Their are so many choices in Hill style or ASL.Plus many design choices even within those parameters.

In the mild R&D I would look at Northern Mist Superior,Dwyer Original and the Great Northern Critter Gitter is excellent.Might even consider the Great Northern Bushbow.But its got a wider limb and and does not come in 66 or 68 inches.But its a mild R&D with D shape strung up and offered in 64 inches.Yellowstone makes one as well I believe and Kimsha Mowattoman.

I think the Super D was redesigned with more reflex a few years back.I heard it was an improvement over the original Super D which I had.I have not had the newer version.So you need to know about opinions on the newer version vs the older one.

Robertson might have one.I had quite a few Berry's,also Fredericks,Thundersticks original longbow and Mohawk originals and Mohawk Sparrowhawks.I think all are really good bows.Some are not made anymore unfortunately.

I hunted and shot 3-D with this style of bow for years back in the day.I cut my teeth on them.I do like them quite a bit.

I just sold a Mohawk Sparrowhawk.Very solid stick,strong shooter.

The Wes Wallace Royal longbow is nice but show slight reflex strung.Classy looking bow though.Dont forget the the Fox Traditional longbow.He builds nice bows for sure and his 2 piece is sweet.

Think of a typical "Hill style" ASL.  The grip is 1.5" to 2" deep with the limbs on a plane with the back of the bow.  With the forward handle, the plane of the limbs is at the belly.  So, given a two inch deep "Hill style" grip, compared to a forward handle, the forward handle limbs are being drawn two inches less.

So, this next may or may not be tested but here's what I'm thinkin. 

Given bows of each style that have equal draw weights when drawn by the same archer to the same anchor point, the H style will pe propelling the arrow through a power stroke that is two inches longer. Both bows accelerate the arrow continuously from departure from anchor point to the nock leaving the string. The forward handle will be accelerating the arrow two inches less and therefore with less speed (efficiency).

Could be stinkin thinkin but interesting to think about and discuss.

Great advice in the posts above. Make a few calls to Steve(NM) and Craig (HHA) and ask some questions. 

Good Luck with your choice

In my experience, the best thing to do with a new pain is to take ibuprofen or something for a few days and see if it goes away.  Ease into it when you start back.  Try to relax the muscles in your drawing forearm when you draw the bow; it should just be like links in a chain connecting your elbow to your hand.  If the pain comes back when you start shooting again, it might be time for some rehab.
