    My comfort poundage is 40# with a max of 45#. What are some of the faster one piece recurves to look at for a hunting bow? My current bows are 62”+ and I’m comfortable with that length and have never shot one shorter but would consider a bit shorter bow.

    I'm new to this field, and I came here because I inherited a couple recurve bows that I wanted to become proficient with. I'm learning a lot, but I've never shot a longbow, and I have a question about them: Is it generally true for bows with the same length and poundage that the recurve will be...

    So what do you get in higher dollar recurves over less expensive recurves? I’m not talking custom made but the more pricey manufactured ones.

    I see a lot of people use carbon arrows but not much about aluminums, is one more popular with traditional archery?

    I was wondering what heads are people hunting with? When I figured out how I want my bow set up after trying different things I ended up shooting off the shelf instinctive, that’s how I shot years ago shooting recurves. My bow tuned well with full length 600 and 150grns. So I bought Magnus...

    Hey guys, I just bought me a new spyder xl recurve, and I'm wondering if I can use it in 20 below temperatures, is that too cold, will the limbs break or crack? Thanks a lot.

    Can anyone fill me in on what's up with RER? Website for stone point isn't working, and Im not seeing any social media activity this year. Thanks!

    As a mostly recurve shooter I ask this in genuine ignorance, but as a general rule as I understand it, a recurve will stand a dry fire, an accidental release of a partially nocked arrow, a string breakage at full draw more so than a modern laminated longbow. If so, then breaking a limb on a...

    I’m going to do the majority of my recurve hunting with a #50 Browning Nomad Stalker and #57 Bear Kodiak Magnum. I’ve been shooting GT 340 Traditional’s off the shelf with 225 grain single bevel heads. Both bows are shooting the arrows well but the KM is a tad more finicky but has more speed...

    I have a lot of bows...started collecting Bear Kodiaks back in 1980. Then went to other brands Wings, Hoyts, Howetts etc. Also into more modern longbows and recurves. Big problem as I got older I went from shooting 75# to 40# bows. Got rid of most of my real heavy bows at least down to 60#...

    They seem to have these bows that pop up with no description. I know they're inundated with comms so thought I'd reach out to you good folks...

    Hey folks, As I am playing with my new set of MAX5, I am really struggling stringing my bow. Are there any stringers out there that you recommend for big hooks? Thanks,

    I remember starting that term on here. As a means to define a recurve that is too big to work without the use of cross weave carbon. I have just been told that all these technologies were available by a bowyer who has followed the super recurve route, before Border introduced the idea. So...

    Has anyone had a chance to put one of these things through its paces? I have always been impressed with the pointability and forgiveness of a forward handle bow and those big hooks look like they would really zip an arrow.
