Default RE: bowfishing

I'd just get a cheap compound. You said 25 lbs. possibliy? I would really try to get alittle more then 25. At 25 lbs. you really don't get much water penetration, let alone fish penetration. Last year my 5 year old son was shooting 17 to 20 lbs and the tips would take off a scale or make a mark on the fish but it wasn't enough. The minimun I would go is 30 lbs. but getting up to 40 would be good!

Its really fun!

Good Luck!
