Enjoy this fantastic article written by Todd Kuhn I found while looking for information on crossbows. I have never used one but have recently took up archery with a compound and figured I would check out the benefits of crossbows for big game :)
Just getting into the crossbow game? Here’s an insider’s guide to the anatomy of a crossbow. Check out this review of what features differentiate a high-end bow from a mediocre one.
Riser: Typically constructed of machined or cast aluminum onto which the limbs are mounted. High-end bow risers are CNC machined from extrusions or solid billets, while lesser quality risers are cast.
Arrow Track: Also called the barrel or flight track. It is the physical structure that the arrow rests on and travels down when the bow is triggered. The more precise the construction, the more accurate the delivery of the arrow downrange.
