1. Recurve bow
Recurve bow is a type of bow that is used as a standard for international competition. Recurve bow has the characteristic of a limb that curves away from the archer. This form of arc allows the arc to store the same energy with a straight-shaped arc with a shorter arc length. When the bow is still the dominant weapon of war, this is a distinct advantage for archers. Shorter arc shapes allow archers to move more freely when fighting. In his day this bow was very popular among riding archers.

2. Compound bow
Compound Bow is a bow that has a unique shooting system. Compared to the straight bow and recurve bow which only relies on strings for shooting, bow compound has a pulley mechanism in carrying out shooting. This mechanism makes compound bow unique characteristics when drawing is “let off”. Besides limb in this arc is also more rigid than the recurve bow and straight bow so that this arc can store and channel energy more efficiently. The latest development of the technology of making this arc allows this arc to shoot arrows up to speeds of 340 feet/second.

3. Longbow
Long Bow is a type of bow that has a long arc dimension that is approximately the same length as the user’s height. Longbow length can reach 2 meters. This long arc dimension is intended so that the bow can be drawn until it reaches the user’s face.
