Compound Bow History

You might have come across older archery materials, say from around the turn of the 20th century, that might have used the term "compound bow" when they really meant "composite bow." At the time compound bows as we know them did not exist, so the term was used for composite bows, which are bows made of laminated horn, wood and sinew. Today we use "compound" to describe bows that use a levering system to bend their limbs. This system of pulleys and cables allow the compound bow to store more energy and shoot more quickly than equitable long bow and recurve bow designs.

The compound bow was first designed in the mid 1960s by Holless Wilber Allen, an American archer. Although compound bows in some ways require more complex care due to their moving parts, they have still become one of the most popular bow styles, particularly in the US. The compound bow can withstand changes in humidity and temperature (compared to bows made of natural materials) and some styles can offer reduced vibration and recoil.
