Carbon for recurve

Post by ArcherAdam on Tue Jan 03, 2012 10:32 pm

Hey guys! Got my hands on an old Colt Game Master recurve. Its 52#@28" and 60". I really want to get back into shooting traditional after a 20 year break. Are any of you stick bow shooters shooting carbon? If so, what is your setup? Do you add any extra weight? I plan on using a 125 or 145 grain head and either 3 or 4 4" feathers (I have a good stock of them). I do have some Bear Razorheads here I plan on using.

Soon I will be going to get a new string and see what my real draw length will be . I am a 29" with the compound. I imagine I will be a little less with this bow.

Any arrow reccomendations are greatly appreciated.

I shoot an old Kodiak special at 42# @ 28" and I shoot Easton ST epic nano 600s cut to 30". I have a 300gr point up front and a 9" wrap with 4 5" shield cut feathers out back. I put a rather healthy amount of helical on the feathers too. This setup shoots like a dream for me.

Really, unless your going for nostalgia purposes,carbon arrows are the way to go.

I have but I keep busting limbs due to the light weight. I went back to Aluminum's for that reason
