Ok so i got into archery a few months back. I bought a Parker Buckshot Compound bow. its a 30-40# set at 30#'s and a draw length of 25".
I've shot it only a few times and got very discouraged. I know there are lots factors such as form, wind, arrows, distance from target etc. But the thing im actually most frustrated with is actually my Sights. (which is one of those things thats spoused to make a compound easier.) It seems like no matter how i adjust things, even at like 15 yards or less, my grouping is still bad. I only have my bf to site me and hes a new to the hobby too, and i cant afford to go to a range because im unemployed and the nearest range is like an hour+ drive away.
SOOO this may sound crazy but i was thinking of actually trading my compound for a traditional. I don't know why, it seemed to me like i had better form and hit the target better with a traditional bow then i was using my compound and using sites. (but this was years ago, with a simple fiberglass bow.) However i know i have to do some research on this, but dont know where to begin.
But im not happy with the one i have now, its fine weight wise, draw weight wise, length and everything...but for some reason im not happy. I'm curious to know if id be happier with a traditional bow?
I'm seeking advice from all you traditional bow users! I don't intend on hunting with it, so a lightweight bow recommendation is fine. Id prefer something not too terribly expensive....or do you guys think im crazy? or are some people just more traditional bow-man then compound bow-man??
