Buying Considerations

Choosing a bow largely comes down to personal preference, but there are a few key considerations that will help you get the right fit.

  • Axle-To-Axle: Many hunters prefer a lightweight bow with a short axle-to-axle (ATA) length to help maneuver the bow through the woods, in and out of treestands, etc.
  • Draw Length: You can find your ideal draw length at home. Start by measuring your �wingspan��stand with your arms fully extended on each side and measure across your body from one middle-finger tip to the other. Take that figure and divide it by 2.5, and you have your draw length. Be aware, a draw length that�s too long or too short will adversely affect your accuracy.
  • Draw Weight: Some shooters are tempted to choose a heavier bow to increase power, but comfort is key. Choose a draw weight that takes about 75% of your strength to shoot�this will help you stay on target and avoid fatigue. Draw weight really comes down to the individual�experience, strength and personal preference are key.
  • Speed: The standard speed for modern compound bows is around 300 FPS. All IBO speeds are calculated according to the exact same standards: 70-pound draw weight, 30-inch draw length and 350-grain arrow weight. Keep in mind, unless your bow meets these exact specifications, your actual speed will be less than the featured IBO speed.

Quick Tips

Brace yourself: A 7-inch brace height is standard, but don�t be afraid to go shorter�you�ll actually get more speed and the same accuracy.

Speaking of accuracy, if it�s not quite where you want it, try shooting without a grip. Going �gripless� is just the adjustment some shooters need.
