I would appreciate any thoughts/recommendations for an olympic recurve setup.
After 20 years away from the sport, I started shooting again a couple of years ago. My current bow is a Hoyt Contender Elite compound and I would like to get back into recurve shooting as well. Unfortunately, there is not much opportunity for me to try out bows where I live, and local archery shops don't really carry olympic recurve bows, so I'd like to at least get some input from other shooters. I'd love to try before I buy, but that's not really feasible.
I'm 5'11" tall, and my draw length is 29"
I'm currently looking at getting a Hoyt Formula RX riser and Hoyt Formula Carbon 720 limbs.
My biggest question right now is whether to go with a 25" or 27" riser, and whether to go with short, medium, or long limbs? What combination thereof?
Any help would be great, especially if you're of similar height and draw length! Thanks!
