This is a great bow. Has a lot of power and the set up is really easy. For the price, you're really getting a lot of bang for your buck and I would recommend this to anyone thinking of trying archery but who doesn't want to spend a fortune. However, there is one major issue that really needs sorting by Geologic that would make this an outstanding bow rather than just a good one - the arrow rest. You have to stick it on to the main body of the bow with a piddly little foam pad, and after 20 or so shots the pad will lose adhesion and ping off. Worse, the arrow rest itself is made of super flimsy plastic and so breaks after a while. Yes, you get two in the box with the bow, but it's really quite poor and a vital piece of the bow. Why not just have the arrow rest molded out of the same piece as the bow? Yes, Decathlon sells spares, but it really isn't good enough. I eventually resorted to using a screw through the eyelet on the bow and relied on that. You can get a metal arrow rest, but it's still stuck on using the same type of rubbish adhesive foam pad. It's really a rather poor design decision, so bear this in mind. A great bow for the price, but it's a shocker that this one design flaw exists to stop it being truly brilliant.
Is the material used in the bow which is Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) stronger or the same strength and material as fibreglass or wood, or is it as strong as carbon?
Excellent equipment in the class easy to handle.
I recommend this for all beginners.
Had this now for 2 years, I have up graded to other recurve and compund bows. But can I say that I always go back to this bow as it's like your old toy when you was a kid. It's so easy, accurate and great fun to use. You will not find a bow of the much fun for this price. Just don't be fooled by the look or what the Archery clubricant lads say, it's your day at the racesame and you show them!!
Highly entertaining & good entry into archery.
The bow is amazing.
It's very easy to learn archery on it.
The only con is that it's a little bit too big.
good fast ease service too use
this was for my sons 22nd birthday
Use it a lot, easy to put together and fun to use. 4 stars because you really need to replace the rest it comes with. I bought the metal one and it is so good!
I have recently purchased this bow to rekindle my love with archery and my partner also purchased the same model in the larger size. I have been teaching him to use it and I must say it is the perfect bow for recreational users and those who are just beginning on their journey. The bow itself feels well designed and balanced and its extremely easy and nice to handle and use.
My son has been an archer for a number of years even reaching national status but had to stop for a couple of years lack of strength and health has made for a slow return . The bow is a perfect start for him although a slightly heavier draw than he could compete with at the moment it. will help him to strengthen up and train a perfect match ...... The service provided at store was certainly a good service although product knowledge was there and outdoor have helped most it left couple questions unanswered but very cheerful and polite very happy overall would certainly shop here again and ask for same assistant
