How to Take Care of Your Archery Gear
Get the most out of your archery gear by properly storing your equipment, getting yearly tune-ups and taking steps to ensure safety.
Proper care is essential for optimal performance.
When storing your bow, avoid extreme heat or cold and protect your equipment with a bow case or bag. Prior to use, always inspect your bow and bow string, checking for the following conditions:
- Corrosion or rust
- Cracks or gouges
- Frayed or loose string
Most archers require a professional bow tune-up at least once year and wax their string several times per year.
Make sure arrows are in tip-top shape.
Prior to each use, check your arrows to ensure they’re ready to perform safely and accurately. Never shoot an arrow you suspect has damage.
- Check for straightness by rolling arrows on a horizontal surface (with fletching hanging off the edge of the surface)
- Flex a carbon arrow slightly, listening for evidence of cracks or splinters
- Inspect the nock, looking for cracks or damage, and confirm it is seated properly
- Store and transport arrows securely with a sturdy quiver or tube
