    Default Lohgbow Recurve draw weight recommendation

    I just started shooting a compound bow that is set at 60#. I am having a lot of fun with this and would like to buy a longbow or recurve bow. What Draw weight would be recommended for these 2 bows? Thanks for your help in advance.

    If You Have Access To A Few Recurves Or Longbows I Would Start Out At About 30# To Build Up Your Fingers And Back, And Top Out At 45#. To Many People Are Over Bowed, I Shoot Year Round At 50#

    I agree with what he said above..............I shoot a 70 lb compound and am shooting my recurve at 40 lbs. Feels good to me and I'm building my way up. Once I get to where these limbs are extremely easy I will look at getting some 45 or 50's............That's the good thing about a takedown.
