Compound bow specifics
Note: neither of us owns a compound bow, so we have a very limited hands-on knowledge on the matter. Still, we know whom to consult if you need help. Do not hesitate to ask us.
Cam – the eccentric wheel which allows for the draw force “let off”
Cable – connects the cams
Brush – a guide for the arrow which does not require an arrow rest. Instead, a circular opening with three sets of brushes holds the arrow in place. The fletching passes between the brushes.
Release – a small caliper-like hinge which attaches either directly to the string or to a fixed loop. A small trigger allows a quick release without rolling along the archer’s fingers.
