Bohning Bowfishing Kit
I ordered the Bohnig Bowfishing Kit and was able to get to use it in just 5 days after I ordered it. I didn't expect to get it that quick.Well I had a chance to go after Alligator Gar and was able to land one on my very first shot. "Got Lucky" anyway it worked awesome, had no problems what so ever. Would recommend to any one.

Waste of Time, Money, and Effort
I have never been so disappointed in a product that I have bought from a sporting goods store. Ever. Bass Pro should stop carrying this product immediately. Between every shot you either have to completely disassemble the stupid thing because the line has gotten tangled inside of the two piece plastic reel, or you have to re-tighten the nuts trying to prevent the line from getting tangled. My friends reel virtually exploded after taking like 4 shots and he had to spend over a half hour just trying to find all the pieces so he could attempt to put it back together. I spent twice as much time fixing this piece of junk as I did actually shooting. While this kit looks like a good option to give bowfishing a try while on a budget, it's not. You're more likely to just get burned out and give up bowfishing altogether.
Buy something else... Anything else... Try something with an winding mechanism. Don't make the same mistake I did.

this is one of things where the more You spend the more/better You get. I should have just got the AMS or Zebco reels. The thing came apart about a dozen times and was very annoying.

Not bad if you dont plan on doing serious bowfishing, the only problem is having to hand wind the line every time you shoot and the cheap quality. Any one who actually wants to do any real bowfishing should opt for an AMS Retriever, best bowfishing setup I've ever used.
