How to use

For a bow with the swing arms 60 inches suitable string no longer than 57 inches. Better if it is purchased. Now for its production using the filaments from high molecular weight polyethylene under the brand Fast Light (fastlist) or Dyneema (Dyneema). According to professional shooters from recursive bows, the latter is preferable, because they have slightly more stretch and not so demanding to operate.

To pull the string on the bow, it is necessary to use an auxiliary cord with loops on the ends, which is three inches longer than the span of his shoulders.

The string is put on the tip of one shoulder and pushed on, until about the middle. At the end of the other shoulder it is worn normally. Cord loops fits over both of the tip, the handle is placed on the floor and pressed the feet. Pulling the cord, it is necessary to manage to move the loop of string from mid-shoulder to the place of its regular installation (notch, undercut at the end). Therefore it is better to perform this operation together.

After the tension of the string it is necessary to determine the location of the focus arrows so that when you stretch, it was strictly perpendicular to the handle. To do this, take something like a drafting t-square ruler with a perpendicular crossbar at the end. Put it on the shelf of the handle so that the cross member along the string. At the intersection of the clip the nock point a piece of plastic material which can be compressed around the string and so fasten it. As an option – bead fishing sinkers with the notch.

The bowstring is pulled with the right hand so that the fingers holding it were on the level of right corner of the lips. This is the classic position from which to deviate is to pull a little stronger or weaker. But in General, archery is very important to the magnitude of the tension was constant, so the rule is first to control this parameter. After it will become a habit, as the operation of the three pedals of the car without peeping.

When shooting from a classical onion is used and the classic release (the grip) of the boom over the rear end of the index and middle finger. However, you can use “Indian” grip – three fingers (index, middle, ring) for the string below the knock point.

If you want to shoot a Deer Master shafts with a hard tail (synthetic), attach the handle to the shelf with Pogranichny flip-up mustache. Otherwise, the arrow will fly into the unknown because of the impact of plumage on a fixed shelf handle.


Deer Master is not cheap. It costs no less than 11 thousand roubles. There are proposals for 16 thousand.
