out neighboring shires, but our group doesn't really have any loner
equipment, certianly not with the right weight and length for me.
There are not a lot of us and even fewer into archery. Our marshal
is still in training. I have used his bows, but since they are the
ones he actually uses, I can't keep doing that. At this point, I
really need a bow of my own. I like the idea of longbows, although I
hear they are harder to master. The price of the take down bows is
somewhat compelling. Can I use a takedown for competitions at all?
If I had the money, I'd probably go with the lower-priced new
recurves. I especially like this
the size and lower pound pull is exactly what I would like. (Okay,
that it's just really pretty doesn't hurt.) Pity it's about 3x what
I want to pay. I just am not sure enough of my interest to spend
that much yet.
Should I decide to empty the bank account...does anyone have any
practical experience with the Victory recurve?
Again, thanks to you all for any help you may give.
