That's how we cut carbon ...!

That's how we cut carbon ...!
We would like to give you a brief insight into our work - we cut countless carbon shafts and arrows every day, because this is something you can't do at home without the necessary tools. But having your own arrow cutting machine is not cost-effective for everyone, which is why we offer professional cuts. Each cut is sanded flat on the edge and then deburred. So that our customers don't lose any precision!  

Recurve bow: assembly and disassembly

Recurve bow: assembly and disassembly
In the following video, Elli shows you how to assemble a beginner's recurve bow with screw fittings, how to string and unstring it and how to disassemble it again. It is essential that a recurve bow is strung with a suitable stringing aid, as this is the only way to prevent damage to the limbs.

The video is completed by a brief explanation of the brace height and how to change it, as well as a short lesson on unstringing the bow.

Using a pointed object, bend one of the flags so that it touches the battery on the underside and the other flag so that it touches the battery on the side. If the battery is then inserted and the battery compartment closed with the four small screws, the scale will fulfil its function.
