Estobar is one of the worst units in Berwick Saga.
His endgame potential is certainly incredible; he does, after all, learn Aim and the coveted Pursuit skill and, with his incredible bow skill, will eventually be able to use the powerful Pascannon without fear of backfiring. His good stat growths and decent promo gains mean that, by the end of the game, he will likely have competent stats. Additionally, he is very useful in Exile Island, as his increased vision in Fog of War allows him to reveal the location of several dangerous enemies immediately when he stands on the lighthouse. These enemies would otherwise be out of sight until close to the map's completion.
The issue is, this is all if you train him. He has got an incredibly poor start as a unit, comparable to the likes of Ruby, or Sherlock - his low base level prevents him from using any good Bows to compliment his high bow skill, and his base stats are some of the worst in the game for his join - he may have decent hit rates, but he's unlikely to deal any significant damage for a long time. Compared to the other archers, he is easily the worst one until he starts learning his endgame skills, which is a problem for him when competing for rare bows. With his lack of a mount, utility, or access to other powerful weapons (like crossbows or swords prepromotion), Estobar struggles to contribute when deployed.
Unlike the other bow users, Estobar uses knives as a secondary weapon. While this does grant access to the Bolt Knife and the Carnwennan (two very good weapons) and he deals much more damage than Czene or Sedy, Estobar's knife skill is horrible, with a low base and a low skill growth, severely limiting his effectiveness with them.
To summarize, Estobar has prospects, but they don't make trying to get over his awful start worthwhile.
