a compound bow is shorter and uses pulleys to let the user holds the arrow back for long times. A Recurve bow is more like a typical longbow, with less power than a compound, and doesn't use the advantage of pulley's. you are constantly holding back whatever poundage the bow has, and poundage cannot be adjusted. poundage for a Recurve is around 40-60, and a compound has around 50-100 draw.
what is a crest recurve bow worth?
yes. it weakens the limbs and reduces draw weight. best to unstring the bow while in storage.
The general rule of thumb is that one inch of draw length will increase your speed by approximately 10 fps. This will vary from bow to bow and depends a lot on the draw length and poundage being changed.
The draw weight should be marked on the bow. You cannot go any higher than the marked draw weight unless your bow has removable limbs, then you could buy limbs with a higher draw weight. You will ruin the bow if you use it with a higher draw rate.
As the poundage implies, the bow doesnt go this low. But, if you did loosen the limbs up to said poundage, only a small amount of the bolt holding the limb on will be in the bow. This may cause the limbs to be town out of the bow when drawn, resulting in serious injuries.
A recurve is a type of bow, it is the type of bow they use in the Olympics it is probably the most commonly used as well.
You need to get your bow poundage and draw length measured, and arrows made to match. Never use wooden arrows in a compound bow, they will splinter during release.
Can you be a little more specific ? I need the length and poundage of the bow and then I can give you an answer, because they started back in 1963 and made that model for quite a few years.
Value = $150.00.
it has a weight lock on it to adjust the poundage you must unscrew the lock then tighten with the desired alan wrench
