Something to Learn about Compound Bows
Compound bows is an instrument that is used widely in target practice and hunting. A compound bow in today’s modern archery uses a levering system usually made of cables and pulleys to bend the limbs.
With the pulley or cam system, the user has a mechanical advantage, making the limbs of a compound bow much stiffer than that of a longbow or recurve bow. As less energy is dissipated in limb movement, there is rigidity produced that makes this compound bow more energy efficient than the other bows. The bow has an improved accuracy brought about by the higher rigidity and higher technology of the instrument, thereby even if there is a change in temperature and humidity, the bow is less sensitive.
Another advantage of a compound bow brought about by its pulley or cam system is the let-off, when the string is drawn back, the cams rotate. Since the cams are not round but eccentric, there is a change of their effective radius as they rotate. A compound bow has two cams which features two tracks, and these are the inner track and the outer track. The inner track is connected to the opposite cam or limb through cables, and where the bowstring runs is the outer track.
