Son needs a compound bow
« on: November 14, 2019, 11:36:23 AM »
Looking for ideas...my son who is 10 1/2 and fairly big and strong for his age (basically 5' 101#) needs a new bow. He has been using a Goblin (basic bow) for a few years. I am not a bow hunter...but his is pretty good with the one he has. Not looking to spend crazy money want a more legitimate bow for him to target practice with as we are on acreage. Any suggestions would be helpful. If you happen to have a used one that would fir him and are relatively near me (Snohomish County area) I would purchase one used as well.
Thanks for the help,
Mike

Really a diamond edge sbe-1 is a fine bow for any youth. Its adjustable from like 23-31, 7# to 70# and tunes nicely. Once hes pulling 60_70 pounds comfortably let him drop some real cash on a flagship bow. His strength will grow so fast any flagship bow he gets now will be to week in a few years.

Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.


A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

I bought a Hoyt Ignite a few years back for my son's and it's a great beginner bow with a ton of adjustment for a fair price.

Im in almost the exact same situation as the OP. I heard good things about the ignite as well. Are you in 4H archery meeting in Monroe?

My new shooting buddy has a Mission Craze and it's adjustable up to hunting weight, so he can increase the weight over time as his strength increases.
