Rated 5 out of 5 by Mark123678 Just buy it. If you are like me, then you have been sorting through bows that are a solid purchase. I bought this bow after looking at a few others in a similar price range and I have been really surprised at the quality of the parts that make up the foundation of the bow. The additions, such as sight and arrow holster are great for beginners like myself and will last a while. The bow is made well and hold up to a lot. My friend dry fired the bow at half draw and there are no cracks or breaks. A word of advice... Have a rule for your bow... Never draw it back unless loaded with an arrow... And never draw an arrow unless pointing at a target. :) great bow, so just buy it and expect a good amount of use out of it! April 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by easttxslayer awesome bow I have hunted with a gun my whole life until my uncle, a long time bow hunter, talked me into archery. I purchased this bow and spent about 30 with an employee getting it set up and he had me shooting tight groups quickly. Ive since killed my first archery deer with it, a large doe at 20 yards, dropped her where she stood. This is an amazing bow for anyone getting into bow hunting. April 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by deerpro99 Who knew So just got this bow a couple days ago and i love it its better than most other bows. I compared this bow with the pse stinger 3g and turns out that this bow blew the pse out of the woods! Already shootin less than half in. groups on my target! If your lookin for a bow that fits a tight budget but can get the job done well here it is! March 3, 2013

A:The size and length of your arrows will depend on your draw weight and length. Im 6'2 and have a #62 weight and 28" draw length. If you go to your local archery shop they can set you up properly.
Details:what weight and size arrow should be shot out of this bow?
A:With my bow at 62# draw weight I use Carbon Express Maxima 350 weight arrows. It all depends on your weight and what youre shooting at!
Details:Is it possible to swap out or upgrade the rest and sight?
A:Absolutely. Any sight or rest with the same screw pattern can be fitted on your bow.
A:A whisker bisket and browning sight come with this bow. Not sure on the specific model numbers. It is possible to swap out any of the accessories on this bow, but if you're looking to upgrade that stuff it would likely be cheaper to just buy the base model bow rather than the RTH package.
Personally I don't have any issues with the accessories on the RTH package, they DON'T seem to be low quality stuff just slapped onto the bow to form a package.
A:The Encounter ready to hunt package comes with a 3 pin Punisher sight (AS103) and an Original Quick Shot whisker biscuit (AWBBRM). I am sorry but we are unable to change out the products on this package. You would just have to purchase the items separately. Thanks
Details:What draw length and draw weight is good for me? I'm 6'3" 300lbs ... this is my first bow since i was a child and know nothing about what's right for me. there are no bass pro shops in nj to ask any questions. Also what lenght arrow and weight broadhead arrow head (also buying feildpoints) should i buy? Not planing on hunting more for quiet weapon for survival scenerio / target practice.
A:60-70 pound pull and about 31-32 draw length. Use around a 150 grain broad and field tip head and arrow lengths vary sometimes on brands.
A:There is no way to answer this, your draw length can change dramatically depending on what type of bow you're shooting. You really need to find a local archery shop. Many will setup bows for a fee even if they weren't purchased there.
A:if you go to a pawn shop and they have bows ask them to measure you and then figure out what draw length you will need and depends on how strong you are and how comfortable you will want it to be when you draw back and id suggest a bow that has 60-70 pound draw and start at 60 and work your way till your comfortable and what ever draw length your bow is go one inch longer then that
A:Probably about 30". Many compound bow owners set their bows for too much draw length. To measure your draw length, determine the length of your arm-span in inches. Stand with your arms out and palms facing forward. Stand naturally. Have someone else help you, and measure from the tip of one middle finger to the other. Then simply divide that number by 2.5. The quotient is your proper draw length (in inches) for your body size.
Details:since i am new to archery and this will be my first bow, i understand there are several aspects that take some fine tuning for each individual archer. what can i expect when i come into the store as far as support when i buy a new bow? will the staff assist in the tuning of things like peep sight, draw length, and draw weight adjustments?
A:When you go in to purchase your bow, you will be allowed to test fire it before making your final decision. Once you've chosen the employee should measure and set your draw length and weight and show you proper technique. Once you leave you should be shooting like a pro!
A:When I purchased this bow from my local BPS I was taken to the in store range where I was measured and the bow was *half setup* (draw weight, length, basic sight adjustment) just so I could try it. I went home to think it over, and when I returned the next day and said I wanted to buy it the archery desk brought me into the range and spent about 20 minutes dialing in all the sight pins, peep sight, etc. I left there with a bow that was shooting 2" groupings at 40 yards.
I was used to long bows and had really never fired a compound bow before. The archery staff at my BPS was amazingly helpful.
