If you're looking for a more traditional looking recurve bow for field or target shooting this great range of laminated wood bows is hard to beat for performance and value!
The polished riser is laminated from Chuglam (Indian Silver Greywood,) Gmelina and Beech for strength and stability, while the ergonomically shaped grip allows you to shoot comfortably for greater accuracy. The riser has a stabilizer mount built in should you want to fit one.
The laminated maple and fiberglass limbs give a smooth, fast release even on the lower draw weight bows.
The whole bow can be quickly assembled and taken down again allowing it to fit into any regular recurve bag making transport simple.
Also included is the string, arrow rest and adjustable target sight to complete the package.
This well-balanced, versatile bow is highly recommended for beginners and general sport use!

I bought a couple of these Jandao recurve bows in a recent sale: this 68" 26b bow, and a 66" 22lb draw bow. Both are perfect for the beginning user, and will probably still provide fun well into the future if you stick with the sport.
From my research, it seems that these are the same bow as may sport other brand names in the west, including the PSE Razorback. The HobbyKing price on these is the very best I've been able to find. It's a shame that they don't stock some of the other sizes, such as the 62, which would suit my 10yo son.
I have shot in the past when I was younger, and I've been shooting with this bow at my local club beginner sessions for the past few weeks. I enjoy using this bow much more than the random bows they assign at the club, and I save $5 per visit. The bow goes together nicely, feels solid but not heavy, and draws smoothly. It's getting tight groupings for me on the (admittedly, very close) target.
I am not tall, but have a longer than average wingspan for my height (168cm). My draw is around 28" or so for my ~178cm armspan. I have shot in the past with compound bows when I was younger, but this is my first foray into 'Olympic' style shooting. The weight is easy enough for me, and a good weight to develop 'form' (my 10yo boy finds 26lb a bit much though).
I will likely move up to a heavier bow if I continue with this sport (pretty much down to my son maintaining an interest), but at the price of this bow I have absolutely no regrets!
