    Hey, my name is Collin and I'm 25 years old. I just got into archery about 10 months ago because my fingers were amputated due to sepsis. After I got out of the hospital I knew that I needed a new hobby, and a guy aat the sporting goods store recommended it. They took me in the back and handed me a bow to try out. I was so weak that I could only pull back 20lbs!

    I bought the Hoyt Ignite package, and I'm glad I did. This bow has taught me a lot.

    Ten months later and I'm still shooting every single day, at 65lbs now. I decked out my bow and I love it!
