The bow has a pretty good structure, nice and sturdy. The draw weight I wish would be a little heavier but overall everything works fine. I can shoot up to about 20-25 yards with accuracy and for the price that you pay for this bow its a great deal. I know crossman is a gun brandbut I took a risk and was way happy with it. Yes this is a youth beginner bow but it does not mean adults can’t use it. Its only considered this because the draw weight is not 35+ In my opinion this is just a great bow… So if you want a inexpensive but still a good beginner to intermediate bow this is defiantly the way to go. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply 78 of 85 people found the following review helpful A cheap way to see if archery is for your kid, January 10, 2013 By Squeaky’s Daddy – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Crosman Archery Sentinel Youth Recurve Bow, Right Hand (Sports) I purchased this bow for my 11 year old daughter for Christmas. Since the release of Brave and The Hunger Games she’s been itching to “get her inner Katniss / Merida on. If you’re looking for a high quality bow this ain’t it BUT if you’re looking for a bow for your child to give archery a try then this one is right up your alley. It’s very easy to use and performs surprisingly well for the price. The first two shots she tried didn’t even make it to the target however after a little coaching and adjusting she wasn’t necessarily hitting the bulls eye every time but at least was hitting the target every time thereafter. I nocked a few arrows myself with the bow and as I said, it’s not a Hoyt Olympic level bow but is surprisingly smooth and performs pretty well from the 20 yard mark we were firing from. In summary, if your kids are itching to try out archery this is a good choice that is good enough to perform and you don’t have to take out a second mortgage to buy it only to find out that your kids didn’t like archery. I would advise buying some better arrows, a different arm guard and shooting tab though because the ones that come with the bow ARE very cheap and don’t perform nearly as well as the bow does. You can pick up a half dozen decent arrows, arm guard and shooting tab for around $25 if you shop around. Overall, you really can’t go wrong with this bow as long as you’re not expecting a professional level bow. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 40 of 42 people found the following review helpful Pretty Good, January 5, 2013 By Ryling Targaryen – This review is from: Crosman Archery Sentinel Youth Recurve Bow, Right Hand (Sports) This is great for beginner or anyone interested in getting into archery. By beginner, I do not mean only kids but teens, young adults, college students, post college, etc. You got to realize that for the price you are paying, you won’t be getting some super fancy olympic type of recurve. This is a great bow to ease you into archery. It says 20 lbs and that seems little but trust me — after a half hour to an hour of shooting, you will begin to feel like you’re actually working out. The pin sight is honestly a bit useless as are most of the other accessories except for the leather finger tab which is quite useful. The quiver is also nice because it attaches straight to the bow. Of course you will not be pulling arrows from it at a fast rate but it’s nice to keep your arrows in storage. Arm guard is okay but if you are wearing a sweater or long sleeve you should be okay. The arrows are not bad. I know a lot of people have complained about the arrows being cheap and breaking easily but I would suggest shooting from close range first at foam/cardboard targets. Shooting at ‘softer targets’ will ensure that you aren’t hitting your arrow against all sort of hard surfaces. That being said, it might be wise to get other arrows for the long run. Not bad at all. It looks pretty hip as well. Note that setup might be a bit confusing as the instructions and diagram it comes with is completely useless and not very helpful but it’s not rocket science; you’ll figure it out. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
