I picked one up this Spring. Complete package for $350 I couldnt pass up. Havent hunted with it yet but practicing it feels great. Surprisingly quiet without strings silencers and its nice the draw and weight are easily changeable without a press. And the bow is very very light compared to many I tried.

Ive also been told the Legion, which is one step up, is also a nice bow; although I havent fired one. Bare bow is $400 though.

im pretty sure the encounter is basically the bear charge. which i have. bear has stepped up there game. they have awesome bows and IMO are one of the best companies around now. i love there grips and like OhioNovice said the weight is very easy to adjust. they have fast and forgiving bow. many bows that are said to shoot 350, are under a 7" inch brace height. but many of bears top bows have over a 7" brace height, which is nice. they have nice finishes on them and aren't very noisy.

Dont know how old your son is ? I started my son with the bear Apprentice at age 8 and it is a great bow for the money.
