Confessions of an Archery Addict: Where to Begin?

When beginners take their first archery class, many want to run out and buy their own equipment afterwards. Many of us can relate to that initial enthusiasm. But, unlike sports such as tennis, basketball or baseball, buying archery equipment shouldn’t be an impulse buy. The equipment is pricy and it takes a while to figure out what type of bow works for you (e.g., recurve, longbow, compound, etc.).

In this video Catherine Curtis, a volunteer instructor at the Rancho Park Archery range, gives some sage advice on archery equipment and why it’s a good idea for beginners to resist the urge to run out and buy their own equipment right away.

  1. I can definitely relate to that overwhelming desire to get out and buy my own bow and arrows and I have to say that I was glad that I listened to the experienced archers in my club who told me to bide my time and take it seriously. Great post, thanks for sharing.
