    Comments about Explorer 2.0 Takedown Recurve Bow:

    I started with a 20lb beginner bow. I started to understand my beginner bow and the demands it mad on my body. I wanted to step up to a killing bow weight (40lb or higher) but was unsure about the jump in weight as even a 'simple beginner' 20lb bow was pretty intense to start with. I had shot for the last year on and off with my 20lb and was getting the itch to upgrade as I felt confident with the results I was achieving with my beginner bow.

    I was looking to upgrade but 45 lbs seemed intimidating. The Explorer 2.0 54" 36lb Takedown Recurve bow was price dropped to $109.99.

    BEST 110 bucks I ever spent.
    The initial adjustment period was hard, but now shots shoot flatter and harder and truer than before. I have an average 6" group at 10 yards. The real difference is when I back out to 20 yards.
    I am grouping within 6" also at 20 yards.
    This bow is a joy to shoot, a remarkably well made product and has accessory ports.
    Next bow is a 50#. Using this bow as a step up from basic to advanced was really this bows time to shine. I will love shooting it forever after I have moved along to heavier bows. My Explorer 2.0 really was a coming of age story for a novice archer.

    Comments about Explorer 2.0 Takedown Recurve Bow:

    Bought this as a gift for my sister. The bow is 36 pounds draw weight. She shoots arrows of different weight and spine with no elevated rest and still she manage to have groups under 1 ft at 20 yards. Excellent bow until now.(We have it for about a month).

      Comments about Explorer 2.0 Takedown Recurve Bow:

      I have been teaching my grandson traditional archery for several years and this year he sprouted enough to move on from his 48" recurve, This is the first time any of us have owned a take down bow, and it seems like a substantial and well made product. It is also quite beautiful and shoots well and accurately. He is very happy with the bow and passed his old bow on to his younger sister.

        Got the 62 incher 29# for myself to shoot with Grandaughter. Looks real nice in person and shoots well so far. Wife liked it so I sent for the 54 incher 24# to give her on Mothers Day. Can't hunt with them but should be real fun in the side yard.

          This was a gift for my son and it was easy to assemble and ready to shoot. He picked it up immediately and was able to accurately shoot. I had him on a 3D target range within his first two days and he did well.

            I bought this bow for my daughter (age 9) as a gift. I've had her shooting other kid bows since she was old enough to hold one, and this was her first big girl bow. I'm quite impressed with the quality of this bow. It has a beautiful riser, and shoots really well. My daughter absolutely loves it.
