Recurve bow
  • Also considered a "traditional" bow, the limbs are shorter than a longbow and curve back away from the belly of the bow, which can provide more power in a shorter bow than the longbow.
  • The recurve also features a "pistol-style" grip that adapts well for use with a bowsight or other accessories.
  • This bow is a popular choice because it's smooth, quiet, and fast-shooting.
