FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE YOUR BOWS MADE OF?
— Our bows are constructed via a specialized process of heating and treating PVC. This process enables our bows to shoot faster and last longer than most of the other bows similar to our designs. This process sets Odinson Archery bows apart from most of the market.
CAN YOU HUNT WITH THEM?
— Absolutely! All of our bows are fined tuned through a chronograph to get the speeds up to industry standards. We’ve tested them against recurve bows such as Damon Howatt, PSE Bows and hickory bows. Our speeds are running the same if not FASTER than those models. Please check out Youtube Channel to see from of these chronograph test videos.
HOW LONG WILL MY BOW LAST?
— This will depend on how well the bow is taken care. If the bow is left unstrug and stored on something like a bow/gun rack(not propped up in the corner of the room), your bow can last just as long as any other bow out there on the market. Due to our process, Odinson Archery customers who have bought their bows since our inception are still being used today by those very same customers.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE BUYING?
Be sure to watch our videos on stringing instructions and start learning about the art of recurve archery. It is also important to be sure that your shipping address is correct when you are purchasing the item. We cannot be held responsible for lost packages due to incorrect address listings. Be sure to check your emails regarding turnaround times and shipping info. Many times, those emails end up in Spam filters so be sure to check there before contacting us. If you do not have an email within 24hrs, contact us then.
WHAT ABOUT MY DRAW LENGTH?
–Most of our bows are rated at a 28 inch draw length which is a standard for most shooters. The only bow that we offer that is not designed for this draw length is The Baby Faced Assassin model. Drawing this bow to 28 inches could cause overdraw which can result in collapse or failure of the limbs. Typically, knowing the draw length is only necessary if your draw length will exceed 30 inches. For those cases, please contact us and we’ll accommodate your specific draw length.
WHAT ARE YOUR STRINGS MADE OF?
— Unlike other bows on the market that are constructed from PVC, our bows feature a handmade flemish twist high performance string. This string is made from B50 Dacron and is typically composed of 14 strands hand woven together.We do NOT use 550 paracord for the string.
DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?
— Yes! However, we request that our international customers please contact us for an invoice to include international shipping rates. Typically, this runs an extra $10 to $15 for international orders.
I’M NEW TO ARCHERY OR I’VE SHOT COMPOUND BOWS BEFORE, WHAT DRAW WEIGHT DO YOU RECOMMEND?
— Typically I recommend 30# to 35# draw weight for women and 35# to 40# draw weight for men. If you have shot compound bows before, DO NOT assume that what you draw the same weight. There is no “let off” on our bows. Something like a 70# draw weight bow will weight 70# at full draw. If you’ve never shot a recurve style bow before and have shot compound bows, I would recommend something in the 45# to 55# draw weight.
