This bow is great quality and feels solid right out of the box.I ordered the Lime Green, but it’s more of a Grass Green, which I like even better.A little about your fingers: Protect them with Gloves or install Finger Guards to your bow strings (Finger Savers)If you won't be using a glove to release an arrow, I highly suggest having Finger Savers installed to protect your *guess what?* fingers!Find a local archery/hunting store and they should be able to properly set you up with the Finger Savers while setting up the proper arrow nocking point, and give you a few tips on how to adjust the draw weight, how to shoot an arrow, how/when to wax your strings, etc. If you’ve never shot, maybe take a quick lesson if they offer it.I had a guy set me up at the archery store and it cost me $20 for the wax tube ($7) and labor ($13). DO NOT try putting on the finger savers by yourself, unless you have a special bow machine to release the bow strings. I'm glad I just drove to my local archery store, because I would have ruined the bow strings if I tried to attempt it (Not all YouTube videos are realistic).Okay. I'm a 5'6" woman with pretty strong arms, BUT I have fibromyalgia and didn't want to get a bow with more than a 20# draw weight, because I get sore very fast. I had to reduce it to about 18.5# which has nice tension for me.We had a great time shooting with the Genesis bow. I just have to buy the correct arrows. Read on about that...ARROW UPDATE!!! I originally bought a dozen Reegox 30”carbon arrows for target practice only. THESE ARE NOT THE CORRECT ARROWS FOR THIS BOW!!! I’m dumb. Don’t judge me. Get feather ones & make sure you buy arrows that work with your bow’s draw weight. These are too heavy. They’ll be okay for closer targets. We used them but will be buying feather arrows.I also bought an arm guard that velcros on.I will also be sharing this with my 16-year old son. He’s 5’11” and it looks very comfortable when he draws the string back. If he upgrades to increase draw length & weight, he might go with the Genesis Pro, which goes up to a 25# draw weight (FYI: arrow rest and nock are not included). It may not seem like a lot of weight, but after shooting a dozen arrows over and over, you will be fatigued.Here’s the Genesis Pro product description, if you want to compare the two.Genesis Pro description: While still a zero let-off design, the Genesis Pro lets archers customize their draw length and adjusts up to 25 lbs of draw weight. Our draw stop cam technology provides a “solid wall” or stop, ensuring you achieve the correct draw length every time. This helps archers using mechanical release aids to maintain proper form and produce a consistent follow-through for maximum accuracy. Details: Zero let-off design; Draw weight comes standard at 25 lbs and can be safely lowered to 15 lbs - all you need is a 3/16" hex wrench (provided) to adjust draw weight; Covers all standard draw lengths ranging between 15"-30"; Machined 6061-T6 aluminum riser, aluminum cam and idler wheel; Composite limbs; Cable guard; Molded competition grip; Riser is drilled and tapped for standard accessories; 0% let-off; 35 1/2" axle-to-axle; 7 5/8" brace height. Note: Arrow rest and arrow nock and not included.
Bottom line first - I highly recommend this one bow that the whole family, big and small, will be able to shoot and have fun with right out of the box. PERFECT for one size fits all bow for target shooting.My kids archery teacher recommended this as a family bow and he was right. It's truly a one bow fits all. My daughter, son and I can all use it. I'm surprised I enjoy using it set at the draw weight for my son. To compare, his Lil' Banshee Youth Compound bow feels like a tiny toy in my hands. What makes this bow so awesome as a family bow is not only is the draw weight adjustable. the draw length is however far you pull back. Doesn't matter if you're small with short arms or tall with long arms, it just fits. If your kids are stronger (over age 10) it's worth spending the extra $10-15 on amazon for the Genesis Pro model with the option for higher draw weight and adding an easily removable and adjustable stop (for draw length). This bow is the standard/official school archery bow and I can see why. Any one, any size can use it and we find it VERY accurate. Groupings are consistent for all three of us. It comes ready to shoot with a built in arrow rest and a nock already installed. It also comes with an allen wrench to adjust the draw weight. It comes set at the max, 20lbs. We had to open it up a few turns to lower the draw weight for the kids. It feels rugged and indestructible.I love that I was able to buy one bow for both kids and didn't have to buy two bows set up for their very different sizes. That makes this bow a tremendous value. They'll be able to use it in competitions too, which is the reason I bought it in the first place.This bow cost me $60 less than a beautiful 35 lb, 60" recurve I bought for myself prior to finding out that Genesis bows exist. I'm the only one big enough to shoot the recurve which is a shame but we can all take turns at the Genesis without even having to adjust it between shooters. I realize that a 20 lb compound is not comparable to a 35 lb recurve but I get much tighter groupings with the Genesis bow and it's easier and more fun to shoot. Practicing with the Genesis is making me a better shot on the recurve so I use both. It's also nice to not have to string the Genesis every time and unstring it when done.There's a reason after school programs use this bow. The quality and value is obvious. For you and this kids, this is the bow to get. If it's just for the kids and they are really small, the Genesis mini is probably a better option. If it's just for a adults, spend the extra $10-15 on Amazon and get the Genesis pro.
