Recurve Longbow

Archery Question! Bow weights?

I am looling for a bow similar to the one shown in The Hunger Games. If you havent seen it,the bow i am looking for is a standard recurve longbow with a low drawback weight that will still shoot the arrows very fast. Not looking for anything above $55. If you didnt understand any of this, i basically want a plain longbow that is easy to pull back and will still shoot arrows really fast. Thanks.

Well, firstly there isn't any such thing as a "recurve longbow", as they only make one or the other. Some longbows do have some recurve characteristics like the reflex/deflex design, but for the most part they are two different forms of bow. Katniss Everdeen's bow that you see in The Hunger Games (Loved the movie and the style of the bow!) is a recurve. However, you're not going to find a low draw weight bow that has a very high arrow speed, because arrow speed is directly related to the draw weight. The heavier the draw, the faster the arrow will travel. I don't know how tall you are or what you weigh, but a good beginner weight would be somewhere from 20-35 pounds. Your arrows will not travel as fast, but starting out at a low weight will allow you to build up the required arm strength and learn the correct form needed to shoot accurately and without injury. After you learn the basics, you can then move up to a higher weight bow that shoots faster. A 45 draw weight is around what you would need for deer hunting, for example.
Unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge they don't make good quality bows, or even bows similar to Katniss Everdeen's, at the price you specified. I did see a replica bow made by a fan at that price, but it most likely would not hold up under heavy use, and in any case it sold long ago. Maybe they will make shootable replicas sometime in the future, but for now they don't.
For a good starter bow, you would most likely end up spending about 200 dollars. Try www.lancasterarchery.com for some options. Samick is a pretty good brand, so I would look at theirs.

Good luck finding your bow!
