Learn Something about Compound Bows
Widely used in target practice and hunting is an instrument called a compound bow. Modern archery uses a compound bow to bend the limbs through the instrument’s levering system made up of cables and pulleys.
With the pulley or cam system, the user has a mechanical advantage, making the limbs of a compound bow much stiffer than that of a longbow or recurve bow. Compound bows are more energy efficient than other bows because of the less energy spent in limb movement due to its rigidity. Because of the higher rigidity and higher technology construction of the instrument, there is an improved accuracy, leading to a reduced sensitivity of the bow to temperature and humidity changes.
With the pulley or cam system of the instrument, you get an advantage of a let-off with the cams rotating as the string is drawn back. Because the cams are eccentric and not round, as they rotate, there is a change of their effective radius. There are two cams that feature a compound bow, one is the inner track and the other is the outer track. The inner track is connected to the opposite cam or limb through cables, and where the bowstring runs is the outer track.
