Take Down Bow

by CEAnderson

I have a question regarding take down bows. I just started archery and I'm using a recurve take down bow, 60/40. The target block I and my son use is rated for 40#. To practice safely in the backyard, I'd like to use 30# limbs, will this affect my technique and how well I shoot if I switch between the two limb weights?


Thank you,

CEAnderson

Two Different Weights of Limbs Advantageous
by: Coach Zeober

Hello,

Actually you will benefit from practicing with a lighter draw weight providing your technique is correct.

It happens often (more often than I care to know) that new archers set themselves up for failure by purchasing a bow with a draw weight that is too high (over bowed).

There is no reason to suspect that your technique will be hampered in any way if you switch back and forth.

In fact, most of my competitive archers have two different set-ups. One set of limbs they will use for practice and competition and a light weight set that is used for learning and training proper technique.

It happens often that an archer will come to me who has been struggling with alignment issues, getting to anchor, holding or aiming issues.

Often times they are snap shooters, they are punching or they have target panic issues.

Almost always we can quickly resolve these problems by switching to a lower draw weight and teaching the archer proper skills that get them back in the game quickly.

I hope you find this information helpful and thank you for visiting Learn-Archery.com
