Different Recurves Size Length
I'm interested in trying out archery, and more specifically with the Recurve bow.
This for indoors target archery, with eventually some competition - but that's not the main goal.
According calculations done on my side, with the tips and hints from this website here - I've came to the following:
Arm span of 70.55 inch divided by 2.5" = 28.22" [28.5"]
70.55 inch minus 15, divided by 2 = 27.7" [~28"]
28" resulting in a 68" Recurve bow (correct?)
As for my [Draw weight], I'd figure 20-22pounds as I'm a fairly young adult (25y) and not all that muscles if you know what I mean :)
Now I'm wondering if there's any difference in picking an Olympic or Traditional Recurve with above calculations? Assuming that the above goes for Olympic, and Traditionals being smaller in size?
I also, whether or not correctly, assume that Take-Down-Recurves come in more handy than one-piece-recurves for the sheer fact that you can change the parts to higher or lower draw weight (not?)
Pleased to hear.
