Top Positive Review


Being a bowhunter, I can give a good review here. We’ll start with the bad- There is no peep, and the arrow rest is not as pictured, but rather a plain two prong plastic rest, not the three point rest pictured. The grip is bare painted aluminum, and I bought some wrapping for tennis racket handle wrap because this is for my daughter and for a kid, this could be dangerous, it could easily slip from the hand of a kid and cause injury. The arrows are permanently tipped with the old wooden target arrow type tips, on carbon arrows, which I find really strange, would rather have had three regular arrows with field tips. Other than these issues, I will update if I find more.
The good- It’s a legitimate bow, and the other review is not correct… the pictured cams are what comes with the bow. The string is good, the overall fit and function seems good enough, the fiber optic sights seem good.
For $90 plus an additional $30 or so for kisser button, peep, proper whisker biscuit… I think it’s the best for the price compared to any other bow out there I could find.

Top Critical Review


A,B and C inserts are provided to adjust draw weight and length but using C yields only 22?? draw length to the berber hole, NOT the 25?? claimed in the listing and package insert. Design is implausible that draw length would adjust as claimed. Axel to axel is just 27.5??. Pull is rough without a good let-off. The rest provided (1st photo) looks like it won??t grab a 6 o??clock index vane but the rest functions poorly and seems to kick the fletching when firing. Definitely doesn??t work with helical fletching. I replaced the rest with an SAS drop away and then the bow was very accurate (tight group including ??Robin Hood?? @60 ft, in 3rd photo).

A huge problem with the cheap, fiberglass arrows provided is the tips are GLUED on, not inserted, so the have a ??lip?? (2nd photo) that catches and makes it VERY difficult to remove from a target. Forget them and get 26?? or 28?? carbon arrows; spine of 600 is fine.

Customer Questions & Answers


What arrow rest works with this bow?
Answer: I have been bowhunting for 40 years and just got my 11 yr old started with this bow. I believe the best, safest and easiest to use rest is the Whisker Biscuit.

can you add a bow fishing reel to it?
Answer: Yes it will. Bought this exact bow and paired it with the Cajun pro winch. LOVE it. Small and compact when you have multiple shooters, fine tunable and have been sticking gar with it every weekend

Is it threaded for a stabilizer? I cant tell by the picture, thanks
Answer: Yes it is

What arrow rest and sights come with this bow? I’ve seen several comments about it not coming with what is shown in the picture.
Answer: The sites are good and the arrow rest is adequate, although I would put a whisker biscuit on it for safety and accuracy. Good bow

Can i hunt deer with it?
Answer: No. This bow is a child/young adult bow that maxes out at 29lbs of draw weight. You??d want at least 40lbs to effectively hunt white tail and 50+ for elk and larger game.
