Looking for a sweet compound bow for practice, hunting, or fun? We’ve combed the internet, looking for great deals on amazing compound bows. Before you jump to the reviews below, here’s what to look for when shopping.
Velocity: The velocity is how fast an arrow can travel from a bow at maximum settings. This means the bow must be set at max draw length and weight. Velocity is measured in feet per second.
Draw Length: Draw length affects how fast and far an arrow will fly when released. The longer draw length, the more power the arrow has behind it. Your draw length is determined by your arm length.
Draw Weight: Draw weight also helps to put more power and speed behind each arrow. The heavier the draw weight, the more power you get. However, more draw weight means the bow will be harder to draw.
Material: What is the bow made of? Bows can be made of aluminum, carbon, fiberglass, ABS, or a mix of these. Each has its own merits and downsides, so we picked a few made of each material.
Weight: Knowing how much your bow weighs is important, especially for hunters. If you’re going to be carrying the bow around in the woods on your back, you should know how much it weighs first.
Warranty: Warranties are designed to usually cover manufacturing and material defects in the product. This will save if the bow breaks from no fault of your own. It’s a little peace of mind to go with your purchase.
