Standard D-shaped bows with neutral risers are simply more stable than radical geometries. No wonder Vegas shooters use D bows. While the advantages of beyond parallel limbs are obvious for hunters shooting high performance, young shooters need consistency, and the D shaped bow delivers plenty of it!
|If it ain't broke, don't fix it. The Alpine Micro Elite wrote the rulebook on developing quality short-draw bows. Compared to the competition, there are no plastic components found here. Alpine Archery takes no short cuts. Both the limb pockets and cams are machined from 6061 aluminum. The Micro features a full 7 inches of draw length adjustment and peak weights that range from 30 to 40 pounds. Quality and performance on this little bow are paramount even for the young, at an amazing 280 fps IBO.
The Alpine Micro Elite has a wide range of application, fitting shooters from roughly 4'3" up to 5'9" (see fitment chart). Use the bow as a starter bow for beginners, a great intermediate ladies bow, or crank it up over 40# for some big game hunting. This little bow has plenty of mojo in reserve. You won't be disappointed at how this bow performs, even at lower draw weights and shorter draw lengths. This Alpine Micro Elite is a shooter!
Best of all, you can adjust the Alpine Micro Elite without the need for a bow press or specialized equipment. Changing the draw length on the Micro Elite is super easy. Remove two simple screws, slide the module to a new position, and put the screws back in. So as your young shooter sprouts-up, the Micro Elite can grow to match. Your young shooter will get many years of fun before outgrowing the Micro Elite.
We've loaded this great bow up with everything: rest, sight, arrows, stabilizer, bow case, wrist sling, mechanical release and MUCH MORE. But don't expect the box to be full of loose parts and assembly instructions, because this awesome rig comes ready for action the moment you unpack it from the case. Our pro-shop does all the work in-advance. So this awesome bowhunting rig arrives 100% ready to shoot. Scroll down for all the details.
|Adjustable Twin Cam
When it comes to simplicity it doesn't get much better than the Twin Cam system. Tried and true, the Vortex delivers an incredibly smooth draw stroke and outstanding arrow speeds with its highly adjustable and forgiving cam system.
|Adult Bow Features!
We all remember the days when youth bows meant thin little limbs and a rubber grip. With the Alpine Mini your young shooter won't feel short-changed. This bow is the real McCoy! All the features of an adult compound bow, down-sized for younger shooters.

When you order your bow package, please select the style and size of peep sight you prefer. You may choose from the popular TRIO-Style peep sight (medium/large) or a TUBE-Style peep (large). Standard install height is 13 cm above the nocking point, but you may choose a HIGH (15 cm) or LOW (11 cm) alignment to accommodate special conditions. See help section below for additional details.
|YOUR PRACTICE TIPS
6 Steel Practice Tips
Perfectly matched to the diameter of your arrows, 6 steel screw-in practice points are included and already installed on the arrows with your bow system. Precision machined and weight accurate to +/- 1 grain. Removes quickly for broadhead installation. Style may vary.
|BOW PACKAGE DETAILS: SERVICES PERFORMED|
Every bow package is hand-assembled at our Pro-Shop by a qualified archery professional. No details are overlooked. The peep sight is served in place, the nock or loop set is installed, the draw length and weight is set to your specifications, all hardware is carefully installed and properly adjusted, and your arrows are custom built to suit your particular bow and settings. The string gets waxed, axles lubricated, and the bow is given a thorough inspection - top to bottom - for any flaws in manufacturing. If the bow and related gear aren't up to standards, they don't leave our shop!
We actually test-shoot each bow. Every bow is paper tested by our staff shooters, to ensure that your arrows will fly like a laser beam when launched from your new bow. Adjustments are made as necessary until each arrow tears a clean "bullet-hole", indicating perfectly level and straight arrow flight for the best possible accuracy. We resolve any and all fletching clearance problems and align each arrow nock for a clean zero-contact launch. Be advised that paper-tuning results are only repeatable if you shoot with proper form (no torquing, trigger-jerking, improper grip pressures, etc.).
Each bow is tested at distance to ensure that arrows will group tightly. 3-Arrow groups are shot at 15, 25, & 35 yards and measured by our staff shooters. We use the 25/2 rule. If our staff shooters aren't grouping 3 arrows into a 2" circle at 25 yards with your new bowhunting package, then we retune until the 25/2 rule is met. While variances in individual shooting form makes exact pre-sighting impossible, we test shoot each bow and rough-set your top sight pin for a 20 yard shot. This gets your sight-pins in the "ball-park" so you won't have to start from scratch - possibly sending an arrow into an unforgiving neighbor's yard.
When you receive your new bow system, you will just need to make fine adjustments to the top pin, then finish-up by setting the remaining pins for the distances you prefer. And if you're new to the sport, or not so handy with tools and gadgetry ... don't worry. You'll also receive a copy of our booklet Getting Started with Your Compound Bow which offers detailed instructions on the sighting-in procedure as well as helpful maintenance and safety tips. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS BOOKLET THOROUGHLY BEFORE YOU BEGIN SHOOTING.
We chronograph each bow to ensure that the actual arrow velocity is within the expected range. You will receive a System Statistics report with your new Ready-to-Hunt™ Bow Package. This report will precisely detail the exact velocity of your arrows, grain weight and length of the arrows, recommended tip weights, the exact bow settings, and dozens of other specs related to your bow system. Keep this sheet for your reference. If you ever need additional arrows or want to make changes and adjustments on your bow, you'll have the original data for reference.
|PACKAGING AND SHIPPING
Each fully assembled bowhunting package is delivered - packed tightly in the bow case of your choice. Loose parts, like the release and broadheads, are all safely tucked inside too. Once full, the bow case is boxed and sealed for safe transport. Your bow system is then shipped, via FedEx Ground, to your home or business. A tracking number will be provided to you, so you'll know when to expect delivery. All packages are fully insured and require a signature at the point of delivery.
