PostSubject: What would you recommend   Tue Apr 28, 2009 4:16 pm

I am very interested in going old school myself. I am leaning toward a recurve so what can some of you recommend for a bow (Black Widow, Mathews, etc...)? Do you get more speed from a recurve versus a long bow?

Actaully Jody keep an open mind to several others out there. There may not be a better trad bow then a black widow but they are expensive. You can get great quality in a recurve or long bow with several other bow makers. I can even refer you to a custom bow maker that will make you the exact bow you want even down to string color and it shoots great. If it's your first go on trade stuff then I'd even consider used bows. Trad bows aren't like compounds in that even a 40 year old bow will shoot lights out if keep in good condition. An old Bear Grizzly is one of the best bows you can get. In my experience a recurve is a little easier to learn to shoot and a little easier to get good at shooting. I have both and love both but the first I'll take into a woods is a recurve. Do you know anyone up that way that shoots Trad bows cause if so you should go out and shoot with them and see what you think. They'll be able to help you see differences in bows and how they shoot. What I was told when I first started shooting was to go by a used 150 to 200 dollar bow and see what I thought. Well I got hooked but a lot of guys go away from it cause it's not easy to learn and get good at. Also if you want some killer cedar arrows there is a guy in Kentucky that makes them for about 80 a dozen with the tips and nocks and that's a good deal. You can pick whatever colors you want for the arrows as well. I think you'll like it and enjoy the challange of it. Not sure if I've helped or not but I'm more than open to answering questions

I'm glad I am able to help. I actually have a take down recurve I might be willing to sell. Just don't use it. It is a PSE blackhawk Heritage with 50 pound limbs and 60 pound limbs as well as a soft case. It's nice having two sets of limbs and it breaks down enough to fit into a back pack for longer hikes. Been debating on keeping it or not but I have several others. Bow is only a couple of years old and in mint condition. I'll post up some pictures if interested. Not looking for much out of it other than something in the 200 dollar range

I thought I would lean towards a recurve. When I take my new bow in for tuning, I will see if he has one I can shoot. Black Widow has a program were you can get a loaner to test out. You get refunded your money minus the shipping charge if you decide not to get it. Thanks for the info.

As I said there isn't a better trad bow out there than the Black Widow. I've been lucky enough to shoot a couple. Just more than I can afford. That's a good program though and a great way to see if you like them. Good luck with the search
