Default String and Arrow Info

Hey,
I searched at barnettcrossbows.com, no strings, no Recruit Recurve and very little info on what crossbows they listed. Amazon, very little.
Where would be a good place for a string for the Recruit Recurve and what would the proper length be?
Amazon/J and D Custom Strings seem scary. (according to reviews)
At Barnett they have (NO) arrow info, just the price and a picture. Walmart has more product info than Barnett or Amazon.
Any link in the right direction would be a great help.

thanks for your time,
michaelclyde

have look and see if you can find your model
in the owners manual should tell you string length, and about any decent bow shop an MAKE you a new string!
and as for bolts, again, your owners manual will have what size you need ! and they too can be had at about any GOOD bow shop

Thanks for the info and links. I was waiting to order the Recruit when I got as much of the needed items rounded up as I could. So, I don't have the manual yet. Hopefully there's one included.
Just checked online and found the Recruit Compound and a few of those "Give your credit card and you can have it" sites but no Recurve. All Barnett had was a Universal crossbow guide and a couple of Recurve diagrams. I tried twice to get them on the phone - nada.
I wonder if this is a sign about Barnett and their products. It's hard to know.
I'll check out those links you gave me.

thanks again

if you want a recurve crossbow,m why not buy from another maker if you seem to have issue's with barnett, several others make them\
and honestly WHY are you set on a recurve bow any how
the advantages IMO,. of a compound x bow with its narrower limb design, is way more user friendly!

and you should never IMO< be buying parts and add on's to a BOW you don;t even have, as if you fail to get one, the parts will all be wasted funds, as you will never get back what you paid for them?

and no offence, but if I was buying a recurve X bow, I'd be looking at, Excalibur Crossbows, they been in the game a LONG time, great reputation and history of good customer service!

Hi there..
If you are looking for a recurve crossbow, There are some pretty cool crossbow makers other than barnett.
You can search for recurve bow like these:

Southwest Archery Tigershark Take-down Recurve Bow

Southland Archery Supply Take-down Recurve Bow

And to me, Amazon always has been a safe spot. So far i have never encountered a bad experience with Amazon...
