The accessories that come with this bow are decidedly low-rent items. I recommend replacing both the included arrow rest and the string nock with better quality items. The only real downside to this bow is its aesthetics. Some might find the 100% molded composite construction a bit off putting. Honestly it does lend an air of cheapness to the bow, but I can assure you that it's totally solid.
If you're looking for a beginner bow in this price range, but want something that isn't fully molded, look to the Barnett Outdoors 1123 Buck Commander Sportflight Recurve Archery Set. It's also a 60" bow with a draw weight in the 20's but has a more upscale riser with fiberglass limbs attached.
The arrow rest is a cheapy $2.00 stick on model, but is reasonably durable and doesn't ruin feather fletchings. The string appears to be a Dacron endless loop and the serving is a too small diameter letting the arrow nocks attached to the string but easily slide down the string. The thin unpadded brass string nock supplied is useless.
Victory Ares/Venus 500 or 600 spine arrows with a 100 grain field point at full length (29") work well with a 28" draw. With a D-97 Flemish twist string and 330 grain arrows the bow chronographs at about 140 fps, finger released, with a 28" draw and 128 fps with the supplied string.
This bow is made by Arc-Rolan for PSE. They recommend an 18.5z cm to 19.5 cm (7 to 8 inch) brace height.
I highly recommend using feather fletched arrows with this bow, as vanes cause erratic shot placement. I also recommend getting a Flemish twist string to more easily tune the brace height and a set of good string nocks. A $20 string and the nocks make this bow perform as well as a bows 3 to 4 times the price.
Price, quality, sturdy enough for a beginner to get a lot of practice with. Draw weight is friendly for smaller users.
When it comes out of the box you most likely will be disappointed with the aesthetics. It has a cheap look with an integrated grip and no distinct changes to the overall body of the bow. Don't be fooled though, it works just fine.
The arrow rest is small at best compared to a nicer recurve bow that would cost about five times the money. I recommend a little bear hair to help the arrow stay on the rest for beginners.
If you are not sure if you are really interested in archery, have a child around 12 years of age, or are tight on funds then this is the bow for you. If you are looking to beat Robin Hood in a contest, then buy something a little better.
