  • Compound Bow Essay

    addressed. Mechanics Compound bows are made up of several complex systems of parts. First of all, the bow has the frame itself. The frame is made up of the upper and lower limbs, the limb bolts, the sight itself, the arrow rest, the grip, and the stabilizer. The string area on the other hand is composed of the Idler cam and lower cams, the peep sight, the nock, the wrist wrap, the cables and their respective cable rod and rollers, and the string itself intertwined into all of that. (See figure 1). Each component has a specific purpose within the mechanical system of the bow. The limbs and the limb bolts control the amount of pull or force the bow will have to draw. The sight and peep sight are for the aiming of the device. The arrow rest and nock are the location that the user places the arrow when ready to begin the process of shooting. The stabilizer reduces the noise and vibration of the bow when it is fired. The wrist wrap and grip go together in unison and allow the user to grip the bow as they are aiming. The cams, the cables, the cable rod and cable roller, and the string is the mechanical system that makes the entire bow work. As the string rolls the cams toward the user, the cables put tension on the limbs of the bow, and they compress to create the force required to draw the bow. Procedure and Maintenance When using a bow, it is important to remember that the first time you shoot will not be perfect. The bow has many parts, and it must be properly tuned to fire…
