Which type of bow, and why?
Is it just a matter of taste or are there some important characteristics that I should be aware of? So far I have only shot recurve (and compound), but are getting curious about longbows.
I get a bit confused though when I read about "the speed of a recurve" vs. "the pointability of the longbow" etc. I know that pound for pound the recurve is faster, but not much with the modern reflex/deflex longbow. And normally I hear that a recurve is more accurate, but that dosent fit with the saying that a longbow is more forgiving..
I guess there are someone out there with experience that can cive me an advise or 2.
