    My new bow(traditional archery pron)

    A Flanagan longbow made by GW Flanagan. Cocobola with cocobola and bamboo limbs. This was my Christmas present but I wasn't able to make it to his shop to shoot them until this weekend. I'm glad I waited instead of just ordering because I was going to get a recurve but after shooting them I fell in love with this beauty. I was going to take some nice pics with my good camera but I couldn't wait to share so you get crappy cell phone pics. As you can imagine these pics don't do the bow justice.

    that is bad azzz....thing is a beauty! Out of curiosity to a guy who knows practically nothing about traditional...what are the differences between recurve and longbow...I know the physical difference, but do they shoot different, forgiveness, require different form or technique? What swayed you to the long bow vs. the recurve?
