Hello everyone. I recently bought a new re-curve bow from Cabelas (50 lb draw but I am a big guy, 6'2, 215 lbs and in good shape). I haven't shot one in years and figured it would be fun to pick back up. I am regularly a compound bow shooter. I have both a Hoyt and a Matthews. I hunt with a compound and not to float my own boat, I shoot really well with a compound. Now for the problem with the re-curve. Almost every shot the string hits the top of my wrist/bottom of my palm. I use an arm guard but I still leave a nice bruise every time I shoot for an extended period of time. I'm hitting my target with every shot, so I guess that is good. I am shooting with more of an open stance than I do with my compounds. Meaning my chest is more centered towards the target, as opposed to compound where left arm is more in line with the target. I have never had this happen with a compound (thank god). So what the heck am I doing wrong?
