I am looking to upgrade from a PSE Kingfisher. I am looking at getting a Hoyt Dorado 50#. I am roughly a 30" draw. Would this bow be able to fit my draw length? Also what arrows should I use with this bow? I have Maxima Blue Streak 350 arrows. Would those work?

If you like stacking it'll be great!
Seriously, the ones I've tried couldn't handle ny 29" draw.

Same recommendation, get an ILF rig.

I'm going to second Viper on this one. You'd be much better off with the Gamemaster II. Same sized limbs but the extra 2" on the riser make it much smoother. And depending on your point weight, I should think that 350's on a 50# bow would be just fine.

Great! I will look into getting a Hoyt Gamemaster 60". Does the Gamemaster have an ILF? I am thinking about switching arrows. What arrows would you recommend with a recurve?

I wouldn't.
Same mediocre limbs and while it's not ILF there are conversion kits, but why bother?

Go for an Excel or TT Titan/Pinnacle riser and almost any ILF limbs.
It will cost you less and you'll get more bow.

Arrows are your call, I prefer aluminum.

Thanks for your advice!
Pinnacle 2 19" at lancaster archery is $270
Titan 3 19" riser is $450
long Black Max limbs are $220
Does that sound about right?

Either of the risers are fine based on your preferences and budget.
The Titan will offer more options (biggest being cut past center shot), but is more expensive.

The BM limbs are fine, but you won't loose much (if anything) by going with the less expensive glass wood limbs.

You will have to add a string.

Ok, great thanks! I am going to go for the Excel riser with TradTech Black Max limbs. Any recommendations on arrows?

If you want carbons, probably around a 500 spine.
For aluminum, 1916 or 2016s to start.

In either case it will depend on exact weight, draw length, arrow length and head weight.

Awesome thank you so much for your help. I am leaning between the Excel Hoyt riser and the Galaxy 2 riser with carbon wood black max limbs. I will start looking into some carbon 500 arrows.
