Wooden handle take down bow, ideal starter bow for beginners. This bow comes complete with bow string, arrow rest and brass nocking points .
This riser uses bolt on limbs.
Limbs may come in either a black or white finish.
These risers have a maximum draw weight of 40#, note this is the maximum at your draw length which may differ to what is printed on the limb.
This bow is my first introduction to archery. I wanted a takedown recurve primarily on the grounds of ease of transportation and storage. I made my purchase in store, I advise anyone to do the same if possible.
I was allowed to test the bow limbs in store to determine whether the 30lb limbs I asked for (under guidance from an experienced archer friend) were suitable - they were. Coupled with the 24" riser I have the 66" variant of the bow. The staff ( forget their names - sorry) measured my draw length as well which made the purchase of arrows a lot easier. I went with the Easton XX75 Tribute's - a set of 8 premade. The arrows were cut to length as part of the transaction.
I've been shooting the bow for several weeks now. Assembly (which was demonstrated in the shop) is simple and straightforward. Make sure you buy a bow stringer as well as your limb warranty is pretty much toast if you don't use one. The bow is a joy to use and after a couple of weeks shooting 30mins a day I'm now grouping well (generally less than 75mm with 4 arrows) at 5m. The limbs can be changed for higher draw weights when the time is right.
As can be expected on a bow at this price point, the finish on the riser/handle isnt pristine, with a few dimples in the wood grain/finish, but this doesn't detract from the experience. I have small to medium sized hands for a bloke, and the pistol grip feels comfortable to hold.
All in all a very cost effective way of getting into recurve bow archery.
