SereneLife SharpEye Review
It’s always surprising how beginner archers and hunters are willing to plunk down hundreds if not thousands for their first bow, tempted by the big brands and their sponsors. Even more puzzling is how few of them are aware of the many manufacturers currently offering high-quality compound bow packages at a fraction of the cost of those expensive models. Not to mention how well some entry-level bows compare with the high-end ones, and in some cases even surpass them for value for money and overall performance and durability.
It’s always a good idea to get informed on all the options before committing to a purchase such as that of a bow. And if you’re a beginner, you don’t want to break the bank just to find out archery is not really your thing, but at the same time you do need good gear to find out that it is. As always, we keep a close eye on the market to spot any great offer you don’t want to miss, and the package reviewed here, the SereneLife Compound Bow Kit is definitely one of them.

SereneLife is a small retailer for Pyle, a manufacturer selling a wide range of products from electronics to home improvement and outdoors equipment. While not a compound bow specialist, this company offers a solid archery product that we’ve considered worthy of a full review. The SereneLife Kit is a right-handed compound bow that comes with an impressive accessory package for archery and bow hunting. The kit includes 12 30″ carbon arrows, 4 string silencers, 1 5-pin optical bow sight, 1 brush arrow rest, 2 rubber dampers, 1 stabilizer, 1 arrow quiver, 1 peep sight, 1 D-loop, 1 wrist rope, 1 string wax, 1 release aid, 1 set of spare strings, and even includes a paper target. This bow kit has only been on the market for a little while, but has already proven very popular and one of the highest-rated from users of different experience levels.
Materials and design
The SereneLife bow is a solid bow, that has been designed specifically for hunting, but with its 7.4″ brace height it is a great bow for target practice as well. The materials used for manufacturing the bow are of surprisingly quality for its this price range. The riser has an ergonomic design to facilitate shooting and is made out of high-intensity aluminum alloy, while the cams are of fully machined aluminum with no plastic unlike other entry-level products. The bow features robust limbs of hard-wearing fiber glass limbs, and heavy duty all-weather strings, although the bowstring looks cheaply made. Overall, the whole product looks and feels durable and its materials are comparable to those on more expensive premium models. However it’s only available for right-hand shooters and only in one finish (camo).
What impresses us of entry-level compound bow packages such as the SereneLife is the flexibility. With a draw length of 23.5″-30.5″, and a draw weight from of 30-70lbs, this bow can be adjusted to be used by archers of all ages and body frames, including teenagers and kids. Therefore it’s a great first time buy, and will likely prove a great bow for beginners to grow into before moving on to more professional models.
The SereneLife bow can shoot arrows at a speed of up to 320 fps, unlike many of the slow starter bows priced similarly. It’s also easy to shoot and beginner-friendly due to its 75% let-off and 7.4″ brace height. Due to its ergonomic riser design and the vibration-suppressing components, the SereneLife can shoot very accurately and with little or no shock.
The SereneLife exerts a lot of kinetic energy that makes the arrows fly fast enough to take down virtually any size game in North America. It’s also very easy to carry as it weighs only 3.9lbs and it’s not particularly noisy, which is great when you want to keep it stealthy while getting close enough to the pray to fire your arrow.
This bow has exactly the same performance characteristics and measurements of the Atropos-M125, but it comes with a lot more accessories than the Atropos. Besides the string silencers, peep sight, also featured in the Atropos-125 kit, the SereneLife also includes 12 30″ carbon arrows, brush arrow rest, stabilizer, 5-pin bow sight, wrist rope, string wax, release aid, spare strings and quiver. All the accessories are decent (except the quiver which will need replacing as it has been reported to make the arrows hit the rest, and thus bend). The kit also backed by a 1-year warranty for your peace of mind.
Pros and Cons
SereneLife Compound Bow Review: Conclusion and Rating
The SereneLife bow is an outstanding entry-level bow package that has incredible value for money and flexibility. We recommend it as a first time buy for the beginner archer or as a gift for a teenager that can use it to practice archery before moving onto higher-end models. It can also be an excellent choice for the wanna-be hunter as this is a fast, accurate and stealthy weapon that won’t disappoint in the fields and as a survivalist’s tool.
