Learn all about the advantages of the compound bow

Also called a "compound bow", the compound bow designates a specific type of bow, which differs from the straight bow and the classic bow by the singularity of its design. The compound bow owes its name to its design, based on the use of a system of cams (recognizable by their oval shape) and pulleys (identifiable by their circular shape) to propel the arrows with more power than all other types of bows.

By tensioning the ends of the bow, this system of cams and pulleys allows the archer to maintain his shooting position for longer, in order to restore maximum power to the arrow. The latter is thus propelled at a greater speed than with any other type of arc.

The compound bow is the type of bow offering the highest shooting speed. It owes this speed to its cam system, allowing archers to draw their bow to the maximum with minimal effort. They can therefore repeat the effort a large number of times in a short period of time, which makes the compound bow particularly efficient.

The shooting speed of a compound bow, however, varies depending on the type of cam used. Compound bows with hard cams shoot faster than models with soft cams.

Compound bows also prove to be very advantageous due to the stability they provide to shooters. This stability comes from the parallel arrangement of their branches. The force deployed is evenly distributed from one end of the arc to the other, which helps reduce recoil when shooting.

Compound bows are also equipped with an arrow rest, the role of which is to ensure better balance for the arrow when aiming. In addition to the arrow rest, most compound bows are also equipped with a sight, allowing greater precision when shooting. Due to the power it is able to deliver and the speed at which its arrows are propelled, the compound bow is the most popular type of bow for hunting and sport shooting. It guarantees high-level performance for professional archers, and allows bowhunting enthusiasts to be efficient and precise with each of their shots.
