I'm a beginner and I'm going to be buying my first bow soon. I was wondering if someone could point me to the benefits of either starting with a recurve or compound. Everyone I've asked so far says it doesn't really matter what you start on, but I still don't buy it.
Also, how do I know what makes a good bow? Manufacturers like Hoyt have soooo many bows in their line, it's hard for a beginner to tell.. Thanks!
