Tips and Care
Always use a bow stringer.
Not using a bow stringer is the quickest way to cause limb damage.
Never Dry fire the bow.
Never leave your bow in a hot environment.
The most common example is your car or truck.
If you are leaving it in a hot area, ALWAYS unstring your bow and cover so it's not in direct sunlight.
ALWAYS allow your bow to cool down if its been in a hot environment.
Always check your string for wear and frays.
Especially check around the string groove. The string grooves cause wear from use.
Bow storage: NEVER stand bows on their end.
Long Bows can be hung from the string and bow vertically.
Recurve Bows can be hung by equal points on limbs horizontally.
Never use Fast Flight string on a bow that is not compliant with it.
Always use string that is recommended for that bow.
Never use an arrow that is too light for the bow.
Always use an arrow weight of 7.5 grains per lb or heavier.
For Hunting, I would suggest 10 grains per lb.
Failure to follow this advice will result in damage!
