With all of this in mind, it is easy to see how the Gen – X Compound Bow has achieved its impressive 4-star rating, as many users have taken to reviews in a way to praise this product for the likes of its innovative design and construction quality, and accuracy when shooting.

Others have been sure to complement the Gen – X Compound Bow for its adaptable draw length and weights meaning it is perfect for hunters of all ages and sizes.

Although the majority of the reviews for the Gen – X Compound Bow are positive and complimentary, there are a small proportion of those that have found that this product is not best suited for their needs or have even had troubles with the bow such as missing components in their package which has lead to them being unable to use it successfully.
