    Thanks everyone for the posts. Lots of great feedback! I have shot compound bows most of my life and shoot 70+#'s. I have shot recurves before for a few years. I was shooting a 50# bear kodiak and loved the bow. Sadly it was one of my best friends bows and he passed away some years back and I have also moved away so I do not have access to it anymore. I shot the bow really well and the 50# was terrible. I practiced holding the weight back to strengthen my muscles as well as shooting aerial targets we would throw to one another. I will have to check all these sights out and see what I can come up with. Thanks again I really appreciate the info!

    New to the forum but have been lurking for a while. I was checking this site out for an elk hunt that I wanted to use a traditional bow with. I now shoot a RER lx which is a three piece takedown longbow. Its awesome but I need heavier limbs for it and was going to order a set of static recurve limbs. Check them out!

    Another idea is to look at some of the "vintage" bows you can still find. I've really gotten into the bows frm Browning, Howatt, etc from the 60's-70's lately. I love old stuff, with history, and shot many of these bows as a kid. They still shoot GREAT, and are really reasonably priced most of the time. Plus you don't really take the hit on resale that you take on custom bows. If you spend $150 on a Browning Explorer 1 or 2 you will get what you paid for it and then some out of it, and it will outshoot lots of custom bows out there that $600-$1000. You just need to look at lots of pictures and make sure limbs are straight and no cracks in the lams... but usually those old bows were pretty sturdy rigs.

    I love traditional. Carefree and far less things to keep in check than compounds. Far more rewarding. I am still working down the limbs to the point where I can begin bending them.

    Check out the PSE Kudu. Been shooting mine for quite some time. Smooth and pretty fast @ 55#. Won't break the bank and it is a fantastic looking bow . And it is a take down model.
