ROCHESTER, New York, (January 15, 2013) –Crosman Corporation, long known for innovative, high quality products for the shooting sports, has introduced two new bows to its youth archery line. The Crosman Trapper™ youth compound bow and the Buggy Bow™ youth long bow each feature lightweight and compact designs that provide a comfortable advantage for students and beginning archers.
According to Crosman Product Manager, Tom Clark, “If you want to guarantee your young archer develops his or her skills with an appropriately sized and weighted bow, choose one of our new Crosman youth bows. Pick the Trapper compound bow if you wish to prepare your archer for action in the field, or, if target shooting is more your style, choose the classic design of the Buggy Bow long bow,” he said.
Says Clark, “The Crosman Trapper is an excellent choice for the beginning archer. With the Trapper, you can “teach basic shooting technique with ease, and, because of the cam system and 65% let off, it works well for all body sizes.” The Trapper easily converts from right to left handed shooting, depending on the shooter, and features an ambidextrous hand grip. It is 25-inches from axle to axle and has a light, 10-pound draw weight. “It’s perfect for beginners,” says Clark. “The brace height is 7.5 inches and offers forgiveness during the shot. The bow has an adjustable sight, finger and arm guards, and velocities of up to 68 fps. The Trapper comes with three field arrows and a quiver, everything you need to get started,” he said.
“For those who want to teach more classic style archery, choose the Buggy Bow,” says Clark. This youth long bow is suitable for archers of every size and provides all the features needed to learn archery. The Buggy Bow is 45 inches from tip to tip with limbs specially designed for balance and forgiveness. “With a 15-pound draw weight and a 24-inch max draw, this bow allows for years of use before trading up,” Clark said. “The Buggy Bow has an ambidextrous grip for optimum hand placement, arm guard and finger guard. With three wood field arrows and a belt quiver,” says Clark, “This set is ideal for beginning a lifelong love of archery.”
The new Crosman youth archery bows will be available at retail in the spring of 2013. The Trapper has an MSRP of $50 and the Buggy Bow has an MSRP of $32.
