I read them to get some new tips on tuning and training.

I shoot the Olympic recurve-style. This style is leaning more to the traditional longbow, but with far more accuracy, which I like. It is still not a shooting-machine like the compounds are. But I think you should shoot with the bow of your choice, but with recurves, there is more human in it, IMHO.
I've always been interested in archery, but never had the time to test it, but, at last, in the late summer of 1999 I took some time to see if it was fun. I immediately fell for this sport. So I am a real beginner...:-D
I purchased a second hand Samick Progress II two months after I joined the local club. It is a good bow to start delving in the archery-mystics with. As soon as I grew more confident and learned more and more, I started to buy new things for the Samick like a new arrowrest, plunger and sight.
Now I have finally got my Yamaha and what a bow it is... MAGIC!
You really have to practice with the Yamaha, otherwise you easily loose the 'feel'. But if you train hard enough, this bow does whatever you want. I like the grip, which is very narrow. The limbs are VERY smooth...no stacking and have a fast response too.

Have trust in your equipment and in yourself. If you don't have that, you might as well go fishing...
