For this range report I wanted to compare the penetration of a compound bow vs. the recurve. I purchased a new target so that if I hit any worn or damaged areas on the target it wouldnt give me a false reading. I have shot the Mathews LX compound for almost 4 years now and absolutely love this bow. It has almost become an extension of my arm. Yesterday was the first day I shot the Martin Jaguar, however, it seems to be a great bow. It is very different from the compound in that it has no sights.....almost like shooting from the hip with a pistol. My shooting buddy also enjoyed shooting the bow. He has a bigger draw length than i do, so I believe the Martin Jaguar would be a good choice for all archers capable of a 50lb draw.
