The other option of course is to call in to Sarah @ Master Archery in Enniscorthy and have a chat with her sarah@masterarchery.ie. She has a range of bows and a practice area so you can try before you buy.

I would certainly recommend doing a beginners course so you at least know what you are talking about and will have some idea as to your draw length and what draw weight that will suit. There are a lot of beginner archers out there who have bought a bow and then once the joined a club have been told that they bought the wrong thing and had wasted their money.

Not sure how small these fold up but parcel motel northern ireland address could be another option for some people.

You'll get help from the club after you've finished a course. You may be able to use a club bow for a while too.

After being measured up at his Archery lessons, my son decided to go with this set: Aim Archery
It seems like a very good deal. I couldn't find much to suit him on the FB site.

Got the kit, and it seems to be very good value. Kap bow, Easton Jazz arrows. Shipped via DHL.

I also want a bow, but something without much drawing strength, or smth that I can regulate.

Bear in mind its not just the poundage, a bow should be bought to also fit your height and draw length and suit the style of archery.

e.g. Theres no point in buying a fancy Olympic recurve if your goal is to shoot traditional and definitely no point in buying a recurve if you want to shoot compound.

Go to a range and talk to a coach about your archery goals or you'll end up buying a load of gear you don't need or doesn't work right together.

Even when you DO know what kind of bow you want you'll still end up buying loads of gear your don't need. I have two bows yet I own four cases...feckin' impulse buys.
