Hunger Games/Traditional Archery Obsessed!!!!!! Review by Silver Linings

I bought this bow set last week, I bought it it before the three day week end. Which is a bank holiday. My bow should arrive tomorrow in the evening. I cannot wait to string it and start shooting!!!!! Finally my own bow, other than the longbow I'm making for myself.

Am I Taking Crazy Pills? Review by Xatike
Value
Quality
Price

Everyone on here seems to have raving reviews for this bow, and while I feel that it is mostly fine, I also must admit that it is far from perfect. I am a first time shooter and I find that this bow cannot handle distances beyond about 20-30 feet. After that it starts to fire in a wave pattern. However, the BIGGEST issue for me is not a beginner issue at all, but the fact that the arrow rest is made of the cheapest plastic held on by a barely passable sticker glue.

I've had to replace the rest three times and I've only used the bow that many times since purchase. I believe half of the issues from firing come from the rest alone, and I constantly feel like I have to hold it gingerly or it may break. This is not condusive to learning archery: a swordsman should not worry about their sword being too fragile, a mason should not have to be timid with his hammer, and I should not have to be calculating the best angle to NOT break my bow.

As many have said, the color is also misadvertised and it looks unfinished. It looks far from being a movie replica, and I did not purchase it for that reason, but instead to learn how to shoot. So far it disappointed in all fields. I'm looking for a new bow now. Perhaps I would recommend caution when purchasing this bow. Good luck.

Overall great bow set! Review by Nicole
Price
Value
Quality

I bought this set both because I wanted to use it as part of a costume, as well as learn how to shoot.

If you are looking into this bow strictly as a collectors item or as part of a costume, be aware that the color is slightly off. Like many of the other reviews have said, the bow is definitely much more grey than silver (as advertised). But I was aware of this before I bought it, so I wont dock it in the review.

As purely a sports item, it is a great bow that is very visually appealing and shoots amazingly! The only problem I have is that the arrow fletchings (feathers) get messed up very easily.

This is my first bow that i have bought i got it on Christmas eve, the shipping date was faster than i expected and was great price for what you were buying it for. it's super light but does pack a power hit to it. pulling the string back isn't a problem for me because i am well over six foot so it will never tire me out pulling it back all the time, however the only problem with it is that it's more of a grey color than that of silver but nothing a fine touch up can't handle overall i would recommend this bow to anyone that's starting out on learning how to do archery. Thank you Lancaster Archery :)

ok for beginners Review by riri
Value
Quality
Price

I've been shooting for about 5 months now and I'm addicted. I started with this bow and while, yes, it's easy to shoot I soon realized there were some serious limitations to it. At sixteen, I'm getting into doing JOAD and novelty and field shoots so once i realized that there was no way i could get passed a 40 yard shot successfully with this bow and I got stronger, it was time for something better. I quickly graduated from this bow but for beginners it will work well just beware that it is light which causes aiming and stability issues as well as distance issues so if you want to get better you will need to upgrade. As for me, I'm hoping to get the new Catching Fire Victor Take-Down Recurve! I can't wait and may the odds be ever in my favor.

On the description, it says it has a "silver metallic Finnish". But when I got it, it was a dull grey color. I was expecting a shiny silvery bow, but it looks like a toy. Otherwise, it's a great bow.

i got it last night. i had a hard time stringing it until i found an easy way to do it. i came with three more arrow rest, just in case it gets off. be sure you got arm guards because the notch is metal and it hurts haha! it is easy to shoot. it is just grey in color but it's fine, it doesn't matter to me as long as i'm comfortable with it. the best for my age which is 16. too bad if you're short because it kinda tall. straight to my forehead, i'm 5'8. so good luck! i recommend this or starters like me :)

Before this bow, I was working with a youth bow. I started archery because of The Hunger Games. I am beyond obsessed! When I saw this bow online I just died! I had to have it. When
I opened it up on Christmas Day I didn't even bother with the rest of my presents I quickly stringed the bow and grabbed my arrows. It was amazing! I couldn't ask for a better bow. Every time I take it out to shoot it feels brand new. I shoot everyday and there is barely a mark on it. Amazing Amazing Amazing. Must buy! Happy Shooting and May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor. (Yes I had to say it!!!!!)

I just received the bow today from the UPS truck. The box was split open and I feel like the directions or something was missing. It was very poorly packaged. However the bow is very fun, you don't even archery lessons to know how to be awesome at it. It's very addictive and makes me feel like someone (Katniss) in the Hunger Games!!! :)

New manufacturer - More Gray than Silver Review by Hunger Games Fan
Value
Quality
Price

I got this bow for Xmas and was extremely disappointed right out of the box. The bow does not have a "silver metallic finish" like the description says. It is a dull gray. Lancaster recently changed manufacturers of this bow and the new place does not make them as good as the first place did. The bow string is white (which is really weird) and the gray polymer came with many scratches. The arrows are very nice and well worth the money. I returned the bow and the shipping fee was not refunded and I had to pay for the return shipping as well. I was looking for a nice bow to display on the wall but this one does not give the appearance of the aluminum bow from the movies,

This bow is good for target practice, and shoots very nicely. I am thirteen, and thought this bow would be hard to pull back compared to my beginners bow. Actually, it wasn't that much harder. It is good for Hunger Games fans like me who want a bow that looks like the one used in the book and movie, but that you can shoot with, not one for display. The arrows that you can purchase with the bow are wonderful like the bow, and have feathers, which I like. If you enjoy archery and The Hunger Games, this is the perfect bow to get.

Very nice bow to use.Good pull back for beginners and a nice weight.THis bow does get scratched occasionally but will mostly on the nock. On my bow the string is sum-what falling apart but still hasn't come completely undone. Also the price of this bow is quite good considering the quality of the bow, because as you may have seen the prices of other bows on this website, no matter how good they may be, are a little steep for the average everyday american.
All in all a great bow that i would definately recommend,

Great bow for Experienced or beginners Review by Kelli

My daughter (15) had been saving for a new compound bow but couldn't resist this one when she saw it. Once the bow was in stock it arrived within just days. My daughter was at Yeoman Archer level according to the Junior Olympic Archery Development program with her compound bow, her first day using this bow at a shoot she advance 3 levels to Master Archer. Everyone at the shoot loved her bow and so does she. The only problem is that the arrows don't nock tightly enough and she has to hold them. All in all she feels it was a good value for her money.

It looks real nice out of the box, but the appearance deteriorates over time. I also experienced the arrow rests lasting about 500-1000 shots or about 3 weeks for me. However, what I love about this bow is it performs well, can be used right or left handed (a feature I feel is a must for beginner-type bows), and has a low draw weight which means control is easier.

I've used a lot of bows, braking one, as well as hundreds of arrows. If I could start archery all over again, this is the set I would get. WHERE WAS THIS PRODUCT 10 YEARS AGO? (Probably pre-R&D) Enough belly-aching. Seriously though, scout camps, day camps, and USA Archery youth programs (such as JOAD) should look into this. The arrows are not the cheapest I've seen, but they aren't the most expensive either, especially with the $1/arrow bundling discount (I think there should be a $1.5/arrow discount for buying 6 arrows, possibly as an additional option). I could very well see myself buying 2-3 more before the year is out....

Hi, I got this bow when it first came out. I am a freak when it comes to the hunger games. It is my favorite book series. When I got the bow I was pretty amazed on how well the quality was. For its price, it is very well made. I am a advanced shooter and I shoot with my freinds on the weekends from college. The arrows are very well made and they make the sound when you pull them back just like when jenifer pulled the arrows back. I definitly recommend this to anyone who likes archery.
