I haven't shot my bows in a long time, years. I have an 80s-vintage Martin Lynx that I took to the (former) local archery shop and had fitted with fiber optic sight pins, peep, new arrow rest and tuned. I also have a Ben Pearson Puma recurve, that is warped after being left strung and sitting in my truck on a blazing hot day, apparently with something putting pressure against one end. Funny thing is that I had hardly shot it, so it seems to shoot pretty accurately, because there was nothing to adjust to. Basically, it being warped was the only way I ever knew it.
I like the recurve a lot more. It's just me and the bow, no adjustments, timing, releases or anything to deal with. If I miss, then it's my technique, and nothing mechanical to mess with. I'd like to to get a nicer recurve, one that's straight, and start shooting arrows again. It'd be fun to try a longbow, too.
