This is a functional, but not great, setup for beginners. 1: The point on the arrow has to moving blades which are attached by a rolled pin. This pin is not set well, and fell out within 5 min of use, to be replaced by a bent nail which performed twice as well. 2: The string is weak and broke in 3 different places on the first day. Second, it is only 50 feet long, which is too short for many shots. 3. The arrow shaft, and "reel" are of good construction, and are the best built pieces of the kit, which is sad, because they are the least important to the function of the unit. Expect to upgrade these parts in the future, or just buy them in the first place. Quality parts will cost less than $20 more than this kit.
