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 am amending my review after the bow snapped and resulted in me having a 1 inch gash on my forehead
Customer Questions & Answers
Is it 60 inches strung or un-strung
Sure these Keshes Recurve Bows are higher draw back weight up to 55lb.
And the 60 inch night can give you 28 draw length.
This would work great for hunting.
what size arrows does it use and can you put a scope on it?
Thanks for your 2 questions. Firstly about what size arrow you would want to use for your keshes recurve bow, all depends on how much weight you draw. The best and simplest way to calculate it, is by adding 2 inches to your draw weight to make sure when you draw draw your arrow point will stay on the forward front edge??
I recently bought this for my 13 year old daughter with a 25 lb draw weight, but it was to lite. is it possible to upgrade to a 35 lb draw weight?
Answer: I’m not sure. If anything I would return my purchase and purchase a 35lb draw weight. You can always contact the seller as well.
My arms are too long. Can I use 34″ arrows with this bow?
Answer: It may start to stack a bit (the draw weight will increase very rapidly as you reach your anchor). That doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t use it, it’s just not ideal.
Why was 62 keshes takedown hunting recurve bow shipped without a drawstring?
Answer: Must have been a mistake. My bow had one.
