Beginning Archery: Avoiding Draw Weight Mistake!

Don’t Start Over Bowed.

First of all, it’s very important to understand why starting off over bowed can ruin your progress and furthermore your love for the sport! 

You do not need to stick with the same bow or limbs for several years, you can choose to upgrade when you feel improvement in your steadiness and strength. Having in mind to shoot the same bow for many years might have you think of getting higher poundage from the start which would automatically leads to over bow yourself right off the bat. If you are into recurve bow, it might be a good idea to start with a take-down so you can only change the limbs, you won't need to buy a whole new bow when ready to move up in poundage. 

By selecting a higher draw weight than what you can handle, it would be hard to correct your misalignment and defects and won't be able to tolerate proper training periods. Discomfort and discouragement ahead. Learn the sport one step at a time and your experience will be enjoyable and your progress will come along. Respect the learning curve!

As you become more proficient you can slowly increase the draw weight. Depending on each archer, you may go up 2 to 5 pounds.

With that being said choosing the proper draw weight for all kinds of archer is a topic that can be touchy. Determining what is right for you depends on your level, strength, condition and stamina as well as what you want to achieve in archery. Keep in mind, the more you shoot, the better you'll become!
