I use this bow for AmtGard which is a foam fighting sport. The point being is I use this bow in a more rugged scenario than it is probably designed for and It has performed beautifully. Gopher was very helpful about answering any questions i had about the status of my order as i was a new customer and hadnt heard of them before. This Bow was otherwise hard to find and i tell other Amtgarders in the sport about this site when they are looking for something in this poundage range.

Sport Tips

Which bow and arrow are right for me?

When selecting the right type of arrow, consider the shaft material, the arrow length, the fletching/vane material, and the draw weight.

Fiberglass Shaft
Fiberglass Shaft

Straighter and more consistent than wood; very stiff. Heavier weight makes them more durable but means they won't fly as quickly.

Aluminum Shaft
Aluminum Shaft

Lighter weight, precision-machined for straightness and true flight; most stiff. Most durable and preferred for competition.

Wood Shaft
Wood Shaft

Lightest weight, economical; less stiff. Excellent flight, and great for beginners or users with lower bow draw weights.

Arrow Length
Arrow Length

The arrow length should be about 1" longer than the distance from the user's chest to fingertips (arms extended and palms together). 

Middle School: 24"-26"L

High School: 28"-30"L

Fletching/Vane Material
Fletching/Vane Material

Feather: Lightweight and forgiving; flies true.

Plastic: Durable, long-lasting, and weather-resistant; quiet in flight.

Draw Weight

Match arrows with bow draw weight. A comfortable draw weight should require 75% or less of the user's maximum strength. Generally users 100-130 lb use a 25-35 lb draw weight, while users 130-160 lb use a 30-40 lb draw weight.


Bow Types

Recurve - Simple design with few components for institutional durability. Relies more on user technique for accuracy.

Compound - Easier to draw, aim, and shoot due to its energy-storing pulley system. Allows arrow to go greater distances.

AMO Length

AMO length is an industry standard of bow/string length, measured from tip to tip along the bow's curved edge. Under tension, bowstrings run 3"-4" shorter than AMO length. Order by AMO length.
