This bow is filled with lots of good things going for it. It’s taken the youth model and scaled it down just a bit more for the younger and smaller crowd. This means that you’ll have a well-balanced and real bow for when your child is ready to have the real thing. The construction quality is good.
This is a sturdy bow that’s easy to change weight with. I’d easily recommend this to anyone who is looking for quality in a bow. It’s mostly setup on arrival with just the quick easy adjustments needed to make sure everything is attached right and the bow is set to the draw length and weight that you want. That all takes about 10-20 minutes and then you’re ready to go.
This is a more expensive bow and it does have better parts. The biggest con that I’ve found is the bow sight. You can be gentle with it and it should do fine for a while. I’d also mention that this bow is pretty high quality so you need to make sure that this is something your child is interested in before you go spending the money. If they like archery, then this bow is a great choice. If it’s a passing fad, you might want to try something a little cheaper to see if they’re actually interested or not.
The maximum draw length is 24″ which will probably be the limiting factor in how long you can use the bow. I’d recommend taking a bit to find out your child’s draw length and making sure that there is a little room to grow before getting this bow. The length is all relative to the size of your child so I can’t give you an exact number on anything.
It’s priced around $195-220 on Amazon. As always, I recommend reading all the reviews there and any other websites you find to make sure that you are getting the best item for you.
