Id like to see you say that to a Mongolian archer
Their bows out performed anything else in the region (steppe region) until gun powder.

LOL! I've heard this discussion so many times!! lol
I have a friend who only uses re-curve bows and says that only "real men" use them and wussies use compounds. lol
Then, on the other end of the spectrum, I have friends who say that compound bows are "technology" and far better than "Neanderthal? bows. lol
Me personally, I use whatever works, and have both and like both. You can like both!!!!
No, longbows and Mongolian bows are real man's bow. I hate recurves with a passion.
