Great intro bow for family
We bought this bow so that the whole family could use a single bow and it does deliver on that promise. It is not a junky toy bow. We specifically went with the Pro for the extra power on the top end, and I am glad we did. At first even the lowest setting seemed too strong for my wife and 7 year old son. But after they played with it a bit and got used to the movement, they did much better. Again, I am happy we went with the the Pro model.
The main drawback (no pun) to all the Genesis bows is the large brace height (distance between the handle and the string). That means that smaller archers cannot get enough pull to generate power, regardless of how strong they are. My son also has a Diamond Nuclear Ice with a much smaller brace height. Even though we set both bows to the same weight, he gets a longer draw and more power from the Nuclear Ice. The arrows fly flatter and sink deeper into the target. BUT, he can't share the Nuclear Ice with anyone else because it's set to exactly his draw length.
So we are very pleased with the Genesis Pro. It's a bow the whole family can grow into and use for years. That makes it a very worthy investment, in my mind.

Great Sturdy Bow
By Schrödinger's Cat
This bow is nice and sturdy and is strong enough for target practice. I does not come with an arrow rest but that is so you can choose your own and they are sold online and most sporting goods stores. It has room for attachments and the draw weight can easily be adjusted with the included allen wrench. Great upgrade from a basic recurve bow.

Genesis Pro Bow
By Craig S. Lawrance
Great service, prompt delivery and oh yea the product is fantastic. I think that the bow for my intended use is spot on and fits the description perfectly. I would recommend that the option of the manufacturers arrow rest be given to the customer at the time of purchase. Thank you.
