      If you have $1000.00 to spend on a bow, you can get just about
      any bow you would want with the exception of those aluminum/carbon
      precision arrow- launching-machine-monsters that they shoot in NAA and
      Think big. Don't settle for the "production" bows that have been
      mentioned so far (Black Widow and Fedora excepted) have your dream bow
      made for you by a top notch custom bowyer. Before you buy and settle on
      a bowyer, go to one of the larger traditional archer rendezvous and see
      what's available and speak with the bowyer. There is a major rendezvous
      in July at Denton Hill (Penn.) where many great bowyers show up. Check
      the magazines,
      Trad. Bowhunter, Primitive Archer, Instinctive Archer,for ads for up
      coming events.
      I like Texas Longbow and Recurve, as as bowyers, Bill Matlock and
      Herb Meiland are others. These people all make beautiful (traditional
      looking) recurves and longbows, (no big cut-out
      windows or pistol-grips) just FAST shooting accurate bows that have no
      string-follow or hand-shock. They will make the bow to your specs, draw
      draw length, look and color. IT will cost you between $450-$800.
