Very versatile starter
This is a great starter kit for kids. durable, and high quality riser and limbs. Fully adjustable(19-45 pounds and 21-27 inch draw length). Should last a starter shooter 5-7 years.
The rest is not very good. Changed it out for a whisker biscuit (easier for kids to load and hold). The arrows are a bit heavy as well. Just go pick yourself up some descent carbon arrows, cut to size for your son or daughter.
The quiver is also not so good. Change it out for a cheaper quick quiver.
My son was shooting 2 inch groups at 10 yards within 4-5 adjustments. I am guessing he will be doing this at 20 yards before too long.

OK for the price
Better bows are twice the price. This bow performs well but there are some minor issues. First the arrows are junk. Second it does have a wide range on the draw length and weight but the weight is tied to the draw length (for most this won't be and issue). There is an adjustment of 3-4lbs per inch of draw. You can't get the max draw weight until you have the max draw length and the same goes for draw length. If your child has a longer draw but not the strength yet it can only be lowered a few pounds.
That said it performs well for a starter bow. I have 2 boys and they are at the extream of each end. I put in the "B" modual for the younger and he pulls the max weight for that length but can't move up until he gets a longer draw. The older one uses the "F" modual and max's out the weight, so it works for both with a 10-15 minute change of moduals. Performance is OK at the shorter draws but much much better when at max. after a few adjustments and some carbon arrows I was pleased. **For the price it's a good one to learn with and once at max weight you could hunt with it.

good youth bow
After one archery outing, this seems to be a good bow for my 10 year old grandson with room to grow with him. Well made product, Very hard to understand instructons for a novice..the Bass Pro shop in Manteca CA was very helpful with phone advice even though I ordered the bow online.

Truth is right out of the package my youngest couldn't draw back the string, leading to a very disappointed little boy, however, after some time with the instructions and a couple adjustments we were throwin' arrows and not only throwin but hitting the target. This bow has alot of range as far as draw weight given the many cams and other adjustments and there's no reason I can see that would keep this bow from a hunting bow with proper arrows and sights
. The arrows that came with the unit didn't last long so I'd suggest getting "less fragile" ones and an archery target. We also upgraded to a whisker biscuit and a trigger release both of which helped tighten grouping. Quality seems fine as well as durabilty but it's only been a couple weeks.

Sammy your bow should be setup to be held in your weak hand and drawn with you dominant hand. For example I shoot left handed. I draw the string with my left hand and hold the bow in my right hand. Figure out which of your hands is dominant (the one you eat and write with) and pick the bow up with the other hand. If it fits you are ok. Most bows have a thumb groove in the bow that will fit the correct hand. There are a few youth bows out there that will fit either hand. Have no idea about the Canada part.
The weight is tied to the draw length with moduals and 3 settings on the cam. It comes with the cam set in the moddle so it will not go to 45 without moving this to the + location and it requires a press. Shop moved it for me at no charge.
i have and like the easton flatline carbon arrows and the bass pro store tech measured my draw and custom cut at 27 inches, that differs so you should go to a store if one is within reach, if not make a trip to vegas! the stores are the most amazing thing you may have ever seen
I'm a 14 year old boy and I was looking for a good bow. The draw weight and draw length seem pretty expandable so I think I'm good on that part, but what about the axle to axle weight? I don't know if it would be to small for me. If so, what do you think a good bow would be for me?

My son is 12 and he is using this bow to learn. It seems to work great for him since he grows several inches a day. LOL It is very easy to adjust draw length which is the really important part while learning to shoot a bow. The draw weight can be increased gradually once you get the basics down pat. My experience with him is that by the time he has grown enough to handle more weight than this bow he will need a longer draw length anyway. I highly recommend this bow for beginning youth.
