Re: Bow for youth hunter
You can't go wrong with a name brand youth bow. They are the only bows in any line that hold their value, and resale on the used market is easy. With that said, given the fact that your boy is 14, he will grow and develop strength quickly over the next 2-4 years. Look at the following bows that allow easy change in drawlength (with allen screw changes) and easy increased in poundage: Hoyt Ignite, Mission Craze, PSE Stinger X, or the Diamond Core. None will break the bank, but if you buy new, you better figure on $500 by the time you by arrows, release, and in some cases rest and site and stabilizer. Best time to shop for a used one is beginning now- once people start buying bigger bows, the youth ones go on sale quickly.
