2 of my daughters just signed up for archery through 4H i need to buy a couple of starter bows for them. Is the Bear Brave a good bow to start out with or is something out there better for around the same price?

I used to be big into archery until I took an arrow to the knee.

That bow is 7-8 times the price of the Bear Brave and i wouldnt consider that a starter price.

Try to find a local shop and take them in. Kids grow so fast and have different strengths at different ages, so it can be a bitch just buying something off the shelf.

Also double check their eye dominance before you buy.

If they might compete, I'd say take a look at the Genesis Original. It's kid-friendly, available in a variety of colors, and the only bow NASP events allow. It can be had a bit cheaper with the kit through Wal-Mart and some other retailers. A few months ago, I volunteered at a state-level event with thousands in attendance and the only equipment issues I witnessed were arrow-related. OTOH, if 4H has their own thing going, you might check with them for recommendations and rules.

This is what I needed. I showed this bow to my daughters and they said that is the bow they used when they signed up for the classes.
