The bow itself is awesome, great quality, very sturdy, easy to assemble/disassemble.
Emily
Easy to put together but very uncomfortable grip and the arrow rest for aiming is awful which is just a sharp little wire that swivels to the side.
M. Campo-Noya
The tip of the arrows keep coming out though so buy better arrows if you plan on practicing more.

After learning the hard way why it is absolutely important NOT to dry fire a bow (= pull the bow string and let it snap WITHOUT an arrow attached) and thanks to the seller replacing two damaged limbs at no charge (even though there was a written warning in the manual which I stupidly ignored and it was my own fault that the limbs got cracks) I was able to use and test-shoot the bow this past weekend and it was real fun for me. The weight of the bow is just right - not too heavy, so it's easy for transportation but not too light either which makes it possible to get a steady aim and shot.

A little issue I noticed is the sprayed on camouflage paint easily cracks or scrapes off where the wing nuts are attaching the limbs to the grip and riser, but that's just a beauty issue and after all it's a survival bow, not a museum artifact...

Overall I'm pleased with the bow itself, the arrows that come along are good quality. The quiver has velcro to close the lid of the compartment that holds the bow segments, which is only glued on. It would be better to add some sowing stitches, since the one part of the velcro came off when opening the lid. Maybe the seller can improve that part.

The reason why I decided for this bow was also the fact that it can be detached into rather small parts and the bow doesn't need much room when disassembled into its segments. Definitely a plus for transportation, especially when on foot out in the terrain.

It was nice dealing with the seller - as I mentioned they replaced the broken limbs which got ruined due to my own fault not following the instructions/warning about dry firing the bow!

As the title of this review says, this is my first bow, please keep in mind that the review is made by a novice first time shooter. With that said, the last couple of months I've been upgrading my camping gear and while shopping on Amazon came across the Spectre Compact Take-down survival Bow and Arrow Set(I later found the company's website is actually xpectre.com) and after doing a bit of looking around, first thing I noticed is that for the price, I simply couldn't find anything like it anywhere especially for the price. The fact that it breaks down is great and I was able to pack it easily(which was a big selling point for me). All the other bows on Amazon in the same price range and more are all listed as "youth" bows. The set arrived at my house a day before the estimated delivery date so that was the first good sign.

Once I got it, I found that it went together very easily and after I got it all setup it felt like a good solid product and not some cheap plastic toy (actually the only plastic part on this bow is the arrow rest, which even the replacement I got from my local Archery shop is also plastic so I guess for that type of arrow rest, it's normal). A friend suggested that I go to a range to maybe pick up some pointers from the regulars there and he was absolutely right about that! I went to a local range and it was great to get some tips from the folks there and best part was I wasn't laughed out of the place for having this bow.

The only thing though is at the range they have a scale setup that tells you how many pounds draw a bow is. One of the employees put this bow on their scale and it drew only about 30lbs. The listing says that it's 50/55lbs... I emailed Spectre to let them know...

My first impression- Ugly, uncomfortable, cold. My father taught me archery with a Bear recurve. Gorgeous wood, elegant lines, and a grip that felt so natural in the hand; a work of art. I got this, and...

...ugly.

So I put it together, strung it, and took it in the yard for a few shots. The assembly is very intuitive for anyone who's used a recurve before, and it's got a bit more punch than my old one. Mind you, it's been about fifteen years since I picked up a bow, and the bear was probably 30-35# draw. I put 20 arrows down with it, and I'm definitely impressed. I'll watch out for the de-laminations mentioned, but I've had no problems so far and I plan to adhere to the 'no dry-fire' warning. As for the arrows, no fletching issues yet, and I'm not terribly concerned given the value of the bow itself versus price paid. The arrow rest- I tore it off straight out of the packing. It looked useless, so it didn't get used. Twenty arrows with my finger as the arrow rest; it shows but I'm no worse for wear, though definitely wearing gloves next time. I do plan to follow the recommendation to cord-wrap the grip as I now have a distinct crease in my palm. Also, I wasn't a fan of quick-releases, but given the draw on this bow I think I'll invest in one so I don't end up with an arthritic claw.

As far as breakdown and portability, this bow is stellar. Again, very intuitive, but it seems to be made more for those a little more experienced and caring to their gear.

Second impression- Still ugly; but I can make it comfortable, and I've definitely warmed up to it.

This bow is simple, yet effective. It breaks down into three pieces, and weighs less than five pounds. As long as you put it together properly, it is very sturdy. The arrow rest could be a bit better; it's a sliver of thin plastic.

It stores quite nicely in/on a pack, though the full-length arrows are not the best choice for backpacking. Take-down arrows would compliment this bow quite nicely; I'll have to try to source/build some.
