hello robinhoodsgirl! Nice to see new blood here.
I have not shot any nor seen any physically but go to longbow.com. He has English style and even has one in the Lord of the Rings style. Most of the draw weights are only 35 pounds.
If you want to look at some English longbows made in england go to www.bickerstaffebows.co.uk
Good luck with your new long bow.
I build and shoot various styles of osage bows... am building a D bow that bends from tip to tip, cherokee hunting bow, I have three osage flat bows, and one Pecan flat bow,
I do know you want your arrows 10-15# lighter then poundage of bow if it is NOT Center shot..like recurves and compounds..
Dont get discouraged.... practice at close range 7 to 10 yards. then move back as you improve. you almost have to shoot a longbow,recurve year round to stay accurate...
I shoot 3 d all spring and summer then hunt all winter.. we have 100 days of archery season here in Oklahoma..
