    An excellent bow for a teen. I still have mine. It started peeling & I used airplane glue & tape, kept on shooting it until the rest wore off the handle. Most any cheap arrows are safe with it but do try to get a few of the same, so they are all alike in weight/length. The shortest arrow he can full draw with an inch beyond handle is good. This bow is a recurve, so string it opposite the curve of it. It has enough power to shoot 50-75 yards or so.
