Very simple yet effective design.

I had to put a screw through the arrow rest as the glue would not hold it.

This product is an example of a good design with a weak component. The weak point is a polymeric arrow rest which is held to the bow with double sticky tape. After having the arrow rest fly off with the arrow on every shot, I drilled and tapped the bow for two 4-40 machine screws and screwed the arrow rest to the bow. Great fix! The product now works as it should. Why designers come up with a well designed product then stick on an arrow rest with tape is beyond me. Seems like an afterthought. The product would be greatly improved if the arrow rest were fixed to the bow with screws or some type of snap fastener.

Very simple yet effective design. My 10 year old son was very happy when he opened this present at his birthday. He was overjoyed the first time he used it, now it has become a daily thing for him. Very easy to use, just make sure your child understands that this is still a deadly weapon, and all should go well. Came with a grip for left handed users, not important to us but great for those that need it. For the price I couldn't find anything better, extremely happy with the purchase!

My 10-year old son got interested in archery and didn't want a cheap toy. He searched on Amazon and read all the reviews of all options, eventually he settled on this one.I ordered it for him and he was thrilled. The length is just right for him -- big enough to make him (5 feet) feel powerful, but not too big to handle. I am impressed with the quality of this bow too.

Use this bow with 28" draw target arrows.

This is a fantastic bow with which to teach young students about archery. It is not a hunting bow or an adult bow, so this is not the choice for the zombie apocalypse.

The bow is decent, but very weak for an adult shooter. It is a great way to teach intuitive shooting to young learners. The arrow guide is a turd, don't bother with the double sided tape; use hot glue.

The string on this bow needs to be waxed as soon as you get it, otherwise it will fray. Wax the string and buy some youth target arrows and you'll be happy with your purchase.

i just bought this bow. i have the martin jaguar takedown bow, which i love by the way, so i thought it would be a good idea to get another martin. for my other martin, i didn't use the arrow rest that came with it, so i didn't have a problem with it. but for this one, there is no screw to install an arrow rest, just screws for sights. the adhesive is just double sided spongy tape. it never held on, and no, i did not have greasy fingers. i tried super glue, but it won't stick to the nylon rest. So i improvised and just used a zip tie, which worked great, but not pretty. Don't ask me to upload pics. i'm already too invested in this thing. One other thing, the fletchings of any arrow will not clear the arrow rest, so i had to cut off the fletchings that were in the way. After sighting it in, i can shoot a quarter size dot at 5 yards. The draw length extends after some stretching. I can barely anchor it.

My 9yo son got a taste for archery in boyscouts and I got the itch after watching Hunger Games. We decided to buy his bow first because I wanted to try shooting a bow left-handed due to my left eye-dominance before dropping a couple hundred on my own setup. This ambidextrous junior bow fit the bill perfectly.

Once we secured the arrow rest with hot glue, we were good to go. My son was shooting okay with it and having a blast, but my husband was consistantly hitting the target in a 5 inch grouping - so it is capable of consistent accuracy with proper form and technique. Practicing without some instruction from an experienced archer will yield poor results - but it's not the fault of this bow. I would not give this bow to a child to play with as a toy, because it assuredly is not.

Somebody mentioned missing screws - there are none except for the ones keeping the RH adapter on the riser...which you would use to swap out for the left hand side.

You will want to purchase an armguard to use with the bow - getting stung by the string will turn off a new archer in no time.

Do a simple test for eye dominance before you assume right handed means you should shoot as such. That did wonders for my accuracy.

My first time purchasing a bow and I was happy with it. Includes a stick on guide for the bow but there's no need for it can be used without it. Is well made, strong and great design.

The son of one of our friends had this bow and my son was able to try it out before buying and liked it. Today we received it and were shooting targets in 30 minutes. My son is able to pull back and hold while aiming. We have been shooting over the last three weeks, but today was his best day. I highly recommend this boy for young boys to learn good form before pushing the strength limits.
