Get a grip on bow torque

In layman’s terms, torque is defined as a rotational force or the twisting of an object. While there are some cases where more torque is desirable — such as the output of your vehicle’s engine — the handle of your bow is NOT one of them.

Be ready for field repairs

Every bowhunter’s worst nightmare is to have equipment issues in the field. Regular maintenance can greatly reduce the chances of this happening, but there is always a possibility.

The case for arrow rests

One of the most important components of any archery setup is the arrow rest. The rest serves not only to guide the arrow, but to hold it before the shot. It is the last point of contact between the arrow and the archer during every shot cycle, and as such, I feel it is the most important factor after the bow itself and the arrow.
