It’s always time to work on your archery shooting. Here is a reminder about low-poundage compound bows.
Spot on advice for compound bow users who have a low-poundage set up. I have a 23″ draw length and pull 50#’s on my compound bow. In my initial set-up I went with a lot of advice from my male archer friends. Most of them have significantly longer draw lengths and pull 70 and 80 pounds on their bows. I was getting little penetration out of my arrows and the velocity was so slow that I was luck to make a shot at 30 yards. I consulted my bow-tech and did a little trial and error shooting. Yes, I did spend a lot of money on items that weren’t quite right for my low-poundage/draw length set up, but the end result is a rocket-launched arrow out of my compound.
My bow set up:
- Mathews Jewel – 23″ draw length. 50# draw weight.
- Rip Cord drop away rest
- Spot-Hogg bow sight