This bow does not have a let-off! The whole point of the cam/pulley system in a compound bow is so that all the pull weight lets off at full draw. Meaning a 10 pound pull weight (normal for this bow) drops to only 2-3 pounds at the end of the pull. This lets the archer hold steady, aim, and release accurately and consistently. Learning how to shoot on this bow will force a shooter to learn recurve bow mechanics - which isn’t a bad thing, but is for the wrong kind of bow.

This bow was a gift for my grandson and was very highly recommended by the instructor at his archery class. This type of bow is used to teach archery in most archery courses. I'll admit I know next to nothing about archery. My grandson is right handed, so I just assumed he'd use a right handed bow. My grandson's first archery lesson led us to discover I was wrong - the instructor determined that while my grandson was right handed, he is left eye dominant and that is the determining factor in archery. Would have been nice to know this before I bought him a right handed bow. Well, I corrected that mistake by getting him this one - a left handed bow. I would caution anyone interested in getting started in archery to talk to a knowledgeable instructor FIRST to help find the right bow for you - could have saved myself about $125. This is the same type of bow my grandson is using at his archery class and this kit has everything you'd need. You get the bow, 5 arrows, an adjustable arm guard, a hip quiver and the back has 2 face targets you can use. After researching this purchase I found this Genisis Kit was lower than any I could find for the same item. Best price I found elsewhere was $229 - a savings of $27
I love archery and wanted to compete at the school level. So this being the nasp official bow I bought it so I could practice and compete. I also bought a case in Target. And total it cost me over $300 I got it And the arrows were bent. nocks were falling out and was just in all a horrible experience. I am a high-school student who cannot afford to purchase new arrows. It is $36 for 6 arrows this is crap. I thought I was going to get five good arrows to use when I bought this boat so that I could practice for the next school year. Instead I got three usable arrows and two arrows that were bent one of them missing the nock. The Bowen of itself is good but I would never recommend getting the kit it is absolutely awful.
Bought two of these sets( in camo for Christmas for a couple of grand kids that come of age this year. Our whole family shoots and I have bought for and taught all of my kids and all of their kids starting at around 8 or 9. All the others (7) I started with the youth PSE's and Samicks. Supposedly because you can upgrade the limbs as they grow. Really? Try to find just the limbs anywhere! The Genesis bows are beautifully made of quality material and come with everything you need to start except maybe a finger tab. Nice rests, good arrows with a quiver and arm guard. When the basics are coming along well there are holes to add sights and plungers if you like. Pretty sure the older kids are going to be Jealous. Finally the price is amazing for such a nice outfit. Cheaper actually than what the starter recurve bows with accessories set me back Merry Christmas!.

My wife and I both are avid bow-shooting enthusiasts. We shoot regularly in our back yard, and go to the local park where there is a range shooting up to 60 yards out. My 45 lb bow does pretty well, but the mounts for a sight aren't especially good and I often have to cant the bow via dead reckoning to achieve the distance. My wife also has a 35 lb bow which does not allow for sights - and so she too runs into this issue. Together, we spent well over $500 on our bows, and those didn't include sights.We took this bow out today to shoot to test it out. At the 20, 30, and then the 40 yard range. Here are some of our impressions:- Make absolutely sure you take the bow in to get nocked at a pro shop. You will thank me later. It not only makes shooting the bow easier, but it also make it safer to fire.- The brace height is approximately 7.4 inches as it's base install ( you can increase this by adding more twists to the top of your string ).- This bow LOVES carbon fiber arrows with feather fletches. Don't buy cheap arrows with plastic "toy" fletches - you won't get accuracy ).- With a standard .35 grain field tips - the bow has pretty decent stopping power. This is enough to deploy on most situations and get your arrows stuck into wood requiring some force to pull them out. If you want to shoot at a longer range, lighter arrows will achieve this, but we didn't test them out )- The arrow rest is ok, but without the string properly nocked, we lost several feathers. This is due to either the arrow making too much contact with the bow during flight ( you can use baby powder to check for contact ), or our arrows need to be re-fletched. I'm sure it's a combination of both heavily leaning on the latter, so I won't fault the bow. My wife might opt to remove this entirely and use a felt or horse hair arrow rest - which may smoothen the flight. Since we shoot with feather fletched arrows - this is ideal.- The draw is smooth and we were able to achieve good accuracy with the bow. Most people who experience bad accuracy are shooting incorrectly ( don't grip the handle! Cradle it so that it moves freely.- Breaking down the bow is easy, and we are super glad this came with a stringer.- The sights are easy to manage and for all practical purposes are great. We will in all likelihood mark the locations of the sights so that we can adjust for distance on the fly. I was able to achieve a 14 inch pattern at 20 yards without the use of proper nocks. This wasn't necessarily easy, but it speaks a lot about how "complete" the bow is. My wife enjoys it and was able to achieve a slightly larger pattern, but like me - really wants to nock the string asap to ensure a proper alignment of the arrow on each flight. We love the bow, and it's a great novice-intermediate bow for someone who is moving up from a youth bow and into something with a little more punch without getting punched in the wallet.
