For parts and pricing, check out Lancaster Archery Supply: Archery Equipment, Archery Supplies & Archery Products

Do it. I shoot Olympic just for fun because I like the style and find it challenging. I have no desire to compete, I just shoot for fun. And I'll second Lancaster archery, they are a great place to buy gear.

Also, if you are looking at recurves, Samick has some nice recurves in both olympic and more beginner oriented take downs. I shoot a hoyt horizon (mostly because it is the only olympic style my local shop carried) but if I had to do it again I would go with Samick. They are much more affordable and even take the same limbs as Hoyts so you can mix and match.

It could beone of many different brands. If you are interested in it, make sure you find out the poundage and draw length before you buy it to make sure that it is a good fit for you.

Some sort of reflex/deflect long bow with a recurve style riser.

Main thing is to look down the length of the bow from one end to the other and make sure it isn't twisted or warped. Then you can check to see who makes it, poundage, etc. looks like it could be a custom job and should have the bowyer's name and specs written on it somewhere.

And of course more pics would help a lot.

On that bow above, how "in shape" are you?
a 60 pound draw will burn you out quickly if you're just target shooting.

Messed with my dad's old bow, It was a 90lb draw with only like a 40%let off, that's insane trying to pull back, good luck shooting more than 5 times.

He was saying that it is adjustable. I'm going to check the specs online tonight and go take a look tomorrow. Decent price though?
