How to choose a block bow
Despite the fact that round blocks are the slowest, they continue to be the most accurate and silent. Such tools are easily tuned and vibrate little. The most round block is suitable for shooting at fixed distances. However, the arcuate flight path of an arrow shot from such a device prevents it from being particularly popular with hunters. Soft blocks have all the advantages of round, and still generate enough speed for hunting.
Hard blocks give the boom high speed, but their tendency to broach the bowstring leads to failure settings. With such a block it is more difficult to shoot accurately, it is more noisy and needs particularly careful lubrication. Most of all this type of instrument will suit an experienced archer, for which the speed outweighs the inconvenience associated with concentration when firing.
A single is a simple round and hard block. The tool is easily adjusted as it is supplied with the only turning block.It is silent and allows you to achieve the same speed as when shooting from a double block.
Also pay attention to the handle, because the performance and functionality of the bow will depend on its design and shape. A concave handle that allows you to achieve greater speed by reducing the base, that is, the distance between its center and the string, can be easily distinguished by bending. It is opposite to the direction of curvature of the shoulders.
The curved handle, unlike the previous one, repeats the curvature of the shoulders. Such a design, increasing the base, transmits a lower speed to the arrow, but it allows to increase the accuracy of the arrow. The straight handle is closer in its characteristics to the concave, however, its bend is less pronounced. She doesbowscomfortable and fast.
The material from which the handle is made has almost no effect on the accuracy, durability and performance of the bow. Cast handles are heavier and thicker than stamped ones, but the latter, due to their lightness and smaller diameter, are convenient for most hands.
