Arcus Quality Designation

Arcus bows are rated for quality and assigned a corresponding number. The higher the number, the better the quality of the stick. Levels 5 and 6 are our best selling bows and really show what Arcus bows have to offer. Levels 7 and 8 have a cleaner, more effortless attack, with exceptional clarity and a rich, organic tone. Level 9 bows are rare, and are not always available. Arcus reserves the level 9 designation for bows that they consider to be perfect.
