Gave this bow to my 5 (now 6) year old son for 2011 Christmas and it was a fantastic investment. Our model did not have the whisker biscuit but had a rubber u-shaped arrow rest. I didn't like this at first but I soon realized that he would not have been able to aim using the arrow (because you can't see it with the whisker biscuit) and only use the sight pin. In my opinion it has helped him develop the skill a little better. He is consistantly hitting the target from 10, 15 and 20 yards. This of course is done with the bow limb bolts tightened to the maximum. I think this bow is fantastic for the young beginner. We'll be upgrading to the Bear Apprentice 2 for his next bow.

    Comments about Bear Archery Bear Brave III Bow Set, Black:

    I gave this Bow to my 7 year old son fot Christmas. This is by far his favorite gift. He had never shot a bow before the day he got this one. Although it has been a little dificult for him to draw due to his strength he was hitting the innercircles of his target the first day. Continued day ise has quickly built his strength to the point where the draw is not quite the problem it was. Great bow

        This was a gift for my grandson. He was so excited to use it and is doing really well. He is handling the bow well and it appears this was the best choice after doing comparisons on the internet!

            Is a Christmas gift, so hasn't been used yet. But i bought my other grandson same one last year, so I am sure it will be fine.
