Feature’s of Bear Archery 1st Shot Bow Set Review
Materials And Durability (Riser, Limbs)
The bow made of durable composite limbs with a plastic riser. The bow seems sturdy and can withstand many hours of archery in the hands of children. Who known for their roughness? It has a 14” to 16” draw length, with 8 to 12 lbs of draw weight. The design is ambidextrous. So right-handed and left-handed children alike should have no problems with it.
Any regular Dacron string will work nicely with the bow. But Bear Archery does sell a replacement string. We would not recommend even trying to put a blemish twist string on the bow. The limb tips are not reinforced. The bow would not stand up to the strength of a string that fast.
The First Shot comes with 2 pieces 27” Safetyglass arrows with plastic vanes. They have feather fletchings instead of the plastic vanes. If need to replace the arrows, be sure you buy 27” arrows. The arrows are light and strong. They’re simple and easy for the young.
Power and Accuracy
The draw weight is 8 to 12 lbs. It is heavy enough for children but not so heavy on impossible for them to draw. The bow is not very powerful at all because it designed for the young children. The bow is very accurate with the proper arrows. It allows the beginning archers to learn the wonders of archery with a very forgiving style.
