Comp.png

A compound bow is a bow that uses a levering system, usually of cables and pulleys, to bend the limbs. Some see the compound bow as the most recent evolution of archery. The pulley system or “cams” on either end of the compound are what give the bow its unique “let-off” capability to allow the archer to hold less draw weight.
