    how do I figure out limb weight?

      A:

      Bow weight is determined by the age of your child, and how active they are; I suggest getting a poundage that they can pull back comfortably that will also help to develop the correct form for shooting the bow.

      A:

      For the youth set there are three sizes with different draw weights. You can generally go by the age range. If you want the bow to last longer for your child you can get the next larger size but know that it will be harder to be accurate if the weight rating is high. The advantage I the large size is an adult woman or small adult man can use it too.

  • Q:

    My daughter just turned 9. She's petite, and weighs 55 lbs. She had done archery several times at different camps, and loves it. She really wants an archery kit for Christmas. I'm wondering if the
    3Rivers Youth Recurve Bow & Arrow Kit would be a good fit for her, and if so, what size I should order. I wouldn't say she's super strong, but she does have a bit of experience. Thanks!

      Yes, I think it would be ideal for her. I would recommend the 48" bow, 20# @ 24"

      Thanks

  • Q:

    Can limbs for a different draw weight be put on this bow (or the apparently similar Samick Polaris Youth Takedown Bow) as an upgrade, or must another entire bow be purchased?

      A:

      While this is not a very powerful bow, I do not recommend it be used
      inside of a house. Like any weapon, it has the potential to cause
      damage. Use either outside against an appropriate target or at an
      indoor range is highly recommended.

      A:

      We have only used this bow outdoors, but I assume that you are asking about an indoor archery range, and I cannot think of any reason why you would not be able to use this bow indoors as well. It is a smaller bow designed for children so it would not be too powerful in my opinion. I don't know what kinds of restrictions there might be at an indoor range so you may want to check into where ever you plan to go.

  • Q:

    when ordering a youth bow and it asks right or left hand, is the question asking if the child is right handed or left handed or is the question is the bow for the left hand (ie child is right handed)?
    my son is right handed which should i choose?
    thank you.

      A:

      The hand he writes with is the one you would select. The only exception would be a vision problem in the eye opposite the writing hand. If there were significant vision problems in the left eye for a right handed archer.
      So to clearly answer your question you select right hand for your son.

      You will want to choose a right handed bow.

      Answered on 11/29/2012 by Justin from 3Rivers Archery
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      It is usually BUT NOT ALWAYS an indication of the regular hand preference. To tell which hand the child should shoot from have them hold their arm out directly in front of them with their thumb up, covering an imobile object - could be the target, could be something in your house, doesn't really matter. Then have them take turns to close their right eye and then left eye and see which action makes the item seem to jump. If the object shifts or jumps when they close their right eye then they are right handed, and vice-versa for the left eye. The object should not move at all when the correct eye is open. We have 2 kids in archery and this was the first thing the instructor did to discern which bow to shoot from. We have two lefties and it turned out that both also shoot left handed,  however our instructor told us that occasionally they'll get a regular righty shooting left handed or a regualr lefty shooting right handed.
       
      So take the test and then you'll know. I hope this helps.  Lucy.

  • Q:

    Is this set made in the USA? My daughter is 8, would this set be usuable for her?
    Asked on 11/23/2012 by Jenny from United States

      A:

      Hi,
      I cannot vouch for where all of the items are made, however I have 2
      daughters, age 12 and 10, and an 8 year old son who is very small for
      his age, 40#'s and 46" tall. We have only had one chance to take it
      out shooting but all three kids were excited. The girls both were
      able to draw the bow, but my son could only draw it partway. Again,
      he is small for his age and the bow is definitely something he would
      be able to grow into. If he were bigger and could almost draw it, he
      has the determination to stick with something until he can do it, but
      this bow is a little big for him at his size. Otherwise, this is a
      great kit and I was very pleased with the quality and the ability to
      break it down for storage. We were able to find videos on the website
      about setting up all of the components. I would wholeheartedly
      recommend this kit for a beginner.

      No, a majority of the items in this kit are not make in the US.

      Yes, this set would work well for an 8 year old.

      It may be a little hard for her. My grandson is 10 and he's just barely able to pull it back far enough. She may need something a little smaller.

    My daughter is 10 yrs old and she is about 5ft 2in in height and wieghts about 100 lbs. I'm not sure what size would be best for her as far as the limb weight is concerned. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This would also be her first ever bow. Truely a beginner.

  • Q:

    My 10 y/o son is asking for an archery set up for christmas and i have no idea where to start.

    He is a small, athletic, and ambidextorous. He is @ 4ft 4in, with good manual and physical dexterity. We don't want to spend a lot on the equipment until we know he likes archery, but are willing to spend enough on decent gear to make it easy for him to like archery.

    your suggestions?

      A:

      I would say that we are impressed with the quality of the set that you are looking at our son is about 5'1" and we ended up getting the 62" model he is just right at the appropriate length. At 4'4" that would be too big for him. The set is great and we were directed to this by a number of people that teach and are enthusiast. Our son had really enjoyed archery at camp.
      Good luck.

      This set would work great. The 24# bow should work perfectly for him. This set is not ambidextrous, you will have to chose a dexterity for the bow.
