Longbow is an icon for traditional archery. The longbow is tall and its limbs are narrow giving it a circular shape. Many would consider the longbow to be easier to shoot. From a longbow you can expect faster speeds, performance and accuracy.
Benefits of a Longbow: Longbows are lighter, quick to prepare, quiet when shooting and less strenuous on your hand, great for hunting small game.
Benefits of a Recurve Bow: Shoot fast and straight arrows, more affordable, increase accuracy without the use of a sight, more challenging experience.
Traditional bows come with aluminum risers or wooden risers. An aluminum riser is known for it's strength and rigidness.
