What Is The Fastest Compound Bow? Luckily for me, you have already waged most of the battle of the compound versus recurve battle that is typically where most people start. Now that you have chosen to go this route, there are a few things that you need to decide. The first thing that you need to figure out is how you will be using your new bow. Will it be for archery purposes only, will it be strictly for bow hunting. Or do you want something that is good enough to satisfy the needs of both?
Next, you will need to figure out what draw weight and draw length you will need to be successful. What is let-off and how much of it do you really need? Are there any other specifications that you should be looking for during your search? Continue reading if you are interested in finding out where you should be looking.
First things, First
The first thing that you will need to figure out when you are determining. Which compound bow to buy, is its intended use. If you have done any searching thus far, then you probably already know that there are so many options to chose from in this market. I will let you in on a little secret; they all cater to a certain type of shooter. There are companies out there that make hunting specific bows that offer the shooter enough power to snag a black bear. There are also companies that make the most balanced archery bows on the market for target shooters. So you must ask yourself, “how do I imagine myself shooting this bow?”
If you imagine yourself shooting out of a hunting blind. Then weight is not going to be the biggest issue, but you might want something that is going to have a smaller axel-to-axel. If you want something that can be used in a tree stand you will need something that is lightweight and balanced to help you zero-in on that shot. Looking to shoot at targets? Make sure that you get a compound bow that is balanced, has smooth cams. And can accept the use of an archery bow sight.
Draw Weight and Draw Length
The next thing that you want to figure out in your search for your next compound bow are the specified draw weight and the draw length that aligns with your frame. I cannot express to you how important this step is to your success. If you choose a bow that is too light then you are not going to allow the arrow to reach its full potential. If you choose something that is too heavy. Then you will need a water break every 5-10 shots–if you can even take that many. Getting a draw length that is too short will not help your accuracy one bit. And a draw length that is too long won’t allow you to take the shot in the first place.
