The Stallion if you're more towards hunting. The 3DXL if you're looking to do more target work. I think the Stallion handle is only RH so what he does for lefties is use a LH Stingray handle. Give them a call.

Roger runs a left handed Stingray. He might have some input.

If (and that is a big if) I was going to shoot sights on a recurve I would use a ring and nothing else. I would determine the exact size of the ring so besides centering it at 20 yards, the top of the ring would be 10 yards and the bottom 30 :)

Great info on bow selection and sights. I don't recall where I read it but I seem to have read that the grip on the Quinn stingray may be on the thin side and not fit too well to big hands. I have big hands. I like the Quinn bows, and contacted the company. Yes they will put the Stallion limbs on the Stingray riser for Lefties.
Can anyone give any input on this Quinn bow?

I've got a right handed Stingray..extremely good bow but the riser is a thinner version of the Stallion (which I still want to get) and an XL handle..(which I got and it is SWEET)
If you got big hands, you'd probably be better off getting something like an XL3D in a shorter bow length . I got a 68" 40#er for target shooting, but man is it a shooter!Check with Quinn's on what available for you.

You could get a wooden risered Longhorn too, they have a bigger grip.

Or wrap the grip in whatever you want. You can always make a grip bigger. Making it smaller isn't such an easy thing.

I'm using a sight with my old bear kodiak magnum. I'm really starting to see results. Finally getting the feeling of it. I'm just wondering, what's it like shooting an "upgraded" bow. I've never shot any other recurve but my bear. I was told here:

"If you get to a point where you want to upgrade your bow, a good bow to upgrade to is a Quinn Stallion. The grip is a lot more forgiving than that Bear, it's cut past center so your arrow spine isn't as critical, it's already got sight and stab holes in it, and it has performace that rivals most of the high end Carbon olympic rigs."

I'm curious, is there really a big difference,?
