Which draw weight suits me?
The draw weight of a bow is like the horsepower of a car. Higher number means stronger bow. Beginners should start with a low draw weight. We recommend 20 to max. 30 lbs. If you feel athletically fit, then rather 25 or 30 lbs. If you want to choose a light bow, go for 20 lbs.
