Post Archery Equipment - Choosing the Keys to Success
Archery Equipment - Choosing the Keys to Success
by: Grady McGraw

There are several reasons why you may want to take up archery. Maybe you took archery in gym class and enjoyed it. Maybe you want to join the archery team. Perhaps the tale of Robin Hood sparked interest in the sport. Maybe you would like to go hunting but don't want to use a gun. No matter what your ambitions are, you are going to need archery equipment to practice with. One important piece of archery equipment you will need is a bow. When choosing a bow, it is important to buy one that matches your skill and comfort level. This is why it is very important to try as many different types of bows as possible. There are several different types, but the most popular ones are the longbow, recurve bow, compound bow, composite bow, and cross bow. Long bows are longer than normal. The added length allows the arrow to travel further. It is also light weight and stable. The recurve bow allows for more spring force when drawn and is commonly used by Olympic and sporting archers. The compound bow uses a levering system composed of cables and pulleys. The bow is energy efficient and insensitive to temperature changes allowing for greater accuracy, velocity, and distance. The cross bow sits sideways on a frame and the limbs can be pulled back mechanically. Because it has a rifle like body, the shooter can carefully aim short arrows.

Once you choose the right bow, the next important piece of archery equipment you will need is arrows. Wooden arrows are the cheapest kind and mostly used for beginners and men longbow competitions. They tend to warp and break easily. If you plan to be doing a lot of hunting, you may want to purchase fiberglass arrows. Fiberglass arrows can be fitted to draw weight and length and are consistent and reliable. These also tend to break easily. If you are going to be hunting big game or entering tournaments, use aluminum arrows. Although they are expensive, aluminum arrows are durable and come in a wide range of sizes. The most expensive type of arrow is carbon composite. These arrows are used by serious hunters and archers who want speed durability and efficiency.

After you find the right type of bow and arrow, you can purchase other archery equipment. You can purchase a case for your arrow and bow, arm guards, or a silencer. There are also additional accessories you can buy to fit your needs. Good luck and have fun practicing archery.