I loved archery, as a kid. Launching an arrow straight up, realizing what a bad idea that was; running in abject terror. Good times. Now that I'm older and sometimes wiser, I wanted to take the hobby back up, and share it with my kids. I purchased this bow, and it is incredible fun.The riser is really beautiful wood, and the finish is flawless. The thumbscrews for the limbs make setup and takedown easy, yet the hold the limbs in a rock solid manner. The bow stringer included makes setup easy and uneventful... Well, after I broke down and actually read the instructions. The bow sight is super easy to use (Just move the sight towards where the arrows group until they all go in the middle), and removes with a thumbscrew for ease of storage. The arrow rest is a cheap stick on plastic bit (The riser has a standard fitting for fancy rests), but I'll be darned if it doesn't work just fine. The only things you need are arrows, and whatever nocks you want for the string, to get going.The bow is a joy to use - very light, but rock solid. I got the 35lb draw weight for targets, and so the kiddos could use it. The draw is smooth and effortless. The draw seems to be ~29 inches, but if your offspring's arms aren't that long, it still works excellent. Really drills the arrows in, and for thirty yard practice, it pretty much shoots flat. I was surprised how easy it was to get great groupings. It's also pretty quiet without string silencers - No buzzing or other odd sounds that certain bows make.Broken down, the bow is super easy to transport. I also like that all the fittings for accessories like the sight, arrow rest, stabilizer are all standard. If you care to, you could really trick the bow out, but I've found all the included accessories work perfectly well.All in all, it is a solid bow that punches well above its weight in value and looks great.Update: Bow continues to impress - I keep getting better and better with it (Clearly, the bow is more accurate than I am). Waxed the string, added to otter string silencers (also found out otters are apparently delightfully fluffy), and it is ridiculously silent now. I pick it up and use it in the yard way more than I thought. No wear on the string.
I am a newbie to archery but will compare the bow to one that we recently purchased for our daughter that we bought from an archery store in Oregon. The Keshes bow is as nice or nicer than the store-bought bow costing much more and included a stringer, arrow rest, and sight that we had to pay extra for at the store. I was able to look up online how to set up the nock and will be doing that before hitting the range. We will probably go to an indoor range to take a lesson or two before going out on our own and I will have my bow setup checked. As others have said, the limbs fit well onto the riser. The brackets that hold the limbs are made of plastic but I do not see/expect durability issues. The finish on the riser is actually nicer than the finish on the store-bought bow. Again it's nice to have all the accessories needed to get started. If I were doing this again, I would buy feathered arrows based on some of the other reviews. It would be nice if Keshes sold extra limbs separately so I could work my way up to heavier draw weights.

After replacing our Mathews genesis bows for the 2nd time in 3 years I was determined to find something better and cheaper. Our camp leader purchased 4 different models off Amazon and this was the winner. We had a few questions about the product and the folks at southwest archery answered all our questions within a few hours of emailing them. They even gave us some tips to help improve the youth camp experience. We had a great experience using 10 of these bows this summer and not one of them broke on us.
My son received this bow for his 9th birthday from grandma, it was the perfect gift and my husband was able to adjust it in under a minute to let a few of the kids shoot it. I was surprised at how accurate they all were with it. Great for kids and super easy to adjust.

This bow is very well crafted. Unlike what the description says it's actually a deflex reflex bow kind of a modern native American / mongolian hybrid bow. Designed to be shot off the hand right or left handed, western or eastern styles will work. The bow it self feels light but very sturdy in the hand, draws very smooth with little to no stacking felt. I bought the 45lbs @28" but the bow can be safely drawn to 30" I wouldn't draw it past that. I've shot both wood and carbon arrows from the bow both shot fine. The wood arrows were spined at 45/50 and 28.75" long with 125gr Bodkin tips. The carbon arrows are 400gr 28.75"long with 125gr bodkin tips as well. Both sets are 3 fletched with 5" left wing shield cut feathers. Buy this bow you'll love it, and the fur string silencers look beautiful. The only down side is that there's no paper work with the bow or markings on the bow it self so if your new to archery setup could be tricky. I weighed mine with a bow scale to make sure draw weight was right.
