Default Youth Bows

Looking to get a bow for my 10 year old son and was wondering what bow would people recommend. I have been looking at a Mission Craze. Want a bow that will grow with him for at least 5-7 years.

Craze is nice so is the Diamond Infinite Edge. Either bow could last your son into adulthood if need be.

Yes, check out the youth Diamond line. Diamond has been making a good line of youth bows that have a broad range of adjustments that can be changed as the individual grows. Diamond is made by Bowtech. HD.

the diamond infinite edge is a great bow for a young archer. the kids will grow and the bow is adjustable into adulthood. draw weight is 5-70 pounds. draw length is 13-30 inches. and make no bones about it.this bow performs at like 310fps. also has a great price point at 349.99-399.99 ready to shoot package

They are both great bows. My wife shoots a Diamond and its an incredible bow. The kid I hunt with has a Mission and he has killed more deer with that bow than a lot of the older guys I know.

Might also look at the Darton Ranger. Quite a bit of adjustment and a retail price of $210 or so. Quite a bargain really.

I'm not too sure if they still make it but the Browning Micro-Adrenaline was a pretty great youth bow.

I have purchased several youth bows over the last few years and after doing a bunch of research and letting the kids try the bows the Diamonds have been my bow of choice for them ever since. Will actually but purchasing another one this season too.
