Goodman – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Barnett Sportflight Recurve Archery Set (Sports) When I went shopping for bows online, I didn’t know what to look for at first. I went straight to reviews, and was a little disheartened when I saw that most of the reviews were written by adults who purchased this bow for their children. I am a 6’2 20 year old guy who has never done any kind of archery, but has had an interest for many years. I was looking for a bow for ME, and I needed one that would accommodate my size and age. This bow looked the most “adult” to me, so I went ahead and purchased it. Upon its arrival I opened up the box and took it into the yard. I saved a little money by using a cardboard box as a target. I was surprised on how heavy the string is. I understand why the reviews all mention that some children may not be able use this one. It’s true! I can do it fairly easily, however after shooting a few dozen arrows I have to stop. I cannot speak for the accuracy of the bow, because I have only used this one, so I have no baseline to compare it to. However, I will say that it is much harder to hit a target than I thought. I’ve only hit the bullseye once out of maybe 100 shots. As far as power is concerned, when I am actually able to hit my cardboard box, the arrow will ALWAYS pierce it in at least one point of contact. Depending on the angle and power of the shot, the arrow will sometimes pierce the opposite side of the box too, and rarely it will completely pass through the entire thing. The arrows that came with the bow are definitely cheap, but have held up surprisingly well. They are 27″ and have done a little better than the dozen 26″ arrows I bought at another store. I suppose it is all up to personal preference, but I recommend buying at least 10 additional 27″ arrows to accompany the bow. I definitely think this is an excellent beginner’s bow, and I highly recommend it to BIG kids, AND adults! Pros:StrongSturdyVery funFairly cheap Cons:Unable to come up with any at the moment. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 53 of 55 people found the following review helpful Not a Recurve Bow, November 2, 2011 By Amazon Customer (Austin, TX USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Barnett Sportflight Recurve Archery Set (Sports) This is not a recurve bow. This is a longbow. It’s a nice longbow, especially for the price, but it is definitely not a recurve bow. The arrows that come with, as expected, are pretty cheap, especially when it comes to the fletching. Draw weight is a bit low, doesn’t quite feel like 25Lbs at full draw, but I haven’t tested it with a force gauge either. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply 32 of 34 people found the following review helpful very pleased, June 25, 2010 By X-Tine – Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
