The most popular traditional bow today. The reflex/deflex design of the limbs allows a recurve to shoot arrows fast. The larger size of the riser makes a recurve bow stable in hand for no handshock (vibration of the bow that hurts your hand). Recurves can be very accurate as they are normally cut to (or past) center so the arrow is pointing directly where you are shooting.
Offered as one-piece and takedown recurve bows, you find traditional recurves in all lengths and weights. Highly recommended for the beginner archer as they are easier to shoot, and many offer bushings for attaching accessories to your bow.
What Bow Weight for me?
If your focus is target shooting, then 45# or less is a good start. You need endurance for long periods of shooting, but enough cast (ability to shoot an arrow) to shoot distances. For bowhunters, check your local game laws, but the minimum weight normally ranges from 35-45# for deer sized game. Go with a weight that you can comfortably manage, most popular is 50# or 55#. NEVER over-bow yourself. Straining too much to pull a bow back will decrease your accuracy and even strain a muscle. Tip for compound shooters: Try going down 10-15# in bow weight from your compound when starting traditional archery. The two bows use different muscles to pull and no weight let-off, so do not match weight for weight. All bows on this page have bow weights measured at a 28" draw length. This is an industry standard.
