Love decathlon and its services they never lets you down
I am a archery enthusiast...!!
came across the product while browsing the store. And I am more than happy with the product.
Support staff has suggested to go for and has assisted in picking the correct size. The product is of good finish and easy to assemble and even accessories are provided to attach the bowstring .
I have used the Initech initially and then bought the newer Initech 2. The riser predominantly is the same with changes primarily to the limbs. The bow comes with a Hyot arrow rest, initially (which is good), this would last you for a few hundred arrows before it needs replacement. Unfortunately when it comes time to replace the arrow rest you have no choice but to go with Initech arrow rests which are flimsy in comparison to the Hyot. Also the fastflight strings have an issue with the Serving knots; both the center and end servings tend to unravel within a few shots and if not tended to immediately can be a cause for concern.
All in all an average to good buy for a person starting the sport.
Price is great, well constructed for the price
String servings & Arrow rests
I have been using this for little over a month now and i can say it's a good product. Taking into consideration the mere pricing ₹5,299/-. I use it with Geologic Carbon arrows, and it is amazing.
Could have come with Bow sight though, didn't find one made by geologic. With this, i got the safety kit combo purchased separately :
Quality, Assembly, Casing
Should have come with Bow sight
Good bow for not a lot of money worth buying the sight aswel though and could do with a better arrow rest though
There is a quality control problem to make sure the item leaves the factory in a finished quality But this has not stopped me sorting it out as i scrapped the sharp edges down to make flush and that's why i gave it a 4 star but overall a great item. great for Hunting or Target practice
Item is a nice weight and solid
Sharp edges at joins during moulding process
i nought the 26lb poundage. found it good strong, but slightly heavy bow, had to sand down all the sharp mouded edges to smooth, both ends of string were same size so marked top loop with black maker. prefer if i cut fit a universal sighter as my cartel wouldnt fit this so need to buy another. changed the flimsy arrow rest to a heavy duty stiff arrow rest
heavy construction, sharp edges around moulded sec
This is a brilliant first time recurve bow. I got the XL, 72 inch which has 28lb pressure which is perfect for starting out. I used to use a traditional long bow, so this was a perfect bow to learn more modern techniques, love the fact you can attach sights, stabilisation, clicker etc. Would highly recommend and also buy the carbon arrows at three odd pound each, perfect for this bow.
Ease of use, great fun, perfect starter bow
This is a very well made take-down bow. I like that it includes the false-string, which makes stringing the bow very quick and simple. The string seems to be of good quality.
I'm also pleased that one can add a stabilizer, and sight to the bow.
I haven't had the opportunity to shoot with it yet, but it feels good and solid.
Well made bow, very solid construction.
Arrow rest is a bit flimsy.
