Archer, either on foot on horseback or in the chariot was a massive part of most militaries until around 1500 when they started to replace them with firearms, first in Europe and then progressively in other places. Archery today continues to be an exciting sport most commonly in the form of target artery and also in some areas for hunting.

There are different types of bow, and the kind of bow that is used by an archer is critical in determining the quality of the target and also hitting the target. The type of bows includes the traditional bow, the crossbow, the compound bow and the recurve bow. The Swedish variable bow is the only bow with the riser design that allows the manufacturer in other designs usually fixes user tuning of the center of gravity, deflex, middle of trust plunger heights, arrow rest and a couple of other Swedish variables. The Variable bow weighs about 1.55kg, the light version of the Swedish variable bow-ways around 1.25kg which is a bit lighter than a Hoyt Matrix and it is just one or two ounces more massive than the Hoyt Ion-X made in 3013.

Bertil Olsson, a celebrated and famous archer of Sweden, designed, patented and make it. He is the only distributor of this type of bow and to enjoy the Sweden variable bow you have to get it from him. The people who possess the variable bow looks as if they are keeping entirely about it. Majorly because they are in Sweden and more discussion of the brow is much more common in Sweden. It is quite rare to find this type of brow, and few people have used it in competitions. The Swedish variable bow is not IBO legal, but it is FITA legal as long as the 40mm rule is well complied with. It means that the pivot point of the grip cannot be above 40mm away from the pressure point on the plunger. It is entirely possible to set the hold back further than this, but if you pass the 40mm length, it won’t be FITA legal too. There Is also a set of spacers one at 40mm that will prevent the grip from jamming into the other part of the riser at full stretch should it come loose and there is also some well-crafted safety device built in other to stop other apparent problems from happening.

The variable handle of the Swedish bow means that you can get to the proper elbow placement without experiencing any discomfort. You will be able to converge on the rest of your form, and then over the months slowly turn the handle back to vertical as your arm becomes flexible enough to get to the upright joined position without being distracted.
