The different types of arc
First of all remember that there are 3 types of bows:
– The recurve: This is a removable bow, consists of several parts:
- A solid handle (the arc of the body)
- Two flexible branches and rope. It’s an arc that is easy to carry and suitable for all types of practices. The choice of a recurve bow will depend firstly on your size by choosing a more or less long arc; you are betting on stability and flexibility. Then in a second time, your choice will be influenced by your physical form. If you are new, you should not immediately choose an oversized bow. The recurve bow is the most used at the various Olympic competitions. You also have the option of adding a few accessories on this arc such as the arrow rest, stabilizer or viewfinder.

- Metal Arc: for people with a good level, it is a complete product, but that is not very flexible particularly at the branch level. This is usually on a metal arc that directs its choice during the first competitions. Its price is still accessible.
- Competition Arc: competition bows are often brands such as Yamaha Bows, Hoyt, Green Horn. Each arc element is sold separately (can mix).
