For more than 80 years, Bear Archery has been America’s No. 1 brand in youth and institutional archery. The Scout Youth Bow Set comes ready to shoot with two Safetyglass arrows and a sight pin. The set also includes finger rollers, armguard, and arrow quiver. The recommended age range for...
I bought this to introduce the grand kids (5 & 7) to archery. I used the big box Amazon shipped it in for a target at a distance of about 8 feet. I was impressed that the draw weight was a good compromise of effort and power, and the length was good for both kids. They could both operate the bow, but did not have the patience to improve their skills. The adults thought the bow was great, but the grand kids were just not that into it - the iPad generation. I was also impressed with the arrow vanes - tough enough to go completely through the cardboard box multiple times with only moderate wear. The arrow 'points' are rounded for safety, but this combo does pack a punch - definitely NOT a toy.
Bought this for a Christmas gift, packaging and item description clearly state for right or left handed archers...however, there was no specific left handed arrow rest included in package. On Christmas day we had an excited kid, ready to use the new bow, and they could not as the single rest provided broke immediately upon use (with tears involved as our kiddo thought they has done something wrong to ruin their new gift *just what every parent wants on Christmas*) as it is not for left handed archers. Called the company and they told us,"Oh, yeah the rest provided is not for left handed shooters and would break if used as such. We will get a left handed rest headed your way." While I appreciate that they are getting us the correct part (though it has not shown up yet), I am so confused and disappointed as to why there was not one included in the packaging??? The rest is a sticker that you have to put on yourself, depending on which hand you shoot with. It probably costs penny's to make and include, so WHY not have it in there?? And instructions lead you to believe that included rests is an ambidextrous rest, though hubby questioned how that would be possible upon sticking it on...We have been off all week for the the holidays and anticipated being able to be outside helping our child learn to shoot and instead our kiddo has not been able to use what was their main "exciting" gift (with target, quiver, extra arrows, and case) and asks everyday if we can go out and practice shooting...big bummer! Hope this review helps parents of other left handed kiddos call ahead to get the correct part sent, so they can avoid the same disappointnent:(
This is a decent, inexpensive bow set for young children who shoot right-handed, which would normally rate a 4 star for me. However, I was ordering for a left-handed shooter. Despite the fact that the product states it is for both right- and left-handed archers, this is not appropriate for a left-handed shooter. The arrow rest, which attaches with the equivalent of 3M tape, is directional, meaning it will only work for one side - the side appropriate for a right-handed shooter. The way the bow is strung is really only appropriate for a right-handed shooter. I know some reviewers said they were able to use it left-handed, but this is not optimal. the friction is going to affect both the shooter's ability (something to think about, even for a six year old just getting the basics) and eventually the integrity of the string. We were highly disappointed and ended up sending this back. My six year old had spent her own money to buy a bow that states it would work for her. Instead, she opened up a box of disappointment.
