The sound of the arrow as you release, the feeling of excitement when your arrow hits the target, the confidence you gain, as you become a stronger shot. All of these are reasons I want my children to grown up learning about archery. Where do you start though, where do I get a bow that isn’t just a cheap toy or one that is so difficult that they just get frustrated instead of excited to shoot?
When I found the Daisy Longbow and compound bow I knew I had the opportunity for them to learn all about archery in an appropriate manner. Both bows are designed for children 10 years old or older, with adult supervision. Each bow comes with 2- 26 inch fiberglass target arrows, an arrow quiver, 3 finger rollers and an arm guard.
The long bow is loaded with traditional features from adult bows however it is sized for young shooters who are just starting their journey with archery. My daughter loved learning to shoot with her aunt. We all thought that design of the shoot through riser was great she could safely stay on target while keeping the arrow
centered on the rest. The single pin on the bow is adjustable to either side of the riser allowing the bow to be completely ambidextrous. The pin is able to be sighted in as close as 6 meters to allow the most naivest shooter to be able to be successful in their shot! Weighing only 10 pounds with a 16 inch to 24 inch draw. The draw weight on this starter bow is 21 pounds.
The compound bow also is designed to be shot left or right handed, allowing all youth shooters to use it without having to order special parts. The compound bow also boasts a shoot through riser and a sight cable guard that can be positioned on
either side of the bow. The Daisy compound bow features a draw weight of 13-19 pounds depending on cam position. The Draw length on the compound bow can be set as low as 16 inches and as high as 25 inches. With the ability to sight the bow in at 6 meters I am confident that even at the lowest draw weight my young children (with help) can penetrate the target. With fiberglass limbs I am confident that compound bow will last through all three of my children.
As a family we enjoy getting to spend quality time outdoors shooting our bows and now that all the children have a bow they have the opportunity to learn and respect the sport of archery. Even my
young shooters with help were able to successfully shoot the Daisy bows.
