Advantages of Using Compound Bows over other Bows In a compound bow, pulleys are used so that force is multiplied to the arrow. Usually, when the bow is full draws, tension in the archer’s arm increase, but not with the compound bow because of the pulleys that help to release this tension in the arms. It then makes it easy to hold the arrow in a firing position. With recurve or longbows you will not be to make a good shot under full load, whichyou can do with a compound bow.
Another advantage of the compound bow over the recurve or longbow is that you will be able to adjust the draw strength of the bow which cannot be done with both recurve or longbow since they already have set draw strength when fully drawn. If you need to adjust the draw strength of your compound bow, you simply need to change the pulleys and cams on the bow. With these adjustments, different people can use the same bow by simply changing the settings based on the size and strength. You can have this advantage if you are using a compound bow.
Another great advantage of using a compound bow is that it is much powerful than a longbow or a recurve bow. It is very advantageous to be able to adjust draw strength of the compound bow. It can be easier for an archer to hold an arrow in the ready position for a longer time and take a steadier aim at the target because of the possibility of releasing tension brought about the by the cams used in the pulley assembly.
Compound bows are much shorter than good recurve bows and this gives a hunter plenty of advantages. The advantage of having a short bow is that it does not easily get entangled in the undergrowth which makes a lot of noise if you are trying to loosen your bow from it. A short compound bow will not expeirnec this entanglement and so you don’t frighten your prey with the noise of the undergrowth which makes for a better hunting opportunity. And this is the reason why most game hunter s have shifted to the compound bow from recurve bow because of these advantages that you cannot find in the others.
