My husband put the bow together. It came in a box in pieces and wasn’t hard to assemble. There were no directions included, but there is a video on the site that helped make it clear.

Once we had it assembled, we headed out in the backyard to get some practice.
About the Bow
Polaris Youth Recurve Bow
The popular Polaris youth recurve bow is crafted from Maple and Walnut hardwood and is ideally suited for any young shooter. The convenience of a no-tools-needed take-down system allows easy storage and transport. Designed to allow shooting off the shelf or from an elevated rest. (Included) Available in right and left hand.
All models comes with bushings installed to accept sights, stabilizers, and plungers.
My opinionThe bow is well made and looks like it will last a lifetime. It comes with a leather arm protector and is easily portable. You can take it apart easily for storage or transport. Even though it is geared for youth, it is also a great set for adults who are wanting learn the sport. With the release of the Hunger Games movie and the popularity of the book series, the sport of archery is not going anywhere but up.
My 10 year old went first. He was able to pull the string and within 3 tries had actually gotten the arrow into the target. This set is perfect for him. He may have just found a great new hobby!
My 7 year old was able to pull the string but couldn’t quite get the arrow to the target….yet. She is determined to keep trying. In fact, we’re heading out in a few minutes to try again!
My 5 year old is just a bit too young to really hit the target. He was very motivated though and wanted his turn! When he actually got the arrow next to the straw, he was super proud of himself!
This is a great set for the kids to start learning about archery. I know that my kids are now able to experience a new hobby and sport and develop a skill that will benefit them through life.
