    Product Description

    Selecting the Proper Hand Orientation

    HAND ORIENTATION:

    There can often be confusion when selecting the appropriate hand orientation. Knowing which hand to hold your bow and which hand to draw your bow is easiest determined by knowing which hand you're most dominant with. For instance, if you write and/or throw a ball with your right hand then you are right hand dominant. Conversely, if you wrtie and/or throw a ball with your left hand then you are left hand dominant. When choosing the correct hand orientation for a bow, simply select the option that is your dominant hand. The dominant hand is used to draw the string of the bow while the opposite hand holds the bow stationary.

    • RIGHT HAND - Right Handed bows are held in the left hand and drawn with the right hand.
    • LEFT HAND - Left Handed bows are held in the right hand and drawn with the left hand.

    Selecting The Proper Draw Weight

    DRAW WEIGHT:

    When it comes to selecting the proper draw weight, it certainly can very among different archers. Determining what is right for the individual greatly depends on the skill level and what that person hopes to achieve as an archer. Making sure the correct draw weight is selected is a critical choice for any new archer. The learning experience can be greatly hindered if a new archer struggles to draw their bow, sacrificing the ability to focus on form and consistency. Typically, we would recommend sticking to the lower draw weights until you are comfortable shooting your new bow. Just always keep in mind that starting off over bowed is a sure way to sabotage progression.

    Any archer is going to naturally progress the more they use their bow, which will eventually lead to stepping up the draw weight. The draw weight of the bow can always be changed down the line by purchasing and installed a set of either higher or lower weight limbs. This is convenient if you prefer lower weights for target shooting and then want to use the same bow in a higher draw weight for hunting. All Southwest Archery Takedown limbs are 100% interchangeable amongst Southwest Archrey risers (excluding the 54" Little Tiger).

    If this is your first bow, check out the charts on the left to further assist you in selecting the appropriate draw weight! Disregard this chart if you already have experience with a recurve bow. Compound experience does not count as it is entirely different.

    Assembling Your Southwest Archery Bow

    ASSEMBLY/DISASSEMBLY:


    Upon receiving your new Southwest Archery bow, there is some minor assembly required. However, rest assured that it is very simply and includes a well illustrated and descriptive instructional booklet with links for videos on the manufacturer website. The bow consists of three main components: the riser/handle, a pair of matching limbs (upper and lower), and a string.

    • The two limbs simply mount to the riser using the two included limb bolts. Verify the limbs have been installed correctly by holding the riser in your hand as if you were going to shoot your bow, the limb tips should be pointing away from you when the bow is unstrung. If the limb tips are pointing towards you when holding the bow correctly then the limbs were mounted to the riser upside down.
    • The string has two different size loops on each end. The end of the string with the bigger of the two loops goes on the top limb and slides down the limb tip past the string groove. The end of the string with the smaller of the two loops goes on the lower limb and slides down the limb tip to rest in the string groove.
    • USING A STRINGER TOOL simply flex the limbs to allow the end of the string with the bigger loop to slide back up the limb towards the tip so that the string rests in the groove.
    • Verify that the string has been successfully installed correctly by making sure that both ends of the string are resting in the string grooves on both the upper and lower limb.
    • NEVER DRY FIRE YOUR BOW OR SHOOT IT WITHOUT AN ARROW!
    Using a proper stringer tool is the ONLY safe way to assemble/disassemble any traditional bow without potentially harming the bow or more importantly, yourself. A stringer tool is necessary whenever the string must be installed or removed from your bow. It’s not recommended to leave a bow strung for any long period of time, so it’s best to remove the string after each use. All Southwest Archery bow listings have an option to include a stringer tool with the purchase of the bow. If you do not already own a stringer tool, then please select “WITH STRINGER TOOL” option prior to check out to have it included with your purchase.
