      A:

      It depends upon the draw length of the person using it. A good rule of thumb is your height divided by 2.5 and then add 1" to that.

      my grand daughter has this bow and I purchased the 28" long arrows, they are a little long but that is ok, a slightly longer arrow shoots fine.

      A:

      That will all depend on the size and draw of the person shooting the bow. What I did with my boys as the one I bought is shot by my two oldest and will be passed to the two youngest. I bought the longer arrows in the style that I liked.

      Arrow length depends on draw length,
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sX9pTTdNerQ. Add 1" for proper point
      clearance. May I suggest that you consider the NASP Genesis V2 youth
      arrows instead? I tried both, and the NASP are much better, and can be cut
      shorter if needed.

  • Q:

    Looking into this bow for my son, 14 yrs old, 5'6" tall, 185 lbs. but I am thinking he should be using an adult bow because of his size and strength. Is there a similar recurve which is suitable for a young adult beginner of his size? Thanks in advance for replies!

      A:

      I would agree on the adult bow. For just a bit more in cost, check out the
      Samick Sage 3 piece take-down bow. If he is a beginning archer, you can
      start with a relatively low poundage on the limbs as he practices on
      targets (maybe 30# or 35#). As he develops his skills, he can upgrade to a
      stronger set of limbs for hunting (approx. $75). At his size, he could
      likely pull 50# or higher even now, but no need to wear yourself out with
      stronger limbs on a recurve when you're trying to hone your skills in
      target practice! As he develops and refines his skills at a lower
      poundage, he will easily be able to upgrade the limbs to a level needed for
      hunting if he chooses. Hope this helps!

      I got the 54" version of this bow for my 13-year old daughter, and it was perfect for her. I think your son would probably need a larger size.

      the Polaris youth bow is awesome I have purchased 2 of them for grandkids, for your son I would recommend the samick sage recurve, its a little more money but you can buy stronger limbs later on if you want for hunting or just shooting, my grand son who is about the same size as yours shoots a 40 pound sage and loves it and also will be able to hunt with it next year. have fun and 3 rivers is a great place to get your traditional gear

      I would recommend the Samick Sage. It is build similar to the Samick Polaris but comes in heavier weights. The weights range from 25# to 60#, I am sure there is a weight that will be a very good match for him.

      I would recommend the 54" bow, 24# @ 26" for a 10 year old girl. The arrows that would work well are the Youth Wood Arrows. Item #4292X.

      We bought the Polaris Take down bow when our daughter was 10 years old. It was perfect for her. She is 11 now and 52 in., not a very big or particularly strong girl. It is still perfect. She will get many years use out of it. We bought the 54" bow, 24#. Best purchase we made.

    If I buy the 62" 36# bow, would that be appropriate for an adult? Height and weight being about 5'9 190 lbs. Or is this bow just strictly for youths.

      A:

      For an Adult I would not recommend this bow. The bow I would recommend is the Sage Take down. With the sage you can start with a lower weight and then later on get the replacement limbs in a heaver poundage.

      A:

      It should be fine. I bought the 54" 24# version and my wife has shoot it several times with my early teen age boys. So with the longer axle length you should have no problem.

      I use a 45# 62" recurve myself and I'm 6'2" 200#. Draw length will be fine but if you don't draw it to 28" then you will lose power.

      Sure it would. Its a great beginner bow. The lower poundage will let you concentrate on correct form.And they are fun to shoot.

      A:

      I believe you need a 62" AMO (or 58" actual length) string. MAKE SURE THE
      STRING IS NOT FAST FLIGHT. Despite what anyone else tells you, Polaris
      limbs CANNOT TAKE FAST FLIGHT STRINGS. This is straight from Samick. Do
      yourself a favor and get a custom string. Archerytalk.com, send a private
      message to member LBR or BarneySlayer. Both make fantastic strings that
      will WAY outperform Samick strings. Make sure to mention non-fast flight.

      A:

      It's difficult to say, but if 27#'s is really easy for you to pull back, then 36# is probably about right. If you can try out some other bows that are heavier first, it will give you a better idea before purchasing a new one.

      Answered on 10/2/2013 by Sam from 3Rivers Archery

      A:

      There is no way I can guess what draw weight would be best for you. I don't have any way of knowing how strong you are. The bow that is pictured, below, is available in different models. One of the models comes with a riser that can be used with limbs from 30 pounds, or so, to limbs of 40 pounds, or more. My son has two models of this same bow. His first bow had a draw weight of about 26 pounds. We recently bought him a bow with a riser that would accommodate limbs up to 40 pounds, or so, draw weight. He is currently shooting a 36-pound bow, which is just a little too much for him right now. He will grow into the stronger bow, but it will take a little time.
      We should not have skipped straight from 26 pounds to 36 pounds. If the bow that you are shooting now is way too easy for you to draw, you may want to go up 10 pounds. You may only want to go up five pounds. There is no way for me to know what the next step should be for you. But, if you go with the bow that is pictured here, and select the correct model, you won't have to keep buying complete new bows, as you get stronger. You will only have to buy new limbs, which will save you a lot of money, over time.
      I wish I could help more. My son is about your height. He is also thirteen years old. His 26-pound bow became way too easy for him to draw, but 36 pounds was too much of a jump to take all at once. My son has been shooting for less than a year.

      The string that comes with this bow does work well. but I would suggest that a B-50 double loop string part # 4243-44 will be of better quality.

      A:

      Yes, nearly any other string will do.
      *However!*
      Make sure the string is a dacron/B-50 string, or any *non fast-flight*
      material.
      This bow cannot use fast flight material.
