I have tried the ads but so far I haven’t found a 25 to 30lb bow....If you know someone who wants to sell one, will consider a riser bow with weak limbs I can pull back with little strain or a long recurve target bow....I miss target shooting .

I hope this isn’t against the rules....if so, a mod can delete it for me...

Recovering from a Rotator Cuff (or any shoulder injury) surgery is not for sissies. (speaking from experience)

You might spend (quite) some time using band type stretching and strength exercises before setting up to pull a bowstring. Flexibility (in spite of your form and release) is paramount to good muscle/tissue health.

Do not hurry, lest you go backwards.

YMMV

Might be time to consider an ILF bow. Last spring I bought a set of limbs, 22 pounds for 62 bucks shipped from the UK.

Didn't you have an ILF rig/riser a while back?
If so, just get a pair of the cheapest, ah, least expensive ILF limbs you can find, they go down to 16# @ 28".

Since it's a rehab bow, just use whatever arrows you have.

Viper1 out.

That sounds like a winner....the best shooting bow I had when I hurt my shoulder was a SF from UK....

I have a #40 @28" recurve also (I don't know much about traditional shooting so you would have to bear with me on that bow bought maybe 2 years ago shot it 10-20 times my job takes, to much time to shoot it.

Send me a pm if interested in it.

Do you think it is worth the money?

Yes. If you go on YouTube you'll find tons and tons of reviews. It's basically become the best entry-level bow for the money (unless you are absolutely against buying Chinese manufacture).

I have a 29 pound recurve, wood handle, bolt on limbs. It's one of those Italian bows sold through Bass Pro/Cabelas. I'll make you a heck of a deal on it.
But I'd recommend a Diamond Infinite Edge Pro. I bought one and used it while doing rehab from shoulder surgery.

Was planning to sell locally but I have a 67-68 Ben Pearson Cougar in good condition. It was a bow I got from an estate sale for people to try trad, but I purchased a dual shelf Bear Alaskan just the other day. Don't need both to fill the same niche.

62" marked [email protected]", actual weight #[email protected]" by my count (for what it's worth I don't have a fancy draw scale, just a digital fishing scale). Some dings but glass looks good and limbs are straight. New B55 flemish string. Trade for a nice blade? I've seen your work and have always admired it, I'd love to work something out with you.

I’m a little concerned about the DW....I have a 29 and a half inch DL so that would up the DW 2 to 3lbs....I need to stay at 30 or less....I too would like to make a deal with you....
