One of the benefits of compound bow is that they easy to carry, manipulate and adjust. They are easy to carry due to the fact that they are short and also made from metal alloys which are light in weight. Even though other bows can be adjusted as well but it will take you a longer time to adjust other bows than the compound bow. It will also take you a great deal of time to get used to adjusting limb and string in long bows. This is different from compound bows as adjusting them is one of the easiest tasks.
Compound bows are also beneficial since you can use them easily in a closed quarter. As an archer you will really benefit from this as you will not need a lot of moving space to load, aim and fly the arrow. The disadvantage with long bow is that you will not be in a position to use it properly in an enclosed quarter since it requires a lot of loading space. What most people like with these weapons is convenience which they can achieve from compound bows.
The advantage of compound bows is that you don’t need specific type of climate to use them. They are always unchanged due to the fact that they are made from metal alloys which are not influenced by any type of climate. Not only that, even bad weather like rain cannot affect them since they neither rust nor rot. Unlike woods which always expand or become weak in case there is a slight change in temperature or humidity. With this you will make inaccurate shots due to lack of consistency. In addition, it is also costly to replace wood and maintain it every now and then.
Archers also prefer compound bows because of the accurate shots and consistent pulling strength. The most important thing in weaponry is the accuracy as it is going to determine your success or failure. This is primarily because it is built with cables and pulley systems that gives it that strength. This is different from other types of bow which cannot produce that consistent kinetic energy for accuracy. In addition, their speed is also higher compared to other types of bow.
In addition, compound bows are also cost-effective. Despite the high initial cost of purchasing compound bows but in the long run you will end up saving a lot of energy. For one compound bows last for a long period of time without maintenance. This means that it will take you a long period of time before you replace it. With wooden bows you will spend a lot of money since they require regular maintenance.
