4 Best Traditional Archery Bows To Consider

Traditional Archery Bows

Choosing a bow from the extensive list of traditional archery bows can be quite daunting because every manufacturer is said to have the best of the best. What kind to buy? What draw lengths to consider? How do I know which draw weight is good for me? It can be quite confusing. Let us help narrow down your search.

First to consider is how much to spend. Traditional archery bows are typically custom made and anything custom made is going to be costly. Next, is draw length. To determine which draw length is right for you measure your arm span with your arms held wide open and measure fingertip to finger tip. Then, take that number and divide by 2.5. Let’s say you are a 6’0” man. So, your draw length should be around 28 ½ to 29 inches. It coincides with your actual height.
