Not really new to archery, I bought my Bear recurve in 1973 when I was 15 and still shoot it.Had a couple other recurves over the years. They are simple.
I'm new to compounds and I've bought a couple older ones to target shoot with because I don't hunt and didnt want to buy a new bow with stuff on it I don't even know what it is.The Martin I bought feels good, but like I said, I need more draw and weight.I actually bought it hoping my wife would try. No success. I like 45lbs and the bow suppose to top out at 45, but I put it on a scale and only get around 36. It feels good and is good for technique, but no distance or power.
I can shoot instinctively fairly well and have no desire for a sight, etc
I just want the bow I'm trying to shoot with perform well and feel natural for me when drawing and aiming.
I also bought a Hoyt medalist, which I wanted for myself.
The Martin feels best, the Hoyts grip feels big, however it ranges from 45-60. Plenty of power. Been trying to tune them in today best I know how, I almost got depressed. Another day and my nerves will be calm. I wish I could put the two together and make one. But I shall not give up. I've put a pic up of both. I just enjoy older bows. Maybe I need to buy a new one?
One weak bow, one bow that doesnt feel right, and a wife that says its boring. And laid off from work.
What a week.
