I shoot instinctive with finger tabs which keeps the cost accessories low also.

There are lesser bows available for less money, but recurves can sometimes be found at real bargain prices even when new.
I have about 25 recurves. Half of them are Black Widows made for me. The last bow I bought was a used Assenheimer....a yr old when I bought it....about $500 if I recall.

Trad guys change bows more often than they change their drawers.
