I used to shoot a recurve all the time when I was younger and I wanted to pick one up again. I got the 40# Sage 2 wks. ago and have been shooting it every day having a great time. It shoots very well. I want to thank all the guys who offered help and advice to get me started again. I still have lots of questions and have a lot to learn but plan on enjoying the journey.

Currently shooting the fast flight string w/beaver puffs, Beaman Centershot 600's, and True Flight 5" shields fletched with right helical on my Bitz. My DL is 27" so approx. 38#'s. I'm shooting off the shelf but think I need to add a toothpick to the strike plate and under the bear hair rest as I'm getting a little nock contact. I'll tune more later to get rid of that. I haven't touched my compound since getting the recurve.....it's just not as fun lol!!!

A note......I thought it was really cool how the label on each shaft was perfectly lined up in that group....I swear I didn't touch them to do that!!

Thanks Thin Man.

I'm so glad that I have been "bitten" by the Trad. bug. Everything about it feels so natural and "right". I did shoot my compound a couple of times Sunday and it truly felt like an alien object in my hand despite the thousands of arrows that have gone thru it!

I am shooting true "instinctive" and it is hard to describe the emotions I feel when I see a perfect arrow flying through the air and hitting that tiny spot I was concentrating on. I feel very blessed to have this forum and the wisdom that so many have shared with me!

Thanks again guys!!!

Having fun, that's what it's all about! X2 here, my compound has only been shot once since I bought a recurve and I now own 3 recurves. I just can't get enough and think about it when I am not shooting, they are hard to put down.
