When you get a new recurve bow, it is important to have the right settings. This step by step guide will help you make all of the necessary adjustments.
Step 1. To begin, remove the upper parts of a bow from the lower, mid-bar and mono-bar tendon. The top arm doesn’t have a label on older models but notice how the lower arm extends from the upper arm. Also, the top and bottom limbs are easy to find on new models, since they are marked as ” top ” and ” btm.”
Step 2. Place the carbon fiber sheet and align the tendon. It passes through the middle of the markers and the screw of the arm. The deviations can be corrected on adjustment screws of the middle part. This check may also be done if you have a throwing arm.
Step 3. Check the limbs: bring them back to the manufacturers if they are distorted, because distorted limbs can not be corrected properly.
Step 4. The arc’s shot should be fixed downward at a right angle on the chord arrows. If this does not place the arrows in parallel position to each other, the recurve bow is distorted. Please contact the dealer.
Step 5. Check the Tiller: the difference found between both measured values of the top and bottom limb. or each sinew and limb measurement. The difference between these two values in new sheets should be between two and four millimeters. The Tiller is about eight millimeters in older bows. If another measure occurs, reset the Tiller must according to rule.
Step 6. Now set the height of the stand, i.e. The distance to the bowstring from the lowest point. The travel length depends on the maker. Turn the tendon one upwards(See the manual for instructions). Keep turning in the opposite direction to shorten the bow.
Tip: When you shoot, you’ll notice the correct height. If the sheet vibrates loudly at the time of the test shot, the standing height is set up incorrectly.
The most basic setting of the recurve bow is achieved. Now it’s time to adjust the other of parts of a bow, for more info check out this guide to the parts of a bow.
Now the arrow resting on the arrow shaft, fletch and cam, will crop the arrow up. As the whole basis of the arrow, it will perform a unique role in the proficiency of the shot. This section describes what to look for when selecting the arrow shaft.
• The arrow shaft is mainly made from carbon, aluminum, or wood materials. Wood is almost exclusively used for longbows arrows. Aluminum arrows are light but bend quickly when missing. Carbon arrows are difficult to handle, but stable because of their firmness. Carbon fiber-containing aluminum arrows are very popular but very expensive because of the benefits of the aluminum and carbon combination.
• The correct arrow length and shaft length is determined by the shooter’s tightening length. The bow scale can help you find the traction. Select the draw weight depends on the material and length of the arrow. How well the arrow fits the bow is also important. Tools such as the Easton stem selector are available for control.
• The arrow rest on the recurve bow allows the arrow to be set in the button’s center. This motion is done through the contact fingers. The contact fingers should hardly go beyond the arrow.
• When the correct button setting is achieved, a medium-hard spring with a medium bias gives the button correct pressure.
• The button should be sufficient enough from the bow window. This depends on the style of the arrow at a particular distance. Values of three-fifths are recommended for aluminum arrows. Also one, two or four-fifths may be the right choice depending on the arrow.
Congratulations! The recurve settings can now function properly upon completing this last step.
