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.

My 13 yr old daughter wanted a bow for her birthday and after extensive research, this bow kept popping to the top of the list. Admittedly, I have no prior bow experience so I can't tell you what a good bow is. I do know quality and this bow has it. It is definitely no toy. We made a trip to the local Bass Pro Shop and recieved extraordinary customer service. Clark (your the man!) completely set up the bow for my daughter and she shot it for the first time in the BPS range. She loves it and my son now wants a bow too. So far, so good. The bow works as advertised. I'm amazed at the adjustabilty. It was definitely the better choice over a recurve. IMO. My only complaint would be that the arrows seem a bit flimsy.

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.
