Re: youth crossbow question
Youth choices are limited, unfortunately. There are some youth crossbows out there but their quality is not up to par with the general offerings.
For that reason, I have steering folks towards the new Darton Rebel135ss. Darton has been quietly making crossbows for a long time and have developed a loyal following. Darton makes many components for other crossbow manufacturers, which is a little known fact.
Darton crossbows are the easiest cocking compound crossbows that I have ever shot, which is a factor to consider when cocking is a issue. The Rebel is very short, fast enough, easy to cock, and will balance sweet with it's bullpup stock and forward trigger. it is a quality bow and Darton bows are pretty much bulletproof within the crossbow world.
Check it out on Dartons website.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
