Great beginner's compound bow with lots of adjustability: 15-70 lbs draw weight, 19-30 inches draw lenght (1 inch increments) without using a bow press. The Riot weighs 3.85 lbs and has a 7 inch brace height, 31 inches ATA, 310 IBO speed. The draw cycle is smooth with a hard backwall and about 3/4 inch valley. It is balanced to tip forward after the shot with a sight mounted on it. The vibrations are cushioned by a large rubberized grip. Construction is very good and the Dead End string stop does the job. I started with 45 lbs and I'm working up the draw weight, currently at 58lbs. The adjustability is great for a beginner.
