Frequently Asked Questions

Why are our bows so special?

Every bow we produce is lovingly hand crafted by our team of experienced bowyers. All of our bows come with a high quality Dacron/Fast Flight string, waterproof soft bow case, and one-year warranty.

Each style of bow is available in a variety of sizes ranging from extra small to extra large. The size of the bow you need to order will vary depending on your draw length. The description of each bow model will include the sizes it is available in, as well as the exact dimensions of each size.

Fiberglass or laminated bow?

Bows

In horseback archery it is recommanded to get familiar with two types of bows, before we make our change.

Fiberglass bows:

Fiberglass bows are somewhat cheaper and their material composition is simpler than laminated bows. Their weight is somewhat heavier than laminated bows, which is why they are somewhat slower. We recommend fiberglass bows primarily for children, because minors can outgrow them sooner. At the same time, these bows can also be ideal for beginners and amateur athletes whose main goal is not to compete, but to get to know the sport and to learn excellent archery technique.

Laminated bows:

We recommend laminated bows to competitive athletes with serious ambitions who like higher quality, fast and light bows. Today, bow production is so advanced that even with a 27 pound laminated bow we can achieve excellent results from a distance of 50 meters. If you use a light arrow (e.g. made of carbon), you don't even need to raise the aim at the moment of the shot in order to hit the target straight from 50 meters.

Why are personalized bows beneficial?

Standard, pre-made bows are most often found on the market, but they are not necessarily beneficial for everyone. The world's top horseback archers also use customized bows in horseback archery championships. Although it is more difficult to find a bow manufacturer who can make a customized bow at a reasonable price and in a short time, this solution is much more rewarding and effective in the long run.

At first, we might not even think about how many aspects we need to take into consideration in order to choose the most ideal bow for us. Once we have decided whether we want a fiberglass or laminated bow, it is worth keeping in mind the following points: draw length value (inch (col): "), determination of bow pound (#) strength, grip type, etc. It is worth consulting with your coach to choose the right bow.

How do I determine what poundaged bow would be suitable for me?

Poundage: Unit of weight and drawing force. Most of the bows we sell are measured at 28".

1 pound (#) = 0.45 kg

General poundage (#) for horseback archery:

The poundage is affected by our draw length. Keep in mind that these statistics mostly refer to the three-fingered Mediterranean (Hungarian) archery technique.

• We absolutely do not recommend bows stronger than 15-20# between the ages of 6 and 12, as this can lead to damage in the shoulders and joints, as well as deformation of the spine.
• For ages 13-15, 18# and 22# bows may be ideal.
• From the age of 15, even up to the age of 99: for this category it is worth separating women and men. Women usually order bows in the 18-27# range, while for men this number is in the 20-30# range.

The determination of the poundage of the bow can be influenced by many aspects (e.g. body structure, physique, how regularly we train, etc.). It is best if everyone consults with a competent coach about this personally, and it is even better if we can try a few bows of different poundages, as that way it is easier to determine what we need. We should never start from the example of the champions, who train several times a week, or who already have several bows, or perhaps, thanks to their body structure, they are able to draw even a bow with a greater
poundage. If we choose a bow with too many pounds, we can quickly destroy our shoulders and joints.

The poundage (#) of the bow at the draw length:

For example, let's say a woman - whose draw length is 32" - wants a 22# bow. This bow will have a poundage of 30# at the draw length value. Why?

1. Given the value of the basic draw length of the bow: 28", and we know the value of the woman's draw length (32"). Consider the difference between the two: 4 inch.
2. Multiply this value (4) by 2, because 1 inch ("") gains roughly 2 pounds (#) as we pull further. The result is 8 pounds.
3. Add 8 to our ideal poundage bow (22# according to the example) to get the number of pounds we will draw at 32", which is 30# according to the example.

What type of grip should I choose for a bow?

The choice of grip can also be influenced by the shooting technique. For the three-fingered Mediterranean (Hungarian) technique, for example, it is worth choosing a more rectangular grip, while a rounder grip may be the winning choice when practicing the Persian technique.

In the case of customized bows, with some bow manufacturers we can even ask for extra lead weight (between 75-200 g) in the grip. There is usually a separate cost for this. The extra weight can dampen the unpleasant vibrations of the bow, as well as enable us to hold our bow more stable at the moment after the shot. This extra weight does not necessarily affect our loading, you can quickly get used to it.

Why could bows break easily?

1. When stringing the bow, the recurve v of the bow touches the ground.
2. When stringing the bow, the upper limb is not only pushed, but also strongly twisted.
3. When stringing the bow, only one limb is bent excessively.
4. If the string is released several times without an arrow.
5. If the tip of the arrow hits the limb above the grip several times in a row.
6. If there is a harder object (e.g. saddle, tree branch) in the way when releasing the string and our bow hits it.
7. Extreme weather conditions can also affect the material of the bow. (E.g. leave it inside in a warmed-up vehicle, leave it outside in 40 degree heat in the sun, but the cold can also affect the durability of the material, etc.)
8. Most of the time, the bow breaks during transport. (E.g. they slam the car door on the bow, step on it, hit something with it, etc.)
9. It can also break due to a factory defect (e.g. bad gluing or use of inappropriate glue). But these cases occur in a very small percentage. If a bow is truly defective from the factory, it usually becomes apparent upon first use, or at the latest within 1-2 weeks.
10. If someone orders a bow with too much poundage (eg 80#). For very powerful bows (e.g., 60#), we can no longer provide a warranty.
11. If someone uses a string that is not suitable for the bow.

Of course, we also provide a guarantee for our bows. In the case of damage to the bow, we always ask for a photo from the customer, based on which the manufacturer can determine what could have caused the bow to break.
