FIRESHOT reviews

The amazing thing about archery is that almost anyone at any age can start practicing the sport. However, for those who want to get their young children into the sport, Hoyt has created the perfect companion, the Fireshot.

Things to Consider Before Buying

Young archers can begin to learn the fundamentals of archery and craft their skills with the help of a bow like the Hoyt Fireshot. Starting with the cams, the Versaflex system designed for young archers features an impressive 18 to 28-inch adjustment in draw length, so that young archers can change the way that the bow shoots as they grow and gain more experience. The draw weight of the bow can also be adjusted from 19-51 pounds, so that archers can start out with little resistance and then increase the shooting weight as necessary when they get more comfortable with the bow. The weight of only 3 pounds means that for even the smallest and least experienced archers, the Fireshot will be just the right weight to feel balanced and sturdy in their hands. Hoyt’s dedication to producing high quality bows that are meant to last is clear with this bow, and at such a low-price tag it is a marvel that they are even making a profit on such a fantastic beginner package.

Who Should Buy it?

The target audience of the Fireshot is young and inexperienced archers. The lightweight design and small frame that was designed with children in mind allows them to use this bow without feeling burdened or uncomfortable. In a child’s formative years, a bow like the Fireshot is just what a young archer needs to fall in love with archery and will serve as their first steppingstone into the sport.

Who Shouldn’t Buy it?

Aside from its very clear marketing as a bow for young archers, there might be other archers who would find this bow effective. However, the small size and slow shooting speeds are not meant for fully-grown archers and will not prove to be effective outside of figuring out the basic fundamentals of shooting a bow. Even a young teen archer may want to look for a bigger and more powerful bow that could be grown into, as opposed to picking the Fireshot with its design catered towards young and small children.


  •  The Fireshot has just the right size and power for a child to learn with
  • The adjustable cam system means that young archers can make the bow more powerful with time.
  • The price is incredibly affordable, considering the manufacturers high building standards and quality


  •  The bow can only be used by a very specific archer

Final thoughts 

For the youngest of archers, the Hoyt Fireshot is all the bow they need to get to the range and start shooting.

This bow is compact, easy to use and has a rubber back so it will not slip in the rain.

The Hoyt HCS Hammers is a good choice for a beginning shooter who wants to upgrade to a compound bow. Hoyt bows have the features of a smooth draw and feel more like a traditional bow. They offer a great combination of versatility, great value, accuracy and a high level of shooting feel. There are three versions of this bow available. There is the HCS Hammer, HCS Compound and the Hoyt FireShot.

The Hoyt Firing Solutions Compound Bow was introduced and produced by the HCS Company, a division of Hoyt. It is manufactured by the American Industry, a division of the Bushmaster Manufacturing Corporation. The HCS Hammer and the Hoyt FireShot has comparable features. Both offer a lightweight, smooth draw and powerful response.
