People prefer using compound bows since they are easy to carry, manipulate and adjust. They are easy to carry due to the fact that they are short and also made from metal alloys which are light in weight. Despite the fact that other bows can also be adjusted but the problem is that they take a long period of time to adjust. In addition, getting used to adjusting string and limb is hard in other bows which tend to be long. This is different from compound bows as adjusting them is one of the easiest tasks.
People also prefer compound bows since they are manageable within an enclosed area. This is important as the archer will not need a lot of moving space to load, aim and fly an arrow. The disadvantage with long bow is that you will not be in a position to use it properly in an enclosed quarter since it requires a lot of loading space. This makes the compound bow to be convenient as transporting them is also very easy.
The advantage of compound bows is that you don’t need specific type of climate to use them. Their usage is wide to many climates because if the strong metal alloys that it is made from. Apart from that they are not even affected by bad weather like rain being that they cannot even rust and this makes them to last for a long period of time. Compared to woods that tend to expand or become brittle in case of any slight change in temperature and humidity. As a result, it may interfere with the tension of the bow which make it inaccurate. Not only that wood also needs regular maintenance and replacement which is costly.
Archers also prefer compound bows because of the accurate shots and consistent pulling strength. Flying an arrow is something that needs accuracy which can only be achieved by using compound bows. This is primarily because it is built with cables and pulley systems that gives it that strength. With inconsistency in other types of bow you will make inaccurate shots. They also differ in speed as compound bow tend to be a little bit faster than the others.
Another advantage of using compound bows is because they are cost-effective. You find that you may spend a lot of money in buying the compound bow but in the end, you will realize that you are saving a lot of money. Compared to other types of bows they are durable and long lasting. This means that it will take you a long period of time before you replace it. With wooden bows you will spend a lot of money since they require regular maintenance.
