The original Apprentice compact bow was a popular entry level youth and women's bow for several years. For 2012, Bear has decided to update the bow and has dubbed it the Apprentice 2. For this review we'll be taking a look at the Apprentice 2 and why it offers an even better value than the original Apprentice.
By the numbers the Apprentice 2 is a compact bow with an axle-to-axle (ATA) of 27.6" inches and a brace height of 6.1", both of which are just a touch longer than the original Apprentice. However the bow still weighs in at a very light 2.9 pounds, has a peak speed of 265 fps, and is offered in left or right hand versions.
