Bedrock — I love your term “real archery.” That’s it! But don’t look at me for sympathy for having to “drop” to the heaviest weight I’ve ever shot! And I used to be a weightlifter and trainer! Not knowing your financial situation but assuming you are trying to be thrifty, I strongly suggest that you sell that old classic elephant-bow and shop for a good used recurve — or reflex-deflex longbow — in your new weight range. You’ll come out ahead on both money and shooting satisfaction. For a personal example, maybe ten years ago I blew out a shoulder from shooting too much and had to drop 10 pounds in bow weight. Yet the new lighter bow shot 10 fps faster than the older heavier bow! One guy’s thots. dave