A point of technical clarity: this is not a recurve bow. it's a reflex bow. The string does not contact the limps other than in the notch.To date, this is the most fun to shoot bow we've owned. At lower draw weights (ours is 30 lbs) it seems solidly built. As with anything, the higher the stresses the quicker you're going to find out just how well it's made. But we haven't seen anything that might deter us from buying another with a heavier draw. We probably would have already, if not for our compulsion to try new styles, rather than sticking with what we know we like. So far, this has been our favorite though.This is a very light-weight and well balanced bow. While, as a 49 year old male, I've absolutely loved shooting it, it's been especially great for my young nieces and nephews, just learning to shoot off the hand. Even my 10 year old niece has taken to it, over shooting off the shelf with a snakebow. Some (with large hands) have commented that they felt compelled to wrap the grip to make it a bit thicker. As you don't really grip a bow tightly, I haven't felt the same need. I actually feel like I have better control with this bow than I do our fiberglass bows that do have a wrapped grip. To further qualify that, I wear a size 9 glove, which is a medium from some manufacturers, a large with others. But, I would say I have medium size hands, rather than large.This bow has been especially great for helping me improve my thumb release. Probably because the grip is narrower than the limbs, but switching between 3-finger release and thumb, there's less of an adjustment. Where with fiberglass bows, I sometimes feel like I'm holding the bow a little sideways when shooting thumb. Thirty pounds is also a good weight to start shooting thumb release - not too light and not so heavy that your thumb is sore after only a few shots. I don't use a ring. Just a couple layers of cheap athletic tape wrapped around my thumb, when I'm going to be shooting for a while, works great at this weight bow.Our bow came with two sets of string silencers, one on the string, one in a package. We tried it with the one that was already on the string and it fell off within a few shots. We really haven't found the bow to be excessively loud, so I haven't bothered learning how to properly tie the little strips of fur to keep them from falling off.The main criticism we have about this bow is the thinness of the string it comes with. Like our bow collection, we don't typically buy the same exact arrows twice, no matter how much we like a particular brand. And of the half dozen different styles of arrow we have (unspecified wood, bamboo, aluminum, and several sets of carbon fiber) only one set of carbon fiber will knock on this strings rather thin serving. This is the first bow we've owned that we couldn't use all our different style of arrows with. We'll probably be getting a new string soon though, as the string that came with the bow is already fraying near the notch, due to the notch apparently needing a touch more sanding than how it came out of the box. The arrows we have that work well with the included string were TTAD red turkey feather carbon fiber arrows, also bought through amazon.On a more positive note about the string: the serving is perfectly centered. So you can fire it with either end up and it won't matter. This is more important considering there are no markings on the bow to indicate one end from the other, if you were to use a string with an off-centered serving. Even the poundage was stuck on the bow as a removable price sticker. Which we used a metallic Sharpie to label the weight, should we buy another at a higher weight later.Some have commented that this bow looks like a work of art. Ours didn't. In an apparent attempt to over-package the bow to deter damage in shipping, the manufacturer unnecessarily used a transparent blue garden-hose-like tubing on each end, which marred the finish, likely due to being subjected to too much heat at some point in transit or storage. Or maybe it was packaged too soon, before the finish had cured.We didn't buy the bow just to decorate a wall. We bought it to use. And a little light sanding with a scouring pad was all that was needed to remove the sticky residue left on the bow. Some light sanding with fine sandpaper would no doubt finish it further, if desired, but it would need to be repolished afterwards, and the pattern left from the tubing actually gives the bow a bit more character, IMHO. We contacted TopArchery to let them know what happened so they can improve their packaging. So hopefully they've done so. They said they would look into it, but they also said they were going to send us a small refund, which never came. Not that we requested any kind of compensation in the first place, mind you. As, like I said, cosmetic imperfections didn't matter to us.It's hard to comment on value, considering how frequently prices vary. We bought it at a hundred bucks and relative to other offerings, it seems a pretty decent value in that range. For the money, we'd definitely buy this bow again, warts and all.
I wanted an ambidextrous bow because I have some shoulder and elbow problems, and I am pleased with this fine bow.It looks great and shoots great . I have been shooting Denton ICS Bowhunter 500 arrows, because I have some, from my 30 lb bow. They do well, and also Easton Jazz xx75 1816 feather fletched arrows. If you like simple archery, I highly recommend this bow .
