KESHES is a name that may not ring too many bells, and they weren’t on our radar until this bow was recommended by another member of our staff. It may not have a fancy moniker, but this takedown bow is solid and one of the more affordable options around.
This bow is 62-inches with a layered wooden riser sporting rounded edges. The limbs don’t set in a pocket, but they do still attach or detach quickly thanks to a couple of knob screws.
They aren’t flush or what we would consider sleek, but it’s a “tool-less” system, so you won’t need to keep track of a wrench.
Another perk are the pre-installed brass bushings. This makes upgrades easy down the line although we can’t say the same about one area.
The limbs are sturdy and wooden with a black fiberglass facing, and while you can swap them out, the company doesn’t sell add-on limbs.
That should be cause for a pause if you are a serious archer or think you need to upgrade down the line. It also makes choosing the right draw weight all the more important. You can use other limbs from KESHES recurve bows, but it will be a process of trial and error.
This bow is available is on the lower end of the draw weight spectrum, but available for right and left-handed archers.
The power maxes out at 35 pounds and drops down to 15 pounds in 5-pound increments. While the top end rules it out for most hunters, the low draw weight is ideal for beginners or the young archers in training.
But what’s included?
KESHA produced one of the more affordable models on the market with this bow, and they’ve thrown in a few solid extras as well. You’ll receive a sight, stick-on arrow rest, stringer tool, and a 14-strand Dacron string. As you’d expect, there is an instruction manual to help you set this one up as well
While we dig this set, don’t be misled by the listing which bills it as a “Bow and Arrow.” While you’ll get the former, there are no arrows included with this particular set.
Overall, we feel it’s a great practice bow or an excellent choice for beginners given the budget-friendly price point. Just choose the draw weight carefully and don’t plan on hunting anything large.
