There are two types of arrows: the arrow with a suction cup tip and the arrow with a steel point.

Firstly, here's an exploded view of an arrow with a steel point in order to know all the parts it is made up of.

Three Types of Bows

compound bow

The compound bow is a bow with a high draw weight that is mostly dedicated to competition use.


The longbow is also called a traditional bow. It is a one-piece construction and is intended for advanced archers (no accessories can be fitted to it).

recurve bow

The recurve bow is a bow that adapts to your use, whilst being available in different sizes, making it suitable for a wide range of people

2. Archer - Level of Skill

bow for beginners

If you are discovering archery with either family or amongst friends, go to the DISCOVERY range.

3. Are You Left or Right Handed?

Here is a simple method to know which is your dominant eye: With both eyes open, point with your thumb at an object 5 meters away; then close your left eye.

left handed target

Your thumb is left of the target, which means that you use your left eye to aim.

A left-handed archer aims with his left eye, holds the bow with his right hand, and pulls the bowstring with his left hand

right hand target

If your thumb is still centred on the target, this means that you use your right eye to aim.

A right-handed archer aims with his right eye, holds his bow with his left hand and pulls the bowstring with the right hand.
