A bit of history
Archery is a precision sport as it consists of using the bow and arrow to shoot and aim at a target. Before the year 1500, this throwing weapon was mainly used for hunting and warfare. Since then, archery has become a hobby and a sport. The first competitions date back to 1583 and took place in England. This discipline was introduced at the Olympic Games in 1900, 1904, 1908 and 1920, but it will only be taken up again in 1972.
Choose your competition bow according to your discipline
There are different practices in competitive shooting, it can also be a departmental, regional, national or international level championship. Every time you shoot, you must choose your shooting equipment according to the regulations. In particular, the shooting distance, the size of the coat of arms or the authorized materials are variable and evolve according to the practice (outdoor shooting, 3D shooting, indoor shooting, field shooting, ski archery, horseback shooting, prehistoric shooting, Run Archery, Animal round, etc.).
During international competitions, archers can use different types of competition bow :
classical or recurve bow: the limbs, a string, a scope, a stabilizer, an arrow rest, a clicker and a berger button are mounted on the handle. It may be possible to reduce the vibrations by adding additional dampers. It is suitable, for example, for outdoor shooting and Olympic disciplines.
Barebow: As the name suggests, this bow is completely barebow. It is just equipped with arrow rest, berger button and a weight (for stabilization). The absence of a sight forces the archer to adjust his fingers according to the shooting distance. This throwing weapon is used for indoor shooting.
Compound or compound bow: the bow riser serves as a support for the limbs, pulleys, rope and two cables, scope, arrow rest and stabilizer. Sometimes it is also equipped with rope stops, dampers, cable spreaders and other accessories. This weapon is also suitable for outdoor shooting.
