Looking for some advise from sombody who uses traditional archery equipment. I would like to buy either a recurve or a longbow.. I am finding there is a lot more to it than I thought, as far as bow sizes tip to tip.. I am 6 foot 5 with a long draw does that matter with a longbow or recurve. If yes what should I be looking for for length. What kind of arrows fletchings broadheads do you use. I know nothing about traditional archery other than I want to give it a try so any help is great.
I am looking for a blue collar budget bow does anybody know other brands to look at other than Martin Mathews Hoyt and PSE. They are expensive as much as a new compound. I dont want to break the bank I already spend too much on hunting as it is according to my wife......
Also has anybody ever made there own Longbow I would be interested in trying this, if so how did you do it...
Sorry for the long post but any advise is appreciated. Thanks
Woods Walker thanks for the post I will be printing the post off to have with me when I visit the archery shop to look for a bow. Also thanks for the website checked it out good stuff on there..
I live about 2 hours from the "FIB" border but have family that lives near zion and round lake beach if I visit any of them soon I will PM you maybe we can meet up and shoot those recurves.
Thanks again for the informative post and the offer to meet and shoot, very much appreciated.....
