Different Recurves Size Length

by J

Dear all,


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:

[Draw Length]

Arm span of 70.55 inch divided by 2.5" = 28.22" [28.5"]

Or

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.
Best regards

"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?)"

Yes - Take-Down recurve bows allow you to change limb size and draw weight however, you are almost always restricted to the manufacturers and/or model style limbs.

With the ILF (International Limb Fixture) system you may use any ILF limb on any ILF riser.
