  Ok guys, it's been many year since I used a bow and that was a recurve. Question is which bow would be good for my soon to be 11 year old grand son. He is now shooting a compound bow with a 25# draw. He has shot a friends bow with a 35 # draw and he likes it. We are going out shopping tomorrow the 6th. Price is not a big concern but I must keep in mind this is a bow he may likely be shooting only until he outgrows it so, I can't see spending high $$$ for a bow he will only be shooting for two years at most. He has a 26# draw not that that will matter for the question of which bow to purchase. Thanks in advance, GDL.

I got my just turned 15 year old girls Xpedition SS Explorers. 25" 55# that are turned down to 40# and 38#. This is an adult bow that they will grow in to and draw length can easily be changed with change out modules... no press needed. They had kids bows... this was the way to go for us. Ed F

My son shoots a infinity diamond, 10-70lb draw. Got it for him around 10, he's 16 now and pulling close to #60. $350.
I check what my daughter is shooting but same thing, bow grows with her. $400 high tech tech archery.

  I walked into Hitech archery this afternoon and almost fell over. Sue Ann was my daughters baby sitter when she was 1-3 years old. I knew her name was Sue but never gave it a thought. We were short on time so we are going back in the morning to get him all set up. Small world.
