The easy-to-pull design of these compound bows makes them ideal for properly introducing beginners to the fundamentals of archery. Thanks to the cam and idler wheel system, students can hold a fully drawn bow with a fraction of the strength required to draw it, allowing for more time to aim before releasing a powerful shot.
Reliable performance makes them a staple in any archery program. The aluminum frame weighs under 2 lb for easy transport and comfortable use, while the added composite fiberglass lends strength and longevity in the face of consistent use by beginners.
Rainbow colors reduce apprehension when it comes to picking up a seemingly complex bow. Students can pick their favorite color and quickly immerse themselves in learning core skills. Vibrant colors are also great for organization across students and groups. No assembly or stringing required. Quickly adjust draw weight with a simple Allen wrench (included).
When selecting the right type of arrow, consider the shaft material, the arrow length, the fletching/vane material, and the draw weight.
Straighter and more consistent than wood; very stiff. Heavier weight makes them more durable but means they won't fly as quickly.
Lighter weight, precision-machined for straightness and true flight; most stiff. Most durable and preferred for competition.
Lightest weight, economical; less stiff. Excellent flight, and great for beginners or users with lower bow draw weights.
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
Plastic: Durable, long-lasting, and weather-resistant; quiet in flight.
Feather: Lightweight and forgiving; flies true.
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.
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 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.
