I'm shooting 50 to 54# @ 28" (my DL is 26.75")with my longbows and can't really go any higher on the poundage for hunting. So I'm looking for a bow that has the most "PUNCH", longbow or recurve? Should I switch to a recurve? Are these more efficient at delivering more penetrating power at the same poundage as a longbow? I'm going to Africa in june 2014 but can't shoot any more poudage accuratly so I'm looking for the best setup. I'm now shooting a kanati and a morrison longbow, but really looking into the widows recurves.
