    recurves

    :welcome: Glad to have you,and yes i shoot bow's compound & recurves.
    I had a widow maker about 20year's ago i rember black widow first came out with that bow i ordered one cost $300.00 back then it took them 6 month's to build it custom fit .wife about killed me when she found out how much i spent.when i got that thing i was KING at the triditional shoot's and the bow shot good to.
    a guy offered me $500.00 a month later after he found out about the wait,& i had to let her go.
    One of the best bow's i ever held in my hand's, recurve that is.
