For those that have both recurve and longbow do you find one being quieter than the other with three under? The reason I ask is because I only have longbows and the extra noise from the bow seems to be the twang of the string. If that being the case would the felt pads on the recurve limb tips be better at stopping the twang than the longbow with beaver fur? Thinking of purchasing a recurve.
Thanks, Wes

If I shoot with tension in either of my hands 3 under the shot will be loud, and the recurves will be the loudest.

If both of my hands are relaxed and I draw the bow with my elbow (back muscles), the shot will be quiet with either. It will always be quietest with the longbow.
