Description
We truly feel that we are providing the archery community with the most advanced, complete, and effective training device to ever be introduced to the market. Performance training is a necessity for all sports from football to archery. Our goal at AccuBow was to provide the archery community with a product that can provide all archers from beginners to experts with a way of improving their abilities outside of the range and the field. The most effective way to do this was to design a product that feels just like your actual bow when you draw it back.

The AccuBow effectively targets and strengthens every muscle fiber involved in shooting your bow. With our training system you will be able to increase your pulling strength, holding stability, and shooting stamina. Through the use of the built-in laser sight, you can effectively train the mind-muscle connection needed to be a consistently accurate archer. The AccuBow will allow you to increase your physical capacity, practice proper mechanics, and eliminate bad habits such as target panic, canting, and rushing through your shot during the moment of truth.

Benefits of the Accubow Archery Training Device Include:

10-70 Pounds of Easily Adjustable Resistance in One Band
Built-in Laser Sight for Stability and Accuracy Response
Vibration Dampening System for Unlimited Dry-Firing
Uniquely Designed Grip to Simulate the Feel of Most Popular Bow Grips on the Market Today
Level bubble Attachment to Ensure Proper Vertical Alignment
D-Loop Attachment to Allow Use with a Mechanical Release
Carbon Fiber Finish
Using the AccuBow:

Want to increase pulling poundage or rehab an injury - use the product for sets and repetitions with brief 3-5 second holds at your anchoring point. Try to contain the laser within your target for the entirety of the hold. Use the AccuBow at higher settings and focus on building your way up in poundage and decreasing target size from week to week. The AccuBow should be used at a weight that allows you to complete 10 sets of 8-10 repetitions (3-5 second holds). The resistance band at 70 pounds has no let-off, so it is much more difficult than pulling a 70 pound compound bow with 80% let-off. I currently shoot 65 pounds, but have a difficult time training with the AccuBow at 50 pounds.

Stamina/Stability/Accuracy/Consistency/Tighter Groups - This is what we had on display at the ATA show, with our "AccuBow Challenge". For the challenge, the AccuBow was set at 25 pounds of resistance and we asked challengers to draw the bow back and hold at their anchoring point. They then had to hold the laser within 3 inch, 2 inch, and 1 inch rings for 45, 35, and 15 seconds, respectively, without ever letting the bow down. The goal of the challenge was to not let the laser bounce outside of the target at any point. Out of about 450 challengers, only 45 people were able to complete the challenge. People that did it varied in all shapes, sizes, and gender. Thus, proving that strength in the gym, does not necessarily translate to strength and accuracy behind an arrow. The AccuBow can be used at lower poundage holding for long periods of time to train a different set of muscle fibers and improve stamina, stability, accuracy, consistency and allow someone to start shooting tighter groups at their current draw weight. Users really want to challenge themselves to build on the amount of time they can hold at given draw weights while being able to keep the laser within the target and as they progress, increasing the resistance or reducing the target size are all ways to keep improving one's ability.

Proper form/mechanics/release - The AccuBow is also a great insurance policy for any release manufacturer or archery shop as it has the ability to be dry-fired without damaging the bow. Instructors, range supervisors, release manufacturers, etc. can put an AccuBow in somebody's hands if they have never picked up a bow before and teach proper mechanics with a product that looks and feels like an actual bow so that they don't risk that user dry-firing an expensive bow or flinging arrows into the ceiling/walls of their range. Furthermore, many archers suffer from target panic, buck fever, poor focus, rushing their shot, etc. The AccuBow allows users to draw, hold, and aim the laser steady on a target just as they would aim their pins steady on a target. Users can focus on keeping back tension, expanding through their shot, and following through without worrying about where the arrow goes (which is usually the cause for most poor shots; people want to see where the arrow goes and forget to release and follow through with proper mechanics). In practicing your form and smooth release with the AccuBow, you can develop good habits that will become second nature at the range or in the field.

