Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I felt compelled to write a review on this since the other review is poor and has nothing to do with the actual product. I was looking for a first bow set for my 10 year old daughter who was interested in archery. I wanted something inexpensive but not "cheap". The Barnett "Lil Sioux Jr." was perfect. The bow itself is sturdy and seems to be high quality construction. Even the arrows were impressive for the price. I expect they may be damaged from extended use, but that's normal for practice arrows. I would highly recommend this bow set for a kid interested in archery.
I bought both the Lil Sioux and the Lil Banshee bows for my kids (ages 9 and 11). Here is a summary of things you need to know.
1) The Lil Banshee (being a compound bow) is much easier for a child to draw. My 9 year old daughter, and 11 year old son both prefer the Lil Banshee. They simply find it more fun to use. So as it stands now, my 9 year old gets the Lil Banshee and my 11 year old is stuck with the Lil Sioux. If you are only going to buy one, make it the Lil Banshee, as your kids will be less likely to give up.
2) Both of these bows are too small for an adult to use. I tried. Seriously, you don't want to mess around with these small bows. If you want to join your kids cheaply, purchase the Bear Archery...
Got this for the church children to play with in the afternoon in the big field. Usually the parents are upstairs talking while the kids run around or play on their electronics. I made a PVC stand and hung balloons for targets. The church had a really old, cheap bow from who knows when, so I bought three bows of different sizes for the different sized children. We had maybe 8 or so kids that loved to play with them before it got rainy and/or cold late fall. When the weather gets better we'll get back to shooting.
This bow worked well for elementary school kids. We have a smaller one for the 5-6 year olds and a bigger one for teenagers. The kids roughly 7 through 12 liked this one. The draw weight was manageable for them, both boys and girls. Of course with young children, they vary a lot in size and strength. I think maybe one had played some archery previously, but for most this was a first time. There was a lot of missing, but popping a balloon made them real...
