Your draw length with a traditional bow will likely be much less than with a compound.

Your draw weight will also need to come down.

The best single piece of advice I can give you is to find a traditional archery shop and go try out bows and get set up with some arrows.

The type of bow you get is relevant only to your sense of beauty and fun. What ever floats your boat is fine. Go cheap on your first bow though…

What is important is that you get a bow that doesn’t stress your bod too much, and that has matched arrows.

Good luck, and have fun with it!
