What else can you attach on your bow?
Sight – any device is fixed on the bow and improves targeting. The sight can be as simple as an adjustable pin and as complicated as electronic laser-guided systems with automated distance measuring.
Stabilizer – a thick metal rod which counterbalances the weight of anything attached above the arrow, such as visor, arrow rest etc. Furthermore, the stabilizer lowers the center of the mass of the bow, which allows for steadier aiming. Used by some hunters and most competitive archers.
Silencer – a fluffy bundle of soft fibers which is attached to the string of a recurve bow in order to reduce the sound of the impact between the string and the bow
Clicker – a small piece of metal which rolls above the arrow as it is being drawn. It is set in such a way, so that it will fall from the arrow when it is at the correct full draw, producing an audible “click”. The archer can then (aim and) release.
Kisser – used for Olympic archery, when the arrow is drawn at the level of the neck. The string touches the tip of the nose and the corner of the mouth. The kisser is attached to the string at the exact spot where the string contacts the mouth.
