Equipment Used In Archery Game

 

Archery is a skill that transforms the traditional hunting technique into a challenging competitive sport. Target archery, as opposed to hunting archery, involves shooting an arrow from a bow to a precise point on a distant target. In this some equipment is used which are given below:

  1. Arrow

It may seem tiny, bearing a maximum diameter of just 9.3 millimeters (as per Olympics standards), but the arrow should not be underestimated. The modern arrow is commonly made using carbon fiber, fiberglass, wood, or aluminum.

  1. Bow

Comprising two limbs joined in the center by a riser, a bow is designed to project arrows using the energy exerted from pulling back the bowstring. A hand grip is found on the riser, which is the middle portion of the bow. It also contains the arrow rest, where the arrow is positioned. Apart from the various types of equipment, each dedicated to increasing the power, precision, and safety of an archer’s shot, the bows themselves have different classifications to suit varying needs and competition requirements. Among them are the two most common kinds used today recurve bows and compound bows.

  • Recurve Bows

The only type of bow which is used for the Olympics, recurve bows has tips that curve outwards, away from the archer. Designed to add more power, the curves of a recurve bow move and straighten towards the archer when pulled, before returning to its original state upon completion of the shot.

  • Compound Bows

In addition to the standard recurve bow events, previous editions of the SEA Games, as well as the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, have seen the inclusion of compound bow events. Utilizing rotating pulleys fixed to the end of each limb, compound bows are designed to increase energy-efficiency.

3. Bowstring
The string connecting both ends of a bow’s limbs, modern bowstrings are typically made using sturdy polyethylene fibers.

4. Release Aid
True to its name, the release aid helps an archer to shoot with greater accuracy. It is a small device that archers use, instead of their bare fingers, to pull back and release the bowstring.

5. Stabiliser
A weight, usually placed on a rod, acts as a stabilizer when mounted on a bow. This aids in the minimizing of movement when and after releasing the arrow, improving the chances of a perfectly straight shot.

 


6. Bracer
A type of leather or plastic guard wore on the forearm, the bracer protects against injuries that may be caused by the bowstring and/or the arrow. It also helps to prevent the archer’s sleeve from getting caught in the bowstring.

7. Finger Tab
Also known as an archer tab, this handy little leather device protects the archer’s fingers when the arrow is released.

8. Armguard

Armguards protect the arm from the string when an arrow is released; they are made of plastic (or leather) and are worn on the inside of the forearm.

9. Chestguard

 A chest guard covers the side of the archer’s chest closest to the bow, keeping clothes out of the path of the bowstring.

10. Quiver

 Archers tie a quiver around their waist to hold their arrows.

These are some important equipment which is really needed when you want to play archery.
