They're calling it the NXT because "The I Want to Shoot the Same Bow as Mom and Dad Model" is too long.

Once a kid gets bitten by the archery bug, they're hooked for life. That's why it's important to ensure that their first experiences behind the string are fun, simple and successful. It can't be too hard to draw or hold, and it must be capable of growing with the child. Towards this end, Prime Archery has just introduced the NXT, a compound bow specifically built for youth shooters.

The bow makes it extremely easy to adjust draw weight from 15 to 45 lbs. The draw range can be altered from 19" to 26" in 1/2" increments without the use of a bow press, so wild growth spurts or steady increases in strength are no problem. Prime’s EZ Grip training tool is included with every NXT, too.

Weighing in at an amazingly lightweight 2.8 pounds, the Centec NXT has a thinner grip designed to accommodate smaller hands. Speaking of that grip, the NXT features Prime’s Center Grip riser design, which results in a bow that’s simple to aim, even for the most inexperienced shooters. It’s constructed with aluminum limb pockets, has a machined aluminum riser, and doesn’t utilize any plastic in the areas where it counts. It’s a bow that will be durable and is designed for youth shooters to grow alongside with.

There is nothing more frustrating to a kid when the arrow doesn’t stick into the target. Not only does it aim well, the Centec NXT also launches arrows at an amazing speed, even at a low poundage. This high quality manufactured bow provides the performance needed to make a kid's first experience a great one. Visit for more!
