Things You Need to Know
#1 Do you need a Right or Left Handed Bow?
Generally speaking if you are right handed, then you will shoot a right handed bow, or if you are left handed you will shoot a left handed bow. For some people though eye dominance will be the deciding factor, because hand and eye dominance are opposite.
You can tell what eye is dominant by one simple test. Place your hands out in front of you at arm’s length. Make a small triangle with your two thumbs and index fingers. Then, looking through the triangle, with both eyes open, focus on a object across the room. Now slowly pull your arms back bringing the triangle towards your eyes, when the triangle touches your face it be on your dominant eye therefore you will still see the object through the rectangle with your dominant eye and not your other one.
You can still shoot a bow opposite of your dominant eye, however you have got to be able to squint you other eye or everything you try to aim at will naturally go with your dominant eye, making it impossible to shoot with both eyes open. So now you know the facts and you make the choice to what type of bow you want to shoot.
#2 What draw weight do you want?
Most bows are designed with limbs that will vary in weight. Say you buy a 70# bow generally you can turn the bow down to 60#. Something you need to keep in mind about this is you want to get a bow where the poundage you desire will be the max or close to the max for that bow’s limbs. So say you want to shoot a bow at 64# you will be better off buying a 60# bow rather than buying a 70# bow and turning it down to 64#. The reason for this is the bow will be more efficient at the max weight of the limb. When you start backing the limb bolts out to turn poundage down you change the angles which effect draw length, let-off, hand-shock, etc.
#3 What draw length will you need?
A compound bow unlike traditional recurve or long bows, will draw back only a specific distance then stop. Also compound bows are designed to be shot from the full draw position. So if a bow is set-up to shoot at 29” it can not be drawn to 30” and shot. So we must have the draw length of your new bow set for your particular size. If you are not sure how to figure your draw length refer to the directions and illustration below. This way we can adjust your new bow precisely to fit you.
First stand with your arms out and palms facing forward. (Keep Relaxed and don’t Stretch) Now have someone else measure you from the tip of one middle finger to the tip of the other middle finger. (In Inches) Then simply divide that number by 2.5 and this will be your draw length.
Keep in mind that the majority of people shoot with a draw length that is too long. If you shoot a draw length that is too long you will have string slap (where the string slaps your arm, and that hurts), you will have trouble finding a good anchor point which leads to a very inconsistent shot (you will have poor grouping), also the string will come back and touch you face which can causes the string to roll off your face causing the arrow to move off to the side. “It is always better to be a little shorter than it is longer with your draw length”
#4 What let-off would you like?
A compound differs from a traditional bow in that when you reach full draw your bow will let-off. What this means is at full draw you will not be holding the full draw weight. The way this is measured is by percentage. Now days bows come with let-off that starts at 65% and goes up to 80% let-off. Most people choose between mid to high let-off. This choice is totally up to you and what you want. Be aware though that some states require a specific let-off so check with local laws in areas you wish to hunt before choosing.
#5 What type of fletching and configuration would you like?
With you Ready-to-Go Bow Package you get arrows. So you need to decide whether you want feathers or plastic vanes. You can even choose the new poplar NAP Quick Spins. This is totally a personal preference item and is up to you. Also along with choosing what type of fletching you must decide if you want Off Set, Right/Left Helical, or Straight Fletch configuration on your arrows. As always if you would like help in deciding we can discuss this when you call in, or you can email us.
#6 What is your desired option for releasing the string?
If you are planning to use a mechanical release, you have the option of either a direct-string release or a string loop release.
The bras nock set W/Cushion button allows you to directly place the release caliber on the string, while the string loop option allows you to place the caliber on the loop. Each system works fine, however the brass nock set w/cushion button tends to work better on longer axle-to-axle bows. The string loop protects the string from the abrasive affects of the release caliber. This is again a personal preference item, however most people choose the string loop.
#7 What type of peep sight would you like?
Your Ready-to-Go Bow Package comes with a peep sight installed. You will have the choice of a tube peep sight, such as the Line-O-Peep or a peep sight such as the Tru-Peep. Some of the peep sights come with different aperture sizes. This is an item in which we can go into more detail with on the phone or via email.
Note: We serve all of our peep sights in before they leave the shop to be delivered to you. This locks the peep into the string so that it will not move under normal conditions- while still allowing you to you to make some slight adjustments without the need to re-serve.
