Introduced at the 2016 ATA Show was a new archery training device, the AccuBow. The AccuBow looks and feels like a bow, but is not meant to fire arrows. The product provides an all-encompassing method for training at home or on the go. The AccuBow effectively improves users mechanics, strength, stability, and stamina to increase their physical capacity to be accurate at the range or in the field.
The patented design features an easily adjustable resistance band coupled with an interactive built-in laser. The AccuBow also features a vibration dampening rod and a lower “cam” that allows users to set their desired pulling resistance within a wide range of 10-70 pounds.
Archers simply draw back and hold the laser on a target (simulating the act of holding a pin steady over a target), and finally dry-fire the band. This exercise is very effective in helping users get rid of bad habits such as target panic, trigger punching, and loss of back tension through release.
AccuBow – 2016 ATA Show Louisville, Kentucky
The AccuBow team was putting ATA attendees and exhibitors alike through the “AccuBow Challenge” where challengers were asked to draw back the AccuBow at 25 pounds of resistance and hold the laser within 3 inch, 2 inch, and 1 inch targets for various amounts of time. The challenge tested user’s stamina and stability as the laser response displayed just how much muscle fatigue hinders steadiness and ultimately, shooting accuracy.
After taking the challenge, the muscles across my back and shoulders were screaming while I was attempting to steady the laser on the various targets. The final product also comes with a D-Loop attachment to allow users to practice with their mechanical releases as well as a threaded insert for weighted stabilizing attachments which will be sold separately.
The AccuBow is a great tool for anybody wanting to improve their skills, from beginners to experts, the adjustable resistance technology allows everyone to benefit from training. Whether you want to practice proper archery mechanics, strength train your archery muscles or just want to practice steadying your aim for hunting season, the AccuBow might be a great product for you. AccuBow plans to start taking online pre-orders in February at www.accubow.com and release the product to the public in late spring.
