Archery

Post by Phillip Gross on August 20th 2015, 2:53 pm

What do you guys do for archery as far as the bows are concerned? Do you allow kids to bring their own bow if they already have one, or do you require them to use the outpost supplied bows so that everyone is equal?

Looking at a couple different options for bows. The Genesis bow is what high schools use and seems to be a good bow for competition. What do you guys suggest?

Outpost has bows we use for events. If a boy has his own. I allow it. It promotes the boys to excel in what ever it is they take ownership in.

You can make some pvc bows for a few bucks each that are just as good as the store bought ones. All you need is a heat gun and some practice.

Great idea! Now is that plumbing pvc (white), or electrical pvc (gray)?

Well I did some quick research and found that there is substantial difference between using gray, or white pvc pipe for a bow. Here's a youtube video explaining the difference:
