Hey everyone on 3Dshoots!
I'm from Malaysia and lately i've picked up interest in Archery
Though i have seen lots of archery videos on Youtube and also been down to one of the leisure archery ranges around here (target shooting, but i have no idea about postures and how to shoot properly). I gave it a lot of thought and ive decided on getting my own equipment to seriously get into Archery
I've read a few threads in here, but i still am rather confused and i dont know how do i get started.
So here goes my questions list :
1. What sort of bow would i be looking for? This question has been answered in a lot of threads but none are kind of the answers i want :O i mean, i know different types of bows are for different purposes, but which is more beginner friendly
? Recurve or Compound?
2. What kinds of arrows are best suited for beginners? Wood? Fiberglass? Composite? The ones i've held and used in the leisure ranges seem to be either fiberglass or something, i cant really tell (and they use plastic vanes or fletchings i think?)
3. I'm just a normal University student so i'm on quite a limited budget. What are the more standard beginner bows and their prices? Giving some links would be awesome
(just so i can compare)...furthermore where i am, there isnt a store i can just go to and pick it out, so most likely i'd have to get it through online mail order :O
4. I'll be moving to Melbourne (Australia) sometime in February next year (transferring campuses), is there anyone on this forum from Australia or better yet Melbourne who can help me out with Archery? It would be great to get involved with you guys
i'd pick it up faster!
last but not least, thanks for reading my "long" post and patiently answering my questions
