All great advice.  I would reiterate that practicing with a low draw weight to work on your form is paramount.  Like 25#.  No reason to be He-Man or Rambo although that's sort of goes along with the culture here at times.  I would also recommend taking the time to meet with an archery instructor is a great idea.  I did and it helped me a lot.  It's beneficial to have someone who has been shooting for years watch you and point out little things like hand and shoulder positioning which can help you reach that consistency which is so key in trad archery.

If you have proper skeletal alignment at full draw it will help alleviate some of that draw weight.  This is a big deal once you take off the training wheels.  Good form, using back tension, and getting a consistent anchor in the same spot are all so important.

Predator, Wes Wallace, Schafer, Stalker, take your pick.  They all look good.  Except Black Widows. ;)

Be careful with Trad archery.  There are many beautiful bows and you may have a collection before you know it.
