- Good first bow and Good bow to have around for beginners to shoot. Review by Bullseye_Brian
Quality Price Value
I purchased this bow for my 11 and 12 year old son and daughter (and me). Since we are new to archery I took someone's recommendation to get the lightest draw weight possible which was 15#. At 15# pretty much any kid will be able to shoot without struggling. This allows them to take their time and find the target. It also allows them to shoot pretty much all day without getting tired. I could probably have gone with 20# and been just fine. Maybe even gained some accuracy. But not knowing much about it I had to start somewhere so 15# is working fine.
The bow is made of a very durable composite material which should take lots of abuse and last for years. If the kids keep at it and want to upgrade in the near future, this will still be a great bow to have on hand for guests to shoot.
The PSE Club 66 seems to be pretty accurate for it's price level and draw weight. It didn't take long for the kids to start zeroing in the bullseye.
This is an olympic style recurve and setup for that style of archery. It isn't really a hunter or 'instinctive shooting' style bow. If you are interested in that style of archery you might want to go with something like the PSE Razorback Jr which has a wooden riser, flatter arrow shelf and shorter overall length better suited to the future hunter.
