Handle Riser

Items to improve my archery.?

I am going to make target archery my main sport (I don't hunt), and as of now i will start saving to get myself the best gear possible. Other than practice, hard work, and dedication, what equipment would i find useful in making my archery as accurate as possible. I currently use a re-curve bow but i will be getting a compound soon so please list items for both. Thank you very much. :)

Any reasonable bow (i.e. anything better than a bow in a toy shop or a "jelly" come-and-try bow) you get will shoot better than you can. Consistency is the key. Execute every shot the same way with the same bow, with arrows that match each other, and every arrow will end up in essentially the same place. Technique is more important than equipment, although equipment is easy to "upgrade" if you have the money and good equipment will partly compensate for poor technique.

Be aware that compound archery and recurve archery are different disciplines, with a certain amount of healthy rivalry. Given similar expenditure, a compound bow should always be more accurate than a recurve bow. For most of us archers, we don't compare across the disciplines. As a recurve archery, I don't see the higher scores my compound colleagues obtain as a relevant comparison.

You don't indicate whether you have already taken up the sport or have been shooting for a while, nor whether you already own any equipment. Anyway, general advice for recurve archers starting out is: buy a good handle (riser) that you will keep for a long time (look for one that takes what are called International Limb Fitting limbs, as this will give you the most options, but note that Hoyt, although an excellent brand, now use a limb pocket design that is not quite ILF) , and cheap but reasonable limbs (Samick Vision, for example) as you can upgrade the limbs as your technique and strength improves; get a sight that has a lock or a rack and pinion on the vertical travel, which means not a really cheap one, as the really cheap ones tend to only have a grub screw and if this comes loose during shooting the sight ring housing will move; join a club and get proper coaching, as this will help and will also gives you access to people with equipment you can ask about - and sometimes borrow; get a good set of basic aluminium arrows, such as Easton Jazz, that you don't mind knocking around a bit but which will be reasonably close to each other in terms of stiffness and weight. The general idea in archery is to make each shot identical to the previous, which is why Simon Needham's book is subtitled "The Art of Repetition", because you and the bow are the same for every shot but the arrows are not. After a while, you can move up to things like stabilisers.

Equipment that would help develop your technique is harder to identify without knowing more about where you are at the moment. The most basic one is a simple exercise band, like a big sheet of stretching rubber, tied in a large loop. This can be use to practice drawing technique and strengthen the back muscles without using or shooting the bow. If you are serious about technique, then look in to the Rigid Formaster, a device I have found very helpful. It is a cup that goes over the elbow of your string arm with a cord that is attached to the string, allowing you to practice good alignment and proper use of the back muscles. It is very specialised, and you need to be reasonably competent for it to be of much use to you.

There is a lot of good equipment out there. You are better off joining a club and using that to develop your skills and expertise.
