    My draw length is 29". Do I purchase a recurve that is 28" and add the 2-3 lbs of draw weight at 29" or should I look for a bow that has a draw length of 29"?
    Thank you,
    Francis

    Unless you buy a custom recurve, they will always be measured at 28" of draw. So I would buy a 28" with the fact that at 29" you will be 2-3 lbs heavier.

    Re: Recurve Purchase

    Chris: Thank you for the quick reply. While I still have you on the "line", can you direct me to a company that sells the safety net for indoor shoots...about 40' - 50' long. I've been asked to start up a club of which I have accepted. I assume that a majority of the members will be new to this sport. I've gotten three (3) instructional videos and will be looking into buying supplies which a club would need. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Members will be both adults and youths.
    Thank you,
    Francis

    Saftey net, that one I don't know off the top of my head. I have not seen that in a while.
