Hi, my name is Charlie Lambarda. I’m here
with Expert Village to talk about beginning archery. At this time, we’re going to talk
about the parts of the bow, what makes the bow work. Now, this is called a stabilizer.
What it does, is it stabilizes your bow. It comes in many sizes, many shapes and many
colors. This is your site. They sell thousands of sites. You just, what you prefer, what
to look at. Let me turn it around so you might be able to see it. They have sites that will
go all the way up to 20, to 60 to 80 yard site. There’s many many different type of
sites, so ask your local dealer about those. I’ll show you the string. This is the string,
what powers the bow to release your arrow. This is the cam. The cam, depending on the
size how fast they go and they could be adjusted for the length of your arms. This is the limb.
This can be adjusted for the poundage, how heavy you want to pull. The bow will pull
from 30 all the way to 75 pounds. This is your rest, what holds the arrow. This is called
drop-release rest. When you pull the string it goes up, when you release, it goes down.
There are many many types of releases depending on what you prefer, that fits you. This arrow
has a light; I put a light on this arrow so I can get more lighting if I’m shooting indoor.
This light, I will turn it on, there’s many different lights. It’s got a blue light; you
can use it for a flashlight or to see your pin more. This is your, this safety cord goes
around your wrist so you do not drop your bow. They come in different sizes and different
colors on the bow. This bow is very quiet; it has this rubber piece on the string to
make it real quiet when you’re hunting animals in the woods so you’re very quiet.
