Bows


Longbows

A longbow is a type of bow that is tall roughly equal to the height of the person who uses it; this will allow its user a fairly long draw. Longbows have been used for hunting and warfare, by many cultures around the world, a famous example being the English longbow, during the Middle Ages. A longbow is not significantly recurved, its limbs are relatively narrow so that is possible to receipt a good Dispersion.


Recurvebows
A recurve bow has tips that curve away from the archer when the bow is unstrung. A recurve bow stores more energy than an equivalent straight-limbed bow, potentially giving a greater amount of cast to the arrow. Since Beginning Recurve bows have been in use such the beginning of the Olympic games. Available in different models of wood, aluminium or carbon. Suitable for each age groups or constitutions.

Compoundbows

A modern bow that uses a levering system, usually of cables and pullyes, to bend the limbs. The limbs of a compound bow are usually much stiffer than those of a recurve bow or longbow. This limb stiffness makes the compound bow more energy-efficient than other bows. The use of this levering system gives the compound bow a characteristic draw-force curve which rises to a peak weight and then "lets off" to a lower holding weight.
