Default Youth Bows

I have two boys ages 8 & 9, looking to get them started with a decent youth bow? Any suggetions with Matthews Misson line?? Parker, Browning???

They have been sharing a 20lb bear recurve for the past few years already.

I would like to get them each their own compound, maybe we could do some 3-d shoots later this spring/summer.

Thanks for any/all input!!

Check out the martin ultra lite tiger bows. Looks like a cool starter for youths, and the price is pretty good also.
I was thinking of buying one for my 7yr old this spring.

I have a browning in the classifieds i can do better on the price for the fact you guys are going to
use it,the only problem with buying new is their going to grow out of it,and they may not like it to start with,
that is why i bought used (off a buddy) and nowmy sonhas grown out of it. Not trying to push my bow
on you guys, it's just that i have been there done that.Now i am looking for another used bow as my son
has gone from a 24" draw to 26.6" since last year.

A friend of ours gave my 7 year old son a brand newPSE Spider youth bow. Lots of adjustment in both poundage and draw length. He loves it. I set it up with all the bells and whistles and he thinks he's the man. He should be good for a few years.

I think you should take a look at the diamond razor edge. Or find a used diamond edge,which is the same bow. It looks like a great starter bow for a kid.

Keep an eye on Barnett archery, they have a new youth bow coming out soon. It's supposed to be adjustable up to 45 pounds and cost less than $100.

You really can't find a better youth bow than the Diamond Razor Edge.

you cant beat the diamond edge. my 7 year old is shooting one. 18"-28"draw length adjustment, and you can get limbs for 20#-30, 30-40, or 40-50. a college age girl i know shot 2 deer with hers this year. i wasnt able to find something that adjustable for the price. gander mountain has them set up with sight, peep, rest and quiver for $239.
