Compound bows have taken a flip to new know-how that enormously reduces the quantity of soar and hand shock the bow has when shot. This new know-how is known as vertical limb know-how.
In earlier variations of the compound bow the limbs the place set in order that when the bow was fired the limbs would shoot ahead, this labored properly apart from the soar of the bow, in addition to the hand shock throughout the riser of the bow. In order to appropriate for this a number of totally different tools was made in an effort to attempt and dampen the shock.
Bowtech was the primary to provide you with this new vertical power know-how, in 2003 they launched three compound bows that includes this new know-how. The VFT Extreme, Patriot VFT, Patriot Dually VFT. This new know-how was an enormous hit, bow hunters and archers throughout have been amazed and fascinated at how a lot this new know-how decreased bow soar and hand shock after the bow had been fired.
This new know-how was such a success that all the different bow firm’s began following go well with, and began implementing the “Vertical Force Technology”. This new know-how was carried out by angling the riser limb pockets at extra of a horizontal aircraft, this allowed the limbs to sit down at extra of a horizontal aircraft. VFT works on the premise that when the bow is drawn the limbs are compressed in a downward movement as an alternative of the previous backwards movement.
When the bow is launched as an alternative of the limbs taking pictures ahead, the higher limbs goes up and the decrease limb goes down. Because these limbs are the identical they each retailer the identical vitality, which makes them equal opposing forces which when it comes to physics signifies that these two forces would cancel one another out. Because the forces are equal and cancel one another out your bow doesn’t pull up or down, and now not jumps ahead. This is science is what retains your bow nonetheless and reduces the quantity of soar and hand shock you are feeling.
If you might be nonetheless taking pictures the previous type of compound bow, and you haven’t at the very least tried the distinction that this VFT know-how brings to the desk I’d encourage you to go and give one a attempt, I can guarantee you that you’ll not consider the distinction that it makes. This is unquestionably one thing to remember when buying a brand new or used bow.
