Purposely tilting a traditional bow to keep the arrow resting on the shelf and to improve the sight window for instinctive shooting.
This is a style of traditional shooting that uses the point of the arrow as an aiming reference. The “gap” refers to the space between where the arrow point needs to be held and the target at varying distances.
ILF RISER AND LIMBS
Risers and limbs made to International Limb Fitting specs are, in theory, crosscompatible, allowing you to mix risers and limbs of takedown bows from different manufacturers.
A string-gripping style that places the index finger above the arrow nock, and the middle and ring fingers under it.
REFLEX/DEFLEX The amount of curve away from (reflex) or toward (deflex) the shooter in a bow’s limb or riser. A classic recurve has a reflexed riser with deflexed limb tips.
Any bow that can be disassembled, usually by removing the limbs from the riser.
A string-gripping style that’s just as it sounds: The index, middle, and ring fingers all go under the arrow nock.
The term for bows featuring trapezoidal limbs where the belly of the limb is wider or narrower than the face. The design makes for a lighter, faster bow.
