What is the brace height for my fox
bow? CARE INSTRUCTIONS
+ What kind of arrow speed can I expect from my Fox bow?
This is a frequently asked question but very difficult to answer. There are many variables that effect the arrow speed. The main problem is that every person has different variables, good release, poor release, short draw, long draw and a variety of arrow weights that people shoot. For example a person that has a true 28" draw that has a push pull release verses a person that has a fixed release can have a 15-20 fps vary in arrow speed. We could give you chronograph speeds off of a test stand but that still does not answer your question. I would love to give you an exact speed that you will get when shooting a Fox bow, but its almost imposible to nail the arrow speed. The best that I can do for you is to find out your draw length, arrow type and weight, feather size and what model fox bow that you are interested in, then I could give you an approxamate arrow speed. We have been in business for over 20 years and have tested our bows with the top traditional archery manufacturers and are very proud of the high level of speed, stability and forgiveness that our bows provide to our customers.
+ What bow length and poundage should I get?
What are you going to do with your bow? If you only target shoot, than you would stay with our longer length and lighter poundage bows. If you target shoot and hunt. Than you should stay in the middle lengths of our bows and poundage is determined by the size of the animal and how much bow weight that you can comfortably shoot. If your strictly a hunter, do you hunt in tree stands and ground blinds than you probably want to stay on the shorter side of our bows and weight again is determined by the animal size and what bow weight you can comfortably handle. This all being said your draw length and personal preference has a lot to do with this question. When you order your custom bow wether it is short or long we change the force draw curve to be smooth to your draw length and perform at its peak. We have found the biggest mistake most people make when ordering bows is ordering a bow that is to heavy. A good test for this is pulling a bow and anchoring at full draw for more than the a count of 5, if you are shaking, you probably need to drop a few pounds.
+ How do I check my draw length?
The best way is to draw a traditional bow that is light weight and you can confortably pull the bow to your anchor point. Have a friend mark the arrow with a pen at the back of the shelf (target side of the bow) do this at least 3 times and take an average of the lengths, that should give you a good idea of your draw length by measuring from the center of the arrow knock hole to the mark on the arrow. If you have no access to a bow, you can put your hands togeather extending your arms straight in front of you with your fingers straight out, measure the distance from the tip of your fingers to your chest, just under your adams apple. This will give you an approximate draw length.
+ Does different type of limb material make a difference in the feel and the performance of my bow?
On a recurve the limb material you choose will make little to no difference in the smoothness and performance of the recurve. The design of the limb is what makes the recurve perform smooth and quick. The long bow has more wood in the limb than fiberglass so the characteristics of the wood does affect the feel and performance of the bow. Heavy limb core wood such as osage and black locust used in long bows tend to be a little stiffer but cast heavy arrows great. Long bows with light weight Bamboo and red elm limb cores tend to be a little smoother and like medium to light weight arrows.
