As above,I shoot my longbow in much the same way I shoot my recurve.
The only real difference I find is that I have to be more carefull about my form with my longbow as it’s quite a bit lighter than my metal risered recurve.
It’s a great form builder.

Due to that extra wheight on the recurve I find it more stabile and as such ” more forgiving of form errors.
For this reason I love my longbow because I enjoy being pushed to shoot properly,,,plus it’s straight out beautifull as well.

At a shoot last weekend 20 longbowers,,7 recurvers,,7 compounds.

Next weekend is a big one for us,,,I rang the organisers tonight,,,apparantly the longbow field is going to be huge.

The tide is turning,,,Yeeeha!8)
