Archery is an ancient sport that hasn’t lost a step, and bow technology reflects this: improvements are constantly made, and the bow of 20 years ago is built much differently than today in most cases. Choosing a bow for archery isn’t as simple as grabbing the first recurve bow kit that comes into view. First, there are three popular types of bow available, each with a drastically different design: compound, recurve, and longbow. Second, new archers need to find out what bow length and draw weight is appropriate for them. If joining a league or a class, find out what type of bow will be used. Armed with this information, buyers can make the best choice from a wide array of available bows.
