Hoyt Archery Compound Bows
Hoyt compound bows are often used for bowhunting as well as for field and 3D archery. These bows come in a variety of types, leaving some buyers overwhelmed by the number of choices. As you shop for a new compound bow, remember to consider the axle length of the crossbow as well as the various types that are available to find the one that's a fit for you.
What Axle Length Do I Need?
One of your first considerations in a compound bow should be the total length (or axle length) of the bow. Shorter bows are easier to use, but they are often more difficult to shoot. As such, they are well suited for those shooting from a tree stand. Conversely, longer bows are better suited for beginner shooters.
What Types of Compound Bows Are Available?
There are several types of compound bows, each of which is classified by the type of cam system it uses. Popular archery bows include single-cam, hybrid-cam, dual-cam and binary-cam styles. Single-cam bows are known for their ease of use, hybrid-cams prove easy to clean and require minimal maintenance and twin-cams and binary-cams can travel at a high velocity.
