It’s my first bow and I love it! Feels sturdy, is light and handy. Thrilled to try it out.
Value for money and ideal design for beginners
I have used it for targets at distance up to 20 meters which is beyond specified 15 meter limit. The draw and balance are great and product looks durable. I purchased it directly from Decathlon store.
My first bow and still enjoying it one year on. I fire both sucker and real metal tip arrows and it works great for both. The bow and string are still in great condition. Not sure why the string does not come wrapped in the middle bit where you pull - or else would be perfect. Moving on to a proper bow (Intech 2). The kids will continue to enjoy it I'm sure. Good job Decathlon.
Well it's very good for beginners.
This was purchased as a birthday present for an eight year old , and what a success it was. It was testing for him to draw and hold the drawn bow but he could still do it and I think enjoyed the physical challenge. For an adult it was easily drawn.
Shooting the suction cup arrows that we bought was great fun for all and owing to the aerodynamics there is a limit to how far they can be shot. I think we were about 15-18m from our target which was a glass topped outdoor/patio table turned on its side with a paper target taped behind the glass.
Also on the bowstring there are little while marks for guiding on where to nock the arrows which is helpful.
This is a great fun bow for garden recreation.
And while this is not a criticism of the bow, the string when released can flick your arm so worth considering the accessories that protect your inner forearm.
Value is excellent and the build quality is good.
After checking out the reviews for this product, I was also slightly disappointed that there were only 2 arrows along with this bow. However I went ahead and ordered it online along with the target boss. I collected the item from the sarjapur road branch. I travelled for over 3 hours by bus and walk with these items to my home. Next day I opened the package and found there was not even one arrow. What's a bow without an arrow? Really disappointed....
Hello Mr. Ratish,
I'm really sorry to hear about your experience with the Discovery 100 Archery Bow. One of the reviewers had actually bought the Soft Archery Set which comes with Discovery 100 Archery Bow and 2 Arrows and had posted a review for the Bow and that might have led you to believe that this particular bow comes along with 2 arrows. We are really sorry that because of this your expectations were wrongly placed. Please accept our apologies for this confusion.

An excellent garden toy for all the family our youngest grandson is 8 and he is equal to the older children. We also purchased another discovery 100 bow and an extra 8 arrows. We now have great competitions, because of the design of these bows it is easy to hold and shoot with accuracy.
Great family fun. Easy to use bows.
Only two arrows.
Good strong make,
Strong and light
