Rekindling Archery Experience Need Help With Bow Size Weight
Hi, I used to dabble in archery when I was younger and I am looking to rekindle this (I am 24 now).
I have gone through and read all the articles on your site (very nice by the way), and have determined my measurements and what not. I stand 5'10" but only weigh around 118 lbs. I am looking to use a traditional (not Olympic style) recurve bow. I guess you could say my experience with a bow in somewhere in between beginner and intermediate. I am right hand dominant, but left eye dominant.
My measurements for a bow according to your articles are:
Draw length: 29" (28.8" actual)
Bow size: 68"-70"
Bow weight: 26-38 pounds
I am a bit lost on a few things. Firstly, should I get a left-handed bow because my left eye is stronger? Being skinny, my left arm is not nearly as strong as my right, which poses some issues. Secondly, the pound range is pretty wide, and I was wondering if there was a way to narrow it down somehow.
Finally, I am having a lot of trouble finding anywhere that sells 68"-70" recurve bows at all. I was wondering if you had any suggestions on where I should look to find this and maybe suggest a brand?
I am still relatively new to all this and am trying to make sure I go in at least somewhat educated.
Thanks in advance,
