NOTE: There is a simple way to determine the best bow recurve or compound.

Recurve take your STR Group and get a pull in that range. So for STR Grp 3, use a 24lb bow.
Compound, add 2 to your STR Grp. For STR Grp 3, that is a 44lb bow. If you go to a 55lb bow, your damage goes to 2D10+2 vs 2D10, BUT your rate of fire goes to one every other action. Thus your DPS get cut in half.
STR Grp 3 - 24lb bow, 44lb compound bow!
