  • n. a modern bow that uses pulleys and cables to help with the drawing and releasing of the bowstring


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • A compound bow is always strung, and has pulley-cams that perform the seemingly magic trick of allowing you to hold the string with only, say, twenty pounds of pull-but when you release it, it assumes the force of fifty five pounds of pull, and propels the arrow viciously forward.
