There are many sites that you can go to and find quality recurves. One is 3RiversArchery.com. I have shot several brands (Fedora, Black Widow, Bear, etc.) and presently using a custom made Robertson Stykbow.

If you are moving over from a compound you'll find that your true draw length will be less as your shooting form will change so don't be concerned about the length. The book "Instinctive Shooting" by G. Fred Asbell can give you lots of help in all areas.

A good bow will change in draw weight apprx. 4# per inch of draw; If you have the bow made for 55# @ 28" and you draw 29" you will be pulling 59#. Do not get caught up with going for a lot of poundage as you will be pulling and holding the full weight - not like the 80% let-off on some compounds. I have shot completely through many deer using my 58# bow. Proper bow set-up, correct arrows and sharp broadheads will do more than a heavy weight bow that is out of adjustment. Good luck.
