Long bow

I will resonate with what most have already said and recommend starting with a lighter draw weight. You will learn to shoot better quicker. I started with a 45 lb and then ended buying another in 25 lb. You will not see blazing speeds but the 25 lb is much more enjoyable to shoot and refine shooting technique. I will get blasted for this but I just use cheap feathered carbons. Both of my bows are Samick Sages. Really nice bows and are inexpensive.

For reference, I shoot 68 lbs draw weight on my compound bow. For the recurve I usually grab the 25 lber.
