Supportive clicker - indispensable for successful archers
The clicker usually does not play a role for archery beginners, but with increasing training success it becomes more and more important. It supports an even draw, so that with every shot the nearly same force is transferred from the bow to the arrow. Why is this necessary? Particularly during training and outdoor competition, distances of more than 60 m or 80 m have to be achieved. At these distances, even the smallest irregularities are clearly noticeable in the hit pattern. In order to avoid this and to shoot as many rings as possible, you should therefore use a clicker on the bow for distances of 50 m and more.
Determine the correct draw length thanks to the clicker
Clickers are used exclusively for recurve bows, as they are not required for compound bows and are not permitted for blank bows according to competition rules. Depending on the construction and form of your bow, you can attach the clicker directly to the handle or externally to the sighting arm. In our shop you can choose between various methods, e.g. models with double-sided adhesive pads or screw connections.
But how does this accessory work in detail?
In preparation for the shot, place your arrow on the arrow rest as usual, then clamp it between the clicker and the middle part of the bow and put the arrow on the nock. Now you can tension the bow. As soon as the correct draw length is reached, the clicker hits the bow and makes the typical 'click' sound. At this moment you release the string.

an extensive range of clickers for left- and right-hand users as well as models that can be installed on both sides. If you normally shoot with very long arrows, a clicker stem is recommended. This shortens the draw length span to the necessary length and you can still use the clicker for your bow without any problems.
You can also choose from products with or without magnet. The advantage of a magnetic clicker is that it prevents vibrations during firing and prevents the clicker tongue from jumping back. But no matter which model you choose, the most important requirement for a clicker is that it must not adjust itself.
