    So I've been hunting with a compound for 20 years but decided to buy a recurve for something different. I used to shoot longbows and recurves in college, but they belonged to the archery club. I wasn't Byron Ferguson but I wasn't bad either. Anyway I bought a #50 pse anthem. After research it seemed like a good entry level bow.
    My question is.... I know I'm going to be buying new arrows and broadheads but what else do I need. I don't plan on shooting a finger tab but I'm not opposed to trying one either. Likewise what grain broad head and spine arrow would be a good starting point?
    I also know I'm going to have to tune the thing so any tips are appreciated.

    I have a couple of recurves that I shoot. They both have the magnetic wire rests, so feather fletchings. I've thought about going to a tab as well but currently use the 3 finger glove. On broadheads I have bought up all the discontinued Carbon Express XT4's I can find, 100gr. Or I use Bee Stinger Magnus 150gr. My arrows are my previous set that I used with my compound, carbon GT340's or I shoot Easton Gamegetter XX75 2317 when hunting.


    Not for nothing but getting back into traditional archery you may want to get a set of 30-35# limbs, you can shoot all day and not get tired. I have a recurve that is 32# @29" and it's just fun to shoot.
