    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 is for anyone in the nasp(national archery in schools program) or any one learning to shoot. my son loves it and at the price you cant go wrong. bought this and the Plano Protector Compact Bow Case (Black)Item model number: 1110-00, both products came in quickly which surprised me considering i live out in hawaii. My son is fairly new to archery and has only been out to the range 3 times and placed 4th in competition out of 120, which shows how easy it is even for beginners to the sport. love the variety of colors but wish the prices were the same, but overall a good buy, especially since bows out here in hawaii go for 200+

    Excellent bow, great price, fast shipping. The bow shoots well (very strong from about 35 yards, my max target distance in the backyard). Easily adjusts for my 7 year old son, I highly recommend this bow.
