All adjustments can be made using only an Allen wrench with no need for a bow press.

To calculate your draw length, measure your wingspan from the tip of your fingers on one hand to the tip of the fingers on the other. Divide it by 2.5 and it will roughly give you what your draw length is. It will vary a bit depending on where and how you anchor the bow, but that will get you close.
Remember that as you decrease the draw length of the Bear Cruzer G2, the draw weight decreases as well. So this means that if you’re a 24” inch draw length archer and you think you can shoot this bow at 70 lbs. that is not gonna happen. The highest weight you’re gonna get is at around 62 lbs.

Value For Money

Another advantage for the G2 is its double yolk design which makes it easy for cam lean adjustment. Just add or remove a twist on one side.
Some people think that a stabilizer is important but some think it’s not an absolute necessity, and more of a personal preference. Some think it dampens sound and vibration but in reality, they don’t really do a whole lot.
It might do a little but you may not even really feel it. A lot of times the stabilizer comes in helpful or handy if it’s adding weight to help the archer hold the bow steady.
The Bear Cruzer G2 does come with a stabilizer and a handy wrist sling. If you’re the type who doesn’t think a stabilizer is a necessity, you have the option not to install it. But it does look good and adds to the overall appeal of the bow.

It has enough power to take down big game animals. If you do decide to use it as your main hunting bow, you’ve made a good decision.
Its advanced grip design eliminates hand torque for enhanced accuracy making. This only means once you’ve set your sight on a target, it’s almost impossible not to hit it. Pair it with a fixed blade broadheads to get better penetration.
