Here are the six things to look for when shopping for our new favorite recurved bow.
Total Length: How long is the bow from tip to tip? This is important to make sure you’re getting the right sized bow for you. To find the proper length, you’ll have to also check out the draw length.
Draw Length: Draw length is how far back in inches you should draw the string back to get the max out of your bow. Draw length is based on your arm length. So the longer your arms, the longer the draw length.
Draw Weight: How much power does it take to draw back the bow to the draw length? This stat will help you to know if you are strong enough to pull back the string and shoot it properly.
Material: What’s the bow made of? Most recurve bows will be made of plastic, carbon, aluminum or aluminum alloy, or other metals. Sometimes they are also a mix. Materials help to balance cost vs. durability.
Weight: How much does your bow weigh? This stat is really important if you plan to hunt. Carrying a bow on your back can be heavy work, so make sure the bow isn’t too much for you.
Warranty: Warranties usually cover manufacturing defects, material defects, and sometimes more. This icon will let you know how long your bow is covered for. We measure in years.
