Compound bows


Falco is the distributor of the following brands in Northern-Europe:


Compound bow is the most popular bow type in the world and there are models inthis category for every type of archery - recreational, competitive, hunting, fishing etc. What makes a compound bow special is its stringing mechanism: The compound bow has its string attached to pulleys (cams), and one or both of the pulleys have one or more cables attached to the opposite limb. When the string is drawn back, the string causes the pulleys to turn. This causes the pulleys to pull the cables, which in turn causes the limbs to bend and thus store energy. The unique result is a bow that is difficult to draw, but light to hold at full draw. The whole process is reversed at release which gives the arrow an extra boost, with some models the speed of flight is over 100 m/s.

Compound bows are shot with an aluminum, carbon or carbon-aluminum arrows, mostly used with a sight mounted on it and sometimes shot with a release (equipment shown under accessories).
