Recurve Bows | Archery Equipment Online Store - Canada | Londero Sports
- A recurve bow is a bow that curve away from the archer when unstrung. Many indigenous peoples have employed the technique as their primary hunting method for thousands of years, and it has survived into contemporary use for sport and hunting.
- A longbow in its time just known as warbow in contrast to a hunting bow is a type of tall bow allowing the archer a fairly long draw. A longbow is not significantly recurved. Its limbs are relatively narrow and are circular or D-shaped in cross section. Flatbows can be just as long; the difference is that, in cross-section, a flatbow has limbs that are approximately rectangular.
- A takedown bow is a bow assembled out of a riser and two limbs to make a working bow when strung.
The primary advantage of the takedown design is that it can be transported in a much shorter case when disassembled. The secondary advantage is that an archer can change bow configuration by changing limbs.
The riser is the center where the archer holds the bow. The limbs attach to the riser.
