    Was wondering if anyone knew anything about this company. We're still trying to decide on the best bows for our three kids and we're looking at the Bear Odyssey II for our 9 year old. Lancaster has it $189, which is the best I can find it online....just concerned it might be too good to be true.

    Lancaster is one of the best if not the best online store out there. They also have a significant retail store, although I have never seen it.
    I can tell you that going with Lancaster would not be a mistake, in fact it would be a pleasure, especially if you talk to one of their folks on the phone.

    They know their stuff.

    I give them a 10 out of 10.

    Great!! That's good news. Their price on the bow is way under anything else I could find, so I was a bit worried. Looks like if we end up with that bow we'll save a good deal of money. Thanks!

    Don't worry. They have a significant positive reputation in the industry. You need to get ahold of on of their catalogs. They have some amazing stuff in there.

    You will be amazed at their customer service. In my opinion they define how customer service should be done...

    Good luck !

    Lancaster archery is probally one of the best in the area. I bought my bow there. They were real helpful and know alot. The selection there is good also. I go there at least twice a month for suppilies and to shot the techno shoot. you cant go wrong. You may also want to try ephrata archery they have a great indoor 3-D range but the bow selection isnt as good. Good luck

    Bear Youth bows

    Not sure how big your kids are, however my 8 y/o daughter was shooting a bear pioneer. Very similar bow to the onw you are looking at purchasing. I to was trying to save some $$$ on her bow. (funny how we spend 700-900.00 on our bows, but expect a 150.00 bow to perform the same for our kids.) She is a small framed child and struggled with the bow weight. She really enjoyed shooting, but the weight wore her down quickly. I sold that bow and reinvested in a Stacey Archery Tom Thumb II. Lighter bow, smaller riser design for a childs grip. The bow arrived set to her draw length and weight and she loves it. It does cost a little more at $209.00 bare bow, but I think if you (and most importantly your kids) are serious about getting them going right, you should atleast check it out.

    If you haven't yet realized that LAS is a good place to go heres another 10-10 for them. Also at the shoots with their trailor. If you need help the are there. They have saved alot of shooters in a panic break down at the shoots and do it right. I think you get the pic.

    If I am right, this bow is discontinued so that is probably why they have it cheap.
