Maple longbow sighted and Gravite shortbow which is better when doing clan war on f2p runescape?

maple longbow sighted has a +110 and the gravite short has i think +47. If you want more accuracy choose the longbow sighted, but if you want faster speed choose the gravite shortbow. keep in mind that the longbow sight costs 10k tokens while the gravite shortbow costs 40k tokens and the gravite shortbow you have to keep repairing it, from 0% to 100% charged it costs 1 million GP. The longbow sight doesnt need repairing you buy it once and it's yours unless you lose it, you will have to buy a new one.
