This bow was very easy to assemble and is a blast to shoot.
First time Archer
Setup was easy once I realized the instructions were completely useless which led me to youtube videos.

Overall, I would buy this bow again in the blink of an eye.

Great bow. Easy to assemble, easy to fire. However, there were a few issues.

- Arrow rest.
The arrow rest is plastic, and not well made. The plastic wears down after about an hour's worth of shooting. Note: the bow universally accepts arrow rests, and there are plenty available, from Amazon to Academy.

- Instructions.
The instructions on the construction of the bow were so-so. The instructions consist solely of a picture of where the parts fit together, with no accompanying text.

- Stringing the bow.
If I didn't have a friend that knew how to string a bow to show me how it's done, I would have to go to the internet to find out. The bowstringer and the instructions that came with it are VERY ambiguous and AGAIN there is no accompanying text, only pictures. Martin is assuming the customer has a base knowledge of how to operate a bowstringer.

So, none of these issues are detrimental to the user experience, so the bow gets 4 Stars.

Im going to keep this short.

Pros:
I love the bow, it shoots better then any other bow I have owned.
It looks cool.
I would buy again.

Cons:
The screws it came with were to big. I had to machine the shaft so the OEM screws could fit.
The string is horrible. I replaced it after shooting 3-4 times.
The stringer is also really bad.

Overall I really like how it shoots. I would but again.

I bought this and had only small trouble getting the limbs on. There was some wobble until until it was strung. It's powerful at 50lbs draw. Seems sturdy enough and easy to transport than a compound bow since it comes apart. Not too bad for the price.

I have been shooting bows for a long time and my old 1 got to small. I just bought this bow on bow viper.com for $119 its a 45 pound draw. I like it better than my brothers Fred Bear bow. Its shoots good with Easton 2117 arrows. you need heavy arrows for this bow... I would highly recommend this bow for beginners and archers at higher levels of skill.

the instructions included were terrible. e-mails for help went unanswered.
the bow stringer included was useless, and I finally found help from a youtube produced in Australia.
I would not purchase anything from them again.

As of so far, this bow has exceeded my expectations! I have not had a chance to shoot it myself, but my 17 year old son uses one of these bows in his competition tournaments and swears by this bow! This prompted me to get one. Overall construction and material seem to be of high quality. One thing that sticks out to me is the arrow rest is flimsy plastic with metal nuts and does not seem thoroughly thought through when adding this to the bow. I read others with the same concerns and they replaced theirs with an aftermarket rest. I will follow suit. It does have a nut for a counterbalance as well as appears to have a place for a sight too. Stringing the bow with the supplied stringing tool makes it a hell of a lot easier that what I made it out to be! ( I had the assembled bow between my legs and and trying to bend it down to loop the string and got it within half an inch of being able to get it around the tip! Very disappointed in myself for not using the tool! My wife was laughing at me)
I had to look to find a place that described how long of an arrow to use. When I did find it, the site told me, with my arms outstretched, to measure the distance between my middle finger tip to middle finger tip, then divide that measurement by 2.5, then add 2 to 3 inches so that the arrow head does not come into contact with the bow frame. Mine looked like this: 72.5"/2.5=29" , then 29" + 3 = 32" in arrow length from the pit of the knock to the tip of the arrow, NOT including the arrow head! (I added this because it took me a while to find this information)
An additional note: Something that would make this a better deal is if there was some sort of a carrying case or carrying bag to have this in that could either be used by itself or attached to someones hunting/survival bag using Molle webbing. Just a thought I had.
When I have a chance to shoot my bow, I will update this review accordingly.

The packaging was adequate, the contents were as described, and I've enjoyed using this bow every day since. I recommend this bow for anyone who is serious, but just starting out or is intermediate. It's not too heavy and the weight was perfect for me. I'm 5'4" and about 125 lbs female.

The bow itself is really nice. Assembly instructions are a bit lacking, but it is relatively easy to figure it out. I am an amateur archer, and was not expecting a 50# bow to be so difficult to draw. If you have not actually drawn a 50# bow, and don't consider yourself to be relatively buff, I would go with the 40# option. I really love the riser. The grip is so so, but the riser itself has a very nice feel, and very nice looking Autumn Camo. It also has pre-drilled holes for a plethora of attachments.

Sadly, the accessories that come with the bow are absolutely terrible. I knew this when I bought the bow, and purchased a knockoff whisker biscuit along with it. The low price of the bow more than makes up for the awful arrow rest and bow stringer (the bow stringer works, but there are far better options).

4/5 because of the bad accessories, I would still recommend this bow for anyone looking to get into archery.
