Outdoor gear for March 28

Youth compound bow

THE SITUATION: It is often difficult to introduce a child to a new sport activity because the equipment is not made to fit their size.

AN ANSWER: For parents who want their children to try archery, Daisy Outdoor Products has started a new archery line. It includes a compound bow model. The company says the bow is appropriate for children 10 and older, with adult supervision.

THE DETAILS: The bow has a draw weight of 13-19 pounds, with a draw length of 16-25 inches. It features a shoot-through riser that makes it easy for both right and left handed shooters to safely get on target while keeping the arrow centered on the rest. The sight and cable guard can be positioned on either side of the bow for left- or right-handed shooters. The bow can be sighted in as close as 6 meters, ideal for any beginner archer, according to the company.

The package includes two 26-inch fiberglass target arrows, a quiver, three finger rollers and an arm guard.

PRICE: $64.99.
