Which armguard is right for you?

Armguards, also known as bracers, come in a variety of materials and styles. The English tend to fancy the Robin Hood lace style with their traditional look. I also quite like the look of metal warlord rings which can also adorn a bracer. Practically speaking, though, a simple unadorned bracer with elastic cord is the best for day to day use, and that’s what I wear most often. Elastic cord with beads and loops for easy on and off An armguard or bracer can be of leather, nylon or plastic. The bracer is worn on the extended arm holding the bow.

ARROW REST. In the center of the bow, this is a little shelf where the arrow sits so it does not scrape along your hand when you release. On a takedown bow, this arrow rest is in the middle of the riser. BACK. This is counter to logic – but it’s the flat side of the bow that faces the target, away from the string. BELLY. The flat side of the bow that faces you when you draw, on the same side as the string, and closest to your own belly. BOW SIGHT. Typically found on competition bows, takedown bows, and compound bows. It is an attachment to the middle of the riser which allows you to aim more accurately, as you would if using a rifle. It is used in conjunction with a small tube-piece on the string to line up the target center. BRACE HEIGHT. When the bow is strung, this is the d...
