I have a few extra bucks in my pocket this month and I have have burning desire to spend them . What I would like is some information, opinions, etc on D section longbows vs american flatbows for a beginner to the traditional archery realm. My experience is with olympic recurves up to the point, but I am really interested in the more rustic style of shooting.
I've had a chance to shoot both a Pacific Yew Longbow and a Scorcher Flatbow. Both were very enjoyable, but were at too high a poundage (close to 70#) for me to really make a good judgement.
I'm not looking to start a 'my bow is better than your bow' discussion. I'm just looking for some thoughts on the differences, any brands or bowyers whom I could approach, etc.
Thanks in advance!
