If you are serious about archery, you need to buy a quiver. You can place your arrows on the ground while shooting, but this is asking for back pain issues. Bending over 30 times to grab your arrows, is not great for your back. Archery is a taxing sport for your upper back, so you need to be extra careful. While shopping around for a quiver, you might notice that there are a lot of options. There are hip-mounted quivers and back-mounted quivers. Some quivers attach to your belt, while others come with a separate belt. If you have never worn or used a quiver it can be quite difficult to choos ..read more

Something a lot of new archers forget to buy is a case for all your gear. Although this might seem more of a convenience item, it's very important to buy a case. A bow case not only allows you to easily carry all your gear, it also protects it during transport. It might be quite difficult to choose the right bag when you are just getting started. You simply don’t have the experience to easily choose between all the different options on the market. Therefore, I will explain what you should consider while buying your first bow case. I will first discuss the difference between compound and recu ..read more

Buying a bag or case for your compound bow

1y ago
A compound bow is an expensive and vulnerable piece of equipment. That’s why it’s important to store all your gear in either a well-padded bag or protected case. A normal backpack or bag will not suffice. Most bags will not fit a compound bow and do not provide enough protection. So, if you haven’t bought a bag or case for your compound bow yet, I urge you to do so. It will not only protect your bow, but it’s also much more convenient when you take your bow and gear to the archery range. There are a ton of different bags available, which can make it difficult to choose. Therefore, I have wri ..read more

Brass vs tied-on nocking points
ImproveYourArchery.com
by Tim van Rooijen
1y ago
Every bow should be set up with nocking points or nock locators as they are often called. But as you probably know there are two options brass nocking points crimped on the string and nocking points tied on with serving wire. But which one is better? I will discuss this in detail in this article. For most archers, tied-on nocking points are the better option. Tied-on nocks are more secure, cheaper, lighter and you don’t need proprietary tools. Brass nocking points are only the better option if you are frequently moving your nock locator. Although tied-on nocks are the better option for most ..read more

Most modern bows have an arrow rest, which is a small device that holds the arrow in place until the arrow is shot. Advanced arrow rests are highly adjustable and need to be tuned properly.
