Im interested in recurves. I have never shot one but compounds are getting too pricey for all the pieces needed. If one would fit a long draw shooter (no idea if recurves go to 32.5"dl comparable to compound) I would be interested in starting trad archery and I guess i have to start somewhere
There's alot to trad archery, and alot to learn.
Get with a local club and seek out the trad guys.
Explain what you would like to do.
Do not put on "airs".
Do not think that compound knowledge will transfer over to trad.
Trad is like golf. Compound is like shooting a rifle.
You might be a great shooter, but that doesn't mean you will be a great golfer.
Shooting trad will mess with your compound shooting and visa-versa.
Some will pooh-pooh that statement.
Once you shoot a trad bow, the bug either bites or it does not.
If it does, sell your compound and don't look back.
