Default RE: First Recurve bow purchase!

I agree that starting with a used bow is the way to go. Start with a low enough weight, 40-45# @28", so that you can concentrate on the mechanics of the shot, without having to worry about if you're reaching full draw because the bow's a little heavy to start with. Or you start shaking after only a few shots. If you go too heavy, you can cause all sorts of problems with your shooting that'll be danged difficult to get rid of.

Make em sharp and shoot em straight, or leave em home.
