One of the most adjustable and forgiving bows for a beginner. Mathews has included all of the company's quality into this bow such as a machined aluminum riser and the roller guard. let's not forget the harmonic dampeners as well. Combine all of the above features and sell it a a low price of less than $300.00 and there you have it, THE PERFECT BEGINNERS BOW. My daughter will get years of use out of this bow!! Thank You Mathews!!!!!
