Rated 1 out of 5 by deerkiller100 worst bow ever
This was the worst bow ever. the bow starter making a squeeking sound after 20 shots. both the rest and sight needed to be replaced right off the bat. very low quilty bow not worth it for anyone. not even a beginner.

I use this bow to hunt with. The arrow rest and sight need to be upgraded. It also needs to have a peep sight put on and new arrows the ones on it will break if you so much as drop them. I put close to $70 into it to have it to hunt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by learningtoshootat9years 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AZBowman 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.

which hand do you use to write? As for Canada's hunting regulations, that's on you. I would think it would fulfill any and all requirements for every nation, but you may want to double check your local hunting laws and regs.
Here is a simple test to find your dominant eye. Stand a good distance (25 yards or more) from a telephone pole and put your thumb up like you are hitchhiking. Line your thumb up with the pole with both eyes open. Close your left eye without moving your thumb. Open your left eye and close your right eye. You will find the pole and thumb stayed lined up with one eye and the pole jumped out from behind your thumb with the other. The one that kept the pole behind it is your dominate eye. If it was your right shoot right handed; if it was the left shoot left handed. good luck.
You need it handed to what hand you pull the string back with, so if you hold the bow in your left-hand and pull the string back with your right, you need right-handed. You use your dominant eye to shoot a bow with, so if you normally shoot a gun left-handed, you might shoot a bow left-handed, but not always.
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.
No matter what weight it is set at, this bow is designed to make the changes for your particular draw weight easily and without a bow press. The cams are labelled, and the directions tell you which set to use for your particular draw weight. The tools required for the change are also provided. I was surprised at how easily this could be done.
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.
That depends on how long your draw is. If your bow is set at a 29" draw you will want to get 29" arrows. I've used expensive arrows and found they don't out perform the Redhead Blackout X5 carbon fiber arrows. You can get a half dozen of these for under $40
Your arrow will depend on your personal draw length. We have tried carbon, but the alum. seem to shoot more consistent, so that is what we use. The practice arrows for competitions do not seem consistent enough either.
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?

Barnett makes some good bows. At 14 years old, you could handle a full size bow. I would recommend the PSE Stinger. It's adjustable from 45-70#'s and the draw is adjustable from 25-30"
I think you mean axle to axle height. And it's not too small for you, unless you're over 6 1/2 feet tall. This bow will adjust out to 27inches in draw length. So unless you're very tall and long armed, I think this bow would work well for you.
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.
