How to Choose Bow for Beginners

Choosing a bow and arrow is very important for you to start your own journey. So I would like to present to you the main factors that you need to understand carefully before buying. This post will help new members choose the arc but do not know where to start.

How to Find Your Right Bow

1 – Determine the line you want to select

There are 3 main lines: Compound bow (3 strings), Recurve bow (1 string), and traditional bow (longbow, Manchu bow, Turkey bow, Korean bow, Mongol bow …), each has different advantages and disadvantages. You have to know which bow you love, each line is a different shooting technique, for example, the bow compound shot with pincers, the recurve is the tab and the tradition of shooting with rings, all 3 types also have many similarities, will It doesn’t matter if you want to experience all 3, but I recommend that you specialize in a certain line.

2 – Determine the purpose of the shot

In the main bowlines, the bow is divided into target bow and hunting bow, so depending on the purpose you use, you will choose the bow according to your purpose, of course, the bow target is hunting or vice versa. otherwise, it is okay but will not achieve the desired effect because of design, power, length, weight…. There are differences between these two arcs so you will not get maximum performance if used for different design purposes. Can still shoot, but I do not recommend it.

In addition, the accessories attached also decide whether you are shooting a bow target or hunting (sight, arrow rest, stabilizer, plunger….)

3 – Determine the price you want to invest

The decisive factor for choosing a supplier is the price of money, the bow and arrow currently has a lot of money, many new friends will be “ghostly imported” in the matrix of the bow and arrow types cost as well as the supplier.

Currently, bows and arrows are priced from 2 – 3 million to 100 – 200 million, but depending on the supply line and economic conditions you can choose for yourself the most suitable bow and see if you are suitable for the line. that bow? Buying inappropriateness will be costly. I give you 4 price ranges (below photo) for you to refer to, for novices should buy level 1, with a little more conditions, level 2 will have a better bow so you can quickly improve your level. and practicing good techniques, after playing well and practicing all the basic techniques can be gradually upgraded.

4 – Determine body index

The advantage of the compound is that it can adjust the bow parameters in terms of length and firing force, so it won’t be too much of a problem if you shoot the compound.

For the recurve, the parameter is fixed, so before choosing the bow you must know how much you match the bow force and whether the bow length matches your arm span?

The basic design of the recurve bow is that the target is usually 66.68.70 inches long and can be fully attached, and the hunting is usually 52 to 64 inches in length and light in weight, minimal for movement, so it cannot be mounted. For many items, some lines do not attach anything.
