I watched a few youtube videos on archery form before doing this. I learned all about the proper stance, finger shooting, anchor points, etc. ... stuff I didn't know. The whole thing about finding a consistent anchor point make a HUGE difference in being able to consistently hit the target. Although the 42# model was noticeably harder to draw and hold, I was able to dial the included sight in very quickly and started getting a few bulls eye shots from even further back. The 42# set came with a longer (29") and much higher quality, aluminum Easton arrow. The 30# set's arrows were Easton fiberglass and only 28". So, if you have long arms and thus a draw length over 28" you will need some longer arrows. Both bows are very high quality and a joy to shoot. The Cartel sight that comes with the set sells for about $15 by itself and is great for getting started with this bow. The finger tabs and arm protector are also of decent quality and work just fine for getting started. I'm using one of the included paper targets in my video. If you are thinking about buying this set, I can tell you that, for the money, you won't be disappointed.
The arrows are ok until you get adjusted to using the bow, and than you may wish to upgrade to aluminum.
The sight is metal, very adjustable so it will work until you start to get a more accurate aim.
The quiver is good enough for arrows.
I can't seem to get a tight adjustment on the arm guard so I will be replacing it. The bands are elastic so it tends to move.
The stringer is perfect makes stringing this bow easy and it seems like it will last forever.
The shooting tab is nothing fancy, but okay, a lot of archers prefer tabs.
The arrow rest on the bow works but seems a bit cheap. It is easily replaceable if it does break.
The instructions are hugely bad but there are tons of videos online. Watching a how to string a bow video using a bow stringer is a must. The bottom limb is the one with all the writing on it and you can tell by the arrow rest where it goes. The string needs to be put on only one way or the notch point will be too low. There are connection points for a stabilizer and an arrow rest.
If you do not what to spend anymore money then this kit, you really don't need to; it allows you to shoot immediately. You need to obtain a target to shoot arrows into. There are several listed on Amazon.
Later upgrading can be done easily which is a plus
I am a medium strength guy and felt that 29 pounds was still a good workout, I am happy I did not go higher. I can't imagine why you would need higher poundage for target shooting.

Great bow! Ready for target shooting! Don't make the mistake of buying a bow with too high of a draw weight (especially a starter recurve bow since draw weight keeps stacking up). Read morePublished 22 months ago by Anthony
