Salient Features of the Leader Accessories Compound Bow
Design and Construction
The Compound bow is of very high quality composite material. It is sturdy and quite durable. The riser is made from machine aluminum, which gives it a nice and smooth texture. This riser has a good cut out to give it a modern look, reduce its weight and give the user a better grip.
The dual eccentric cams are made from aluminum, again adding to the overall stability and durability of the bow. Besides, it makes adjustment of draw length quite easy too. The axle to axle length is 35 inches, which is quite compact in size and ideal for carrying around while hunting. Weight of the bow is also quite less, amounting to just 4.4 pounds. The overall finishing of the bow is quite attractive, with the machined threads in the pre-drilled holes that have bee provided for add-ons.
The Leader Accessories 50-70 Hunting has a good range of draw weight, which is between 50 and 70 pounds. The limb bolts come in the packaging quite tightly screwed, and need to be loosened and adjusted before you start using the bow for the first time. For this, you will probably need an Allen wrench.
To adjust the draw weight, you need to adjust the limb bolts that join the limbs with the riser. You have to be careful not to turn those more than 4 complete revolutions. The draw length is between 26 and 30 inches, which is fine for most adult archers. Adjusting it is very easy, and you don’t need a bow press for it. If your draw length is longer than 30 inches, then, this bow is not suitable for you.
If you have a longer draw length than the 30″ inches max of the Leader Accessories 50-70 Hunting, this one is not for you.
The back wall of the bow is quite solid and the valley is quite wide. This will definitely help beginners, as they will be able to give more consistent shots and thereby raise their accuracy as time goes by. The draw of the bow is also very smooth.
Speed and Accuracy
After you let go of the arrow in a shot, it can reach a maximum speed up to 296 FPS. Higher speed means a sure target strike, while lower speeds makes the arrow lose momentum too early on. Thus, the Leader Accessories 50 – 70 hunting has a pretty good speed , which is ideal for targeting prey. It necessary to keep in mind that a higher weight bow or arrow can substantially reduce the kinetic energy of the arrow. Moreover, other factors may also come into play in reducing the kinetic energy, like bad weather or shooting too early on, while the prey is still quite far away.
This bow has a let off of around 70% and this is great for those who are targeting, since the arrow is properly retained in one place while aiming. This in turn causes the shot accurate, and the aim precise.
This compound bow comes with a myriad of accessories, here are some them:
- carbon arrow x 12
