When strung a recurve holds more energy
than a Traditional/Longbow
Harder to aim and shoot
No letoff

Shafts: Wood, Bamboo, Aluminium,


Carbon FIber

Draw Length determines the arrow


length
Poundage determines the Grain Per
Square Inch or Stiffness
Arrow Companies: Gold Point, Bear,
Alpine, RipCord, Scott, Hoyt, Martin

Fletchings Material:
Feathers, Plastic
Styles: Solid and
Feather

Broad Head: This broadhead is designed so that the blades can be replaced on the ferrule.

Field Point:Can be matched to the weight of big game broadheads that a hunter plans to use during hunting
season.
Blunt:May be used for small game animals such as rabbits and squirrels.
Bullet: Are designed to be shot into bag targets, foam targets, or grass-type targets
Judo: Are designed for field practice, and used while roving under simulated hunting conditions and selecting
targets such as leaves, stumps, or sticks.
Fish: Made of steel and designed to penetrate the hard scales of carp, gar, and other rough fish.
Mechanical: Blades are retracted close to the ferrule before the shot. Upon impact, the blades expand to
expose the cutting edges. These blades are recommended for use only with bows rated 50 pounds or more
because most mechanical heads require additional energy to open upon penetration.

Fixed Blades: Used by many traditional-style bowhunters and by bowhunters who are shooting bows with
lower draw weights

Targets:
Animals
Fake Animals
Paper targets
Competition targets
