Crossbows with recurve limbs must have longer limbs and a longer barrel to provide a longer power stroke as compared to a compound crossbow.

Many hunters choose the recurve crossbow because of its simplicity.

  • It is easier to replace the string on a recurve crossbow than on a compound bow.
  • Recurve crossbows are easier to work on, allowing the shooter to do more maintenance.
