Adjustable Draw Weights from 10-20 lb
Adjustable Draw Lengths from 15-30”L

Aluminum and composite fiberglass construction
Ideal for Beginners
The easy-to-pull design of compound bows makes them ideal for properly introducing beginners to the fundamentals of archery. Use these bows right out of the box with no assembly or stringing required. Quickly and easily adjust the draw weight with a simple Allen wrench (included). When an arrow is nocked and the bowstring pulled back, students can achieve the same force and release energy as with a powerful recurve bow, but with a fraction of the strain on their arm.
Made with aluminum and composite fiberglass, resilience is a cornerstone in the construction of this NASP approved bow. The aluminum frame weighs under 2 lb for easy transport and comfortable use, while the added composite fiberglass lends rigidity and strength, as well as longevity in the face of consistent use by beginners.
With both left- and right-handed options available, it’s easy to outfit students with the correct bow, with further adjustments to draw weight setting the tone for a tailored learning experience.
Available in 6 Rainbow® colors (as well as Black), the vibrant coloring of these Genesis™ Compound Bows presents an inviting prospect for new archery students. Bright colors are non-intimidating and lessen apprehension when it comes to picking up a seemingly complex bow. Students can pick their favorite color and quickly immerse themselves in comfortably learning core skills.
Assign bow colors by skill level or activity for easy organization. Or, assign teams according to bow colors for friendly skills tests and challenges.
Rainbow® Genesis™ Compound Bow Options
Rainbow® Genesis™ Compound Bows are available Individually and in a Rainbow® Set of 6 (Right-handed only).
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
Feather: Lightweight and forgiving; flies true.
Plastic: Durable, long-lasting, and weather-resistant; quiet in flight.
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.
