Junxing bow is an essential part of the bow-making process. It’s a step that involves attaching the bow’s limbs to the bow’s body. Without junxing bows, Bows would be very difficult to handle and would not function as well as they do. This blog post will explore the basics of junxing bows and how you can use them in your bow-making process. We’ll also discuss common mistakes people make when junxing bows and offer tips on avoiding them.
Types of Junxing Bows
There are three main junxing bows: the Yunlong, xiao long, and qi jun. Yunlong bows are often considered the most traditional and elegant type of bow, while xiao longbows are more commonly used in modern archery. Qijun bows are a hybrid between the two other types of bows. They are very popular because they offer some of the best balance and performance characteristics of both Yunlong and xiao longbows.
There are also many styles of junxing bows to choose from, including short-style bows with a short draw length, long-style bows with a longer draw length, and recurve-style bows with a curved shape and crossbows that use an arm-and-leg harness to hold the bow in place. It’s important to find the right style of junxing bow for your shooting style and needs so you can achieve the best possible results from your archery practice.
How to Make a Junxing Bow
Junxing bows are a type of bow used in traditional East Asian archery. They are known for their fast draw speeds and good accuracy.
To make a junxing bow, you will need the following materials:
-Bow mounts (optional)
-Tuning fork or stringed instrument
1. Start by measuring your height and shoulder width. These are the dimensions of the bow you will be making. Write these measurements down. 2. Next, measure the circumference of your arms at the widest part. This is your arm span. Write this measurement down too. 3. Now, find a piece of wood at least 60 inches long, 18 inches wide at the base, and 12 inches high off the ground. Cut this wood to these specifications. 4. Once you have cut your wood, rough it up using an axe or a chop saw to make it more manageable to work with later on. 5. Assemble your junxing bow by attaching the bowstrings to the ends of the wooden dowel rods (or poles). Make sure each rod has a corresponding string attached at either end 6. Next, mount your bows onto the ends of each rod using Bow Mounts (if using). It is important to distribute weight evenly across each mount to avoid causing unnecessary vibration during shooting 7.
Tips for Shooting Junxing Bows
If you want to add excitement and a new challenge to your archery experience, consider shooting a junxing bow. These bows are designed to be shot with two hands, which requires a different approach than traditional bows. Here are some tips for shooting a junxing bow that will help you get started:
1. Choose the right bow
Not all junxing bows are created equal, so choosing one that feels comfortable and fits your Shooting Style is important. The size of the bowstring also plays an important role in how the bow behaves. A smaller string will give you more control over the arrow’s flight, while a larger string will allow the bow to swing more freely.
2. Find a good instructor
Whether you’re new to junxing or want to improve your skills, finding an experienced instructor can help you learn safely and efficiently. Ask around at local archery stores or online forums; they may be able to recommend someone who can teach you everything from basics like stance and grip to more advanced techniques like split shots and compound releases.
3. Practice, practice, practice!
The best way to learn how to shoot a junxing bow is by practicing as often as possible. Even if it’s just at home on your own time, shooting arrows into a target board or barn door will help build muscle memory and promote better shooting form.
4. Have fun!
No matter how good your shooting skills become, there’s always room for improvement. Enjoy yourself while practicing; it’ll help you stay motivated and focused.
Which type of junxing bow should you buy?
There are three main types of junxing bows: crossbow, recurve bow, and compound bow.
A crossbow is the simplest type of junxing bow, consisting of a short wooden stock, a bowstring attached to the stock, and an arrow or bolts stored in a magazine on the shoulder. A recurve bow is similar to a crossbow but has a longer stock than the crossbow, which allows it to be drawn more slowly and evenly. A compound bow is the most advanced type of junxing bow, combining features of both the crossbow and recurve bows.

Second, they have certain specific needs that you should be aware of before buying one. Third, practice with your bow before diving into the field to familiarize yourself with its performance.
