Product Description

The GenesisSystem, by elimination let-off on light draw weight bows (where let-off is unnecessary), eliminates specific draw length requirements. The result is a bow that fits virtually everybody (from 15" to 30"). A Genesisbow set at 20 lbs., for example, stores and releases an amount of energy comparable to a 35 lb. recurve bow! Plus, the Genesisbow has the "holding weight" (10 to 20 lbs.) necessary to "pull" the string from your fingers, making it easy to shoot. The new Genesisbow has just one cam. This means no tuning problems, much less recoil, more accurate shooting, and less noise.

My wife and I were looking for the right bow to get started with. Being inundated with the choices between compound, recurve and longbow, as well as all the options and add ons, we were afraid we would never know what to do without spending a lot of time at an archery range. Finally we discovered the Genesis, and as it states, this bow fit both of us perfectly.

This bow accomodates both my wife's 25-1/2" draw length and my larger 29-3/4" draw length. With a minor $200 investment we were both able to get started with a bow we owned that accomodated us both giving us the time needed to see if the sport was something we wanted to further invest in.

Out of the box this product is ready to use with no adjustment needed as with other bows. You also don't need to worry about what your draw length is. We can both use it and simply hand it off during practice. Lastly, any of our friends and children in our family can join in on the fun.

Thanks to the Genesis we will be investing in bows made specifically for us, but we will have the Genesis handy to introduce friends and family to the fun of archery. I would highly recommend purchasing a complete kit that includes arrows and an arm guard if at all possible. It ensures you'll have everything you need at once to get started.

This bow might tire the children, but I remember when I was 6 or 8 years old, with a skinny frame and had a 35# Bear Archery bow. I would get worn out keeping it at full draw, but I still had a lot of fun. Looking back, I would have loved to have this bow in its place.

I don't think I truly needed to pay extra for the kit, when I can just buy the bow itself, and pick up some youth arrows at a shop.

It's a great bow to get other people into the sport with. After they held and drew the bow, my little brother and Dad have been bugging me to get some arrows already so we can go shooting.

Comes pre-nocked with arrow rest. It even has standard mounts for sights and other accessories. It is ready for the archery range out of the box. The draw weight is strong enough to go 20 yards with aluminum arrows. However, I would not push it out beyond that distance, especially with heavier carbon fiber arrows.

The only drawback is that I wish it had a little more draw weight. Maybe 25 to 30 LBS so that it can go a little further. Overall it is an excellent bow for the beginner.

I bought the Genesis bow for my 11-year old daughter (she is 4'10", 70 lbs). It's her first time to use a compound bow. She had a hard time pulling the factory setting 20 lbs draw weight so I adjusted the bow down to about 11.6 lbs (6 turns counter clockwise). The bow is a bit heavy for her, but she has managed to shoot the bow inside our house almost 100 times now and can hit a target 8.5in x 11in from about 20ft.
As she gets better, she'll move back to about 30ft. Despite complaining of hurting arms, she found it to be a lot of fun. On the first day, she used it for more than 2 hours.

I also bought a couple of accessories the goes perfectly: Damascus DWC Glove small, Bear Archery Target Armguard 6", Trophy Ridge Sharp Shooter Sight, Allen Company Bow String Wax, Plano Protector Compact Bow Case, all from Amazon. I also bought 12 full length Easton Genesis II Arrows - the recommended NASP arrows for the Genesis Bow.

The bow sight attached without problems, but she doesn't use it. The bow case is perfect in size.

Right now, I am using free-hanging fabric (old bed sheets/curtains) to stop the arrows from hitting the walls/windows/door. The arrows can be stopped, but pierces the fabric. I think I need to use a lighter fabric to make the arrows bounce off rather than pierce.

So far she used the same one arrow almost 100 times - the only problem I can see is that the fletching is slightly warped/wavy - because of going through the fabric. It still flies straight and so is the arrow shaft.

I'll preface this review by saying that i know relatively nothing about archery. I'm just a dad looking for a way to engage my kids in something that we all can enjoy and hopefully make a few good memories along the way.

My 8 year old son just finished up a 6 week after school archery program modeled on the National Archery in the Schools Program. He has been asking for a bow and arrow set for a few years, so I asked his instructor what he recommended. Without hesitation he said the standard Genesis bow. After two days straight of shooting (with accompanying sun burn), I have to wholeheartedly agree.

First of all, this bow is not a toy. It's a solidly-made piece of equipment that I know we'll get a lot of life out of. Everyng is solid aluminum and just has a quality feel to it. The Genesis is priced higher than the kiddie toy sets, but don't let that scare you off. You get what you pay for.

The big feature of this bow is that it is perfectly useable by my son or by me without any adjustment. Other compound bows need to be set up for a specific sized shooter. My wife (5' 5") 8yr old son (4'), and I (6' 2") are all able to shoot this standard Genesis model perfectly. The bow is a little too big for my 5 year old son to handle easily. I'd recommend the Mini Genesis model for anyone under second grade.

The bow also adjusts easily for draw weight. There is a single allen bolt on each limb which adjusts the draw weight approximately 1.4# / turn. It was set to the heavy side out of the box, but it took about 10 seconds to get it down to a level that my 8 yr old son could easily manage.

The Genesis bow is the official bow of the National Archery in the Schools program and the only model allowed in their competitions.
