Tips to Choosing the Right Compound Bow
You may be searching for a bow because you want to roam the trails in the archery fields, scout the woods or even consider mastering the bulls-eye and ready to get yourself deeper. You would need to be sure that the set of wheels you invest in will serve you and hence you will not have to invest sooner in another. In a case you fall under the category, you would need to take your time to learn more about compound archery.
Terminologies such as stabilizers, limbs, cams, and wheels may overwhelm you and may make you think that archery is one complex field you should not try. In a case where one knows what to look for, he or she can have a very easy time investing in the right kit. In a case where you follow the guide, there are high chances that you will have easier time getting the right compound bow than saying “archery”.
Ocular dominance is one of the critical aspect one would need to consider when investing in a compound bow. Ocular dominance means that the brain tends to prioritize one of the eyes over the other. The brain is made in such a way that it tends to assume one of the eyes to be more correct than the other. In most cases, the dominant eye tends to be on the same side with one’s writing or most commonly used hand. However, there are some right handed people who tend to shoot left due to the fact that their left eye is the dominant one. It would be essential for one not to make an assumption about the dominant eye and consider doing a dominant eye test.
One would only need to put his or her hands at arm length and make a small triangular opening using the hands. One would then need to trace something like a doorknob through the opening on the hands. One would need to then close one eye and ensure that the hands nor the head does not change position. One would consider having someone assist him or her in making sure that one of the eyes is closed especially for people who cannot blink one eye closed. One would easily note that the doorknob stays in place when one is using the two eyes, one of the eyes but shifts position when he or she is using the other. In a case where you open both eyes and also move on to open of the eyes and the doorknob remains, you would need to know that the open eye is the dominant one.
You would need to consider your draw length which most archery stores can help you get it right. Among other critical aspects you would need to consider includes the draw weight and the axle length.
