Protective clothing for real archers

Protective clothing is just as essential in archery as careful handling of the bow and arrow. Without protective clothing, the slightest deviation from the optimum shooting sequence can lead to painful injuries.

Arm guard - important archery accessories to prevent injuries

There is a constant risk of the string hitting the forearm when shooting. This can lead to extremely painful abrasions and bruises on the forearm. An arm guard prevents this and should always be worn.

Arm guards are available in numerous variations. They come in different lengths. A short arm guard protects the forearm. This is usually sufficient for experienced shooters. Beginners in particular do not initially have sufficient control over turning the bow arm out of the string's field of movement. A long armguard that also protects the elbow area and upper arm is therefore recommended for them. Depending on the area of use and personal taste, the archer can choose between plastic, nylon, suede, smooth leather or imitation leather.

Protection for hands: fingertab, glove, or release

A fingertab, glove, and release, despite their many differences, share one thing in common: they are used for the secure holding of the bowstring.

The fingertab is placed on the inside of the drawing hand. The middle finger is passed through the hole. The index finger is held behind the smaller flap and the middle and ring fingers behind the larger one.

The finger glove is worn on the drawing hand. The index, middle, and ring fingers are inserted into the finger stalls. The glove is additionally secured at the wrist.

There are also gloves worn on the bow hand. These replace the arrow rest for traditional archers. Compound archers, instead of a tab or glove, use a release. For recurve archers, this accessory has been banned by all associations. There are many different designs. However, the basic principle remains the same: the string is no longer drawn with the hand. Instead, a small clamp replaces the fingers.

Often, however, the string is not taken directly but via a loop. This is a small loop that is attached above and below the nock on the string. To release, a small button or lever is simply operated, which releases the string. This is the crucial advantage: the string is released much faster and more precisely than would be possible by a hand shooter. As a result, fewer vibrations are transferred to the arrow.

Compound archers must handle a release with utmost care. If the release lever is operated during the draw, not only is the arrow prematurely and uncontrollably released. But the release could also hit the shooter themselves in the face, causing painful injuries.

When it comes to archery accessories, the chest guard is also important

Contrary to what the name suggests, the chest protector primarily aims not to protect the chest from injuries. It is also referred to as a plastron and mainly serves to keep clothing away from the string. Loose or thicker clothing is held back. The string bounces off the protector, preventing the string from getting tangled in the clothing during release.

The flight behavior of the arrow is not affected. The chest guard is worn on the bow hand side. It is simply pulled over the clothing. Even though the chest guard primarily aims to improve shooting results, its protective function should not be underestimated. Especially for female shooters, there is a significant risk that the string may graze the chest.

Nocking point for the perfect arrow angle

The nocking point helps the archer to always nock the arrow at the correct angle. The most common are special nocking points made of brass. However, a small winding with bowstring yarn serves the same purpose. The nocking point is positioned on the string so that, when the arrow is nocked directly below the nocking point, it forms an angle of just over 90° with the string. The underside of the arrow lies about 3mm above the right angle.

The easiest and most accurate way to attach a nocking point is with the help of a bow square. If desired, the nocking point can also be installed by our service team. This service can be selected for any bow.

Archery accessories for guiding the arrow - The arrow rest

With the exception of the longbow, all styles of bows require an arrow rest. There are different types of arrow rests: stick-on rests and screw-in rests. Both kinds can be used with or without a plunger. The prices for entry-level arrow rests range from 1.50 euros to 5 euros.

The main function of the arrow rest is to guide the arrow upon release. Longbow archers do not need an arrow rest. They traditionally shoot over the back of the hand, for which a special bow glove is needed, or over a notch in the handle that is usually equipped with a leather rest.

What accessories do I need for archery?
In archery, you can equip yourself comprehensively with various items. The equipment can vary depending on the archer's preference. Basically, the following accessories are available: a string that connects the limbs of the bow, a quiver to store the arrows and a target. Protective items such as arm guards, shooting gloves and finger tabs are also a sensible purchase. A sight and stabiliser can also improve the shooting experience. Depending on your preference, a release, an arrow rest, a bow stand or a bow bag are also popular items of equipment.
Which protective gear is useful for archery?
Protective gear is a sensible purchase for archery. Arm protection, shooting gloves or finger tabs and, if necessary, a chest protector are suitable. This can prevent injuries such as bruises and cuts from the bowstring.
Which bowstring is right for me?
Which bowstring suits you and your bow depends on various aspects. However, it is essential to consider the length of the bowstring. This depends on the size of the bow. The material of the bowstring and the relationship between the draw strength of the bow and the strength of the bowstring must also be taken into account. You should also think about the intended use, e.g. whether you are more of a recreational shooter or regularly take part in competitions. In most cases, the manufacturer will provide suitable information about the string when you buy the bow.
Why do I need a quiver?
A quiver is essential in archery so that your arrows don't lie around and you always have them to hand. This allows you to keep your arrows safely in one place without having to constantly search for them. A quiver is also advantageous in competition situations where time is measured. It is practical if your arrows are easily accessible. They are also more likely to be protected from damage in a quiver.
Why do I need covers and bags for archery?
The great advantage of cases and bags is that you can transport and store your bow, arrows and accessories safely and undamaged. This means you never lose track of things and don't have to worry about scratches on the way to training or competitions.
Why do I need buttons and clickers in archery?
Clickers and buttons can be used to improve accuracy and consistency when shooting. The button, also known as a push button, is attached to the bow window and can optimise the trajectory of the arrow. It can also minimise the vertical movement of the bow when the arrow is released. The so-called arrow clicker emits a clicking sound when the arrow has been pulled to the optimum position. This makes it easier to reconstruct the shot sequence.
Why do I need a release in archery?
Instead of releasing the arrow with your fingers, as in traditional archery, a release can also be used. The bow is held with a grip and the arrow is released by pressing a trigger. This enables more accurate shooting. It is also more comfortable to shoot due to the reduced effort required and the fact that the fingers are spared when drawing the bow.
Why do I need an arrow rest for archery?
An arrow rest helps to give your shot stability. The arrow has a stable platform, which promotes the accuracy of the shot. At the same time, the bow is also protected, as the bow window wears less despite repeated shooting.
Why do I need stabilisers in archery?
Stabilisers are attached to the bow and, as the name suggests, serve to make the bow more stable. They are suitable for balancing the weight of the bow and reducing vibrations. This can contribute to a smoother and more accurate shot. It also contributes to shooting comfort as the strain on the hands and arms is reduced. Depending on the shooter's requirements, different types of stabilisers are suitable, which vary in length, weight and shape.
What advantage do sights give me in archery?
Sights are attached to the bow. By providing an aiming line, the arrow can be aligned more easily, resulting in a more precise shot. This aiming line also helps to reconstruct the exact shot sequence and reduce misses. In addition to the fixed aiming line, different sights also come with different display systems and adjustment options, depending on the shooter's preference.
