Recurve Bow

Recurve bows are considered the traditional bow for archery – they are actually the only bows allowed for Olympic competition. A recurve bow is built in a much simpler manner than a compound bow, without any mechanical moving components. They are long, lightweight bows that are very effective for target shooting or hunting and their limbs are designed to curve away from the archers.

Even though they are not fast like the compound bows, using a recurve bow can help learn and develop good archery techniques. More compact than a traditional bow, a recurve bow can even be used while riding on horseback or hunting in dense undergrowth.

Legend Archery offers a wide range of bows, arrows, quivers and other equipment at great prices for archers of all levels of skill and interest.
