Youth Bow

Reply
 
So my daughter asked me for a bow this year. Many years ago I hunted with an Alpine bow but Im sure technology has changed since then. Long story sort, Im looking for some advice on what type of bow should I get for my daughter. So she only 11 years old but big for her age (5-2) and growing every stinking day. She has good upper body strength. Any suggestion
Thanks in advice.

Youth Bow
Diamond by Bowtech makes a youth bow that is outstanding.I purchased one for my son a couple years back and it has been excellent.

It adjusts from a short youth drawlength to 29.5' and up to 65lbs draw weight without a bow press or new cams.

If taken care of it will laster her into adulthood.

I think the bow is around $300 rigged out at Bass Pro

Ditto on the bowtech. razor's edge I think it's called. Great bow. It can work for her now and later. My son has the model that came out before that one called 'edge'. It's set at 32# draw. That's 2# more than legal hunting weight. He got a new bow now, but didn't really need to. He could have kept shooting the edge. To shoot longer than a 29 inch draw you have to upgrade the limbs for $100. If you got a used set of right hand golf clubs I bet he'd trade you.

I'm privileged to be able to access almost every bow adult and youth. My favorite youth bow by far is the Mission Craze. Adjustable from 15 to 70 lbs and from 19' to 30'. So smooth and quiet. Draw weight goes up proportional with draw length. That's what my daughter has. I will use it for turkey season it shoots that good and smooth. My opinion but I get to fool with a hundred or more bows a year.

The new Diamond Bow for youth is the Diamond Infinite Edge. Adjustable from 5 to 70 lbs and 13' to 30' draw with an IBO speed of 310fps. My son loves his and it will grow with him until he is an adult.
