Affordable Traditional Archery Bows

Do not let the affordable in the title fool you into thinking these bows suffer in quality. Our traditional archery bows are a bargain for the excellent quality they offer. These archery bows are fantastic for the archer who is just starting to learn the ins and outs of a bow or for the experienced archer who needs a great bow on a modest budget. Some of these bows are historical designs that perform well even into modern times. Others are fantasy themed bows that are as functional as they are visually appealing. Every bow in this category is priced at a low, affordable cost. These affordable traditional archery bows also have a 1 year warranty that protects against breakage under normal circumstances, as well as craftsman or material defects. Another really good title for any of our affordable traditional archery bows is bang for your buck because that is exactly what you get: an excellent quality, fully functional bow that is not too hard on your pocket, either. How to Tell your Draw Length and Draw Weight: Your Draw Length measurement is how far back you draw the bowstring before releasing it. To find your draw length, stand and extend both arms out in front of you. Measure from your chest to the end of your middle finger and subtract 2 inches. This will find your approximate draw length. The draw weight determines how much weight in pounds that you will be using to pull back your bow at the specified draw length. For instance, if you choose a draw weight of 30 and have a draw length of 28 inches, when you pull the bowstring back to 28 inches, you will be pulling 30. Draw Weight is hard to determine if you are a beginner, so 30 is an excellent place to begin and is great for target practice. For hunting, a bow of 40 draw weight or higher is usually recommended.