Helps me maintain stamina between weekend shoots.
(Posted on 28/09/2017)
I normally get to shoot only at the weekends so I use one of these every evening after brushing my teeth for a dozen or so pulls.
I don't release, just let it down after holding the draw for a couple of seconds. I don't use the laser much although it does show the wobble.
Even at this level of exercise it does help me retain stamina and not to have fadeouts during practise or competition rounds.
The band is a tube, which recently broke at one end but the trainer was easy to fix with a few simple archery type tools. Note the small ball will need a touch of detergent smeared on it to enable it to be pushed into the tube. It is held in place by a tiewrap. Replacement bands are available.
I pull 28 to 30lbs, so don't need to wind it up and can't comment how a higher poundage might feel.
There are other things on the market but I like the fact it has the sort of heft of a bow and the "string" is in roughly the proper place to start the draw from. Also convenient that is is compact since we have low ceilings.
I shoot both longbow and recurve so not fussed at the handle shape, which is quite skinny. Some people might think it worthwhile putting on a tennis racket handle wrap or building up a more regular recurve style grip.
It is a little bit plasticy in appearance, but it is a training aid and we aren't putting down the $$$ for something CNC machined in aluminium.
It may cost a bit more than other training aids, but this is the thing I use every day that I don't shoot, and it does make a difference.

Accubow review
(Posted on 03/03/2017)
Brought this for my daughter for Xmas she loved bed it. Tried it myself found yes you should always wear an arm guard as does slap your arm . But considering that you are supposed to be practicing what you would do anyway shooting it's a good idea to wear one so it feels the same. Perfect grip if you shoot a compound but needs to have a universal grip that can be attached for those who shoot traditional and recurve . Recommend that long rod and v bars & short rods added ( sales assistant should recommend or advise ) as this really stabilises the accubow and makes it feel more like your bow. All in all we really liked it . Not bad for 1st draft of design. It really helped with stabilising core and arm . Better than a band we found.

Not as advertised
(Posted on 01/03/2017)
If you want something precise and reliable, this is not it. There is no control over the draw weight, don't believe the charts or you'll injure yourself. The draw weight chart is wildly inaccurate.

So, if the draw weight is not even closed as advertised, what makes this expensive rubber band better than a simple £1 rubber band?
Review by Ivanhoe
Worth every penny
(Posted on 23/02/2017)
I've used several bow trainers over the years and in my humble opinion the Accubow is far superior and worth every penny.

As I now only shoot once per week I wanted to be able to maintain my strength, the Accubow is perfect for this. The ability to dry fire is an added bonus. Yes, you need to wear an arm brace when releasing but to me that is no big deal.

Does the job but expensive for what it is
(Posted on 11/12/2016)
My son and I bought this between us as to work on form/strength as we live a fair drive from our club course. In that respect the £115 cost was split but it's overpriced for what it is.
It's easy to change weight - my bow is 45# and I can crank it up way past if needed. The red dot laser is useful to practise holding the bow still. Wear an arm guard if you release - it gives you a good slap. The level is a bit small but I can see the bubble ok. It's easy enough to just pick up anytime and use. It looks and feels more like a bow so I do prefer this to the rubber band type aids.
Review by Malcolm
Sounds great, but the reality is different.
(Posted on 21/11/2016)
Nice idea, but....
The laser is offset to the left, so it's no good if you're left handed as you cannot see the dot through the bow.
The spirit level is too small and indistinct.
You will also need a steel plate down the inside of your arm if you want to practise releasing, as the blurb says you can, because that big fat rubber tube slaps you bad (I never hit my arm shooting my recurve bow. I suspect that even with a release aid you would struggle to get a clean release).
The grip is not ambidextrous, it's just uncomfortable.
I cannot believe that it would actually go up to 70lbs, I twisted the adjuster round and round, and even at my long draw length I only got it up to 40 before becoming worried about something breaking.
Don't be fooled by the pretty carbon fibre look, it's just plastic and rubber, made cheaply in China and sold at a price which could only be warranted if it was any good at what it was supposed to do.
Not impressed at all.
The simple W&W or Saunders band trainers are a better, and cheaper buy.
