Good afternoon all. I'm rather new to archery, and am interested in buying a recurve. While I don't have a ton of experience, I have fired both compound and recurve and prefer recurve due to compounds having the let off. I find it easier to aim with constant tension as opposed to the let off.
Still, even though I have my preference, I am eager to learn and am open to other points of view. It seems that there are many of you here that really know what you're talking about and have a great deal of experience.
As a first question, do any of you have any advice on a beginner recurve and arrows? I'm 6'2", 175lbs and of thin to athletic build, with a draw length of 30". As far as I know, I would prefer a 50-70lb draw. I should be going to Cabela's within the next few weeks to try some out, so I'm wondering what to look at. My budget is $300-$400 at most, but once I have some experience under my belt, I would like to upgrade to a better bow for the long run, and eventually a reflex bow. Mainly I am looking for an inexpensive, yet good quality recurve to start with.
