      Hi!

      I'm 5'2, looking for a recurve, right handed, 35lb draw, 28" draw length.
      I'm getting so confused looking at everything out there. I dont want to spend $500, but if i can find a good used bow i'll be happy with that.
      can someone send me in the right direction? help!

        relatively cheap, and roughly 2 lb increments from 20 lbs to 40 lbs

          Greetings,

          I don't have a bow to sell you but I'm wondering what is making the decision confusing. You sound like you know very much what you want.

          At 5'2", I would be surprized that your drawlength is 28". If it is shorter, are you looking for 35 lbs at 28" just to get a decent poundage at your actual drawlength? Drawlength will also play into how long your bow needs to be. A short drawlength might get away with a recurve that was 60" or 62" long while a longer draw might need the length to be 66" or even 68" long.

          Are you new to archery and looking for your first bow or an eperienced archer looking to upgrade? If a newbie, I would second the suggestion to check out the Ragim Wildcat.

          While I prefer the look of a one-piece (that much closer to period), a takedown fits into a trunk much easier.

                You are in luck. You live only a reasonable drive from Greybarr
                Traditional Archery in Williamsfield, Ohio on Rte 322. Williamsfield
                is the first town (if you can call it that) West of Lake
                Pymatuning. Greybarr has an entire barn (no kidding) full of used
                recurves and longbows and also sells new. The advantage of buying
                from Greybarr is that he has a target set up in his barn so that you
                can test shoot (regardless of weather) any bows that interest you
                before buying. His number is (440)293-4564. He will likely be
                selling at Aethelmearc War Practice. Greybarr also makes arrows and
                is a cool guy.
