    Do any of you have this bow?

    The Merlin Archery Forester Recurve Archery Bow?

    If so is it good as a beginner's bow? I'm hoping to get it for crimbo if I've started my beginner course before then.

    The bow is a nice one and a great introduction to the realms of recurve archery however the sight window (the distance between the arrow shelf and the limb pocket at the top, the bit you will look at your sight through) is very short and can be a problem at short distances you might find your sight ring disappearing behind the wood at the limb pocket, would advise you visit your nearest pro shop and check this out or see what sort of beginners gear you use on your course, don't want you to get anything that spoils your start in archery. Perhaps the adult Polaris recurve 62 or 64" would be a better choice and allow for you to grow into it.

    Crimbo?

    As in most places you will find a split in AIUK opinion on the subject of that time of year - particularly noticeable when mentioned this early!

    This time I'm going to get it right .... or possibly not
