When I visited Border, Sid let me try a whole bunch of longbows. For the life of me, I can't remember which I liked the best but I seem to recall the Raptor suited me. Just in case you think I am coming across as a Border fanatic (which I guess I am) I also have a Dryad Orion that I am very fond of (47# at 28"). I'd be interested to know from the Dryad and Border longbow owners out there, which are their favourites and why. Or, if you don't much fancy either of those brands, what do you use and why.
