3 Great Youth Bows

Choosing the right youth bow for your young aspiring archer is a big decision that has a large bearing on their future in the sport. Here are three great bows for kids that will set them up for success.

[caption id="attachment_5770" align="aligncenter" width="300"]Buying a Youth Bow Image via Facebook/Shoot Em Up Archery[/caption] A few years back I was in an archery pro shop looking for some new arrows when I overheard a conversation between the pro staffer and a customer. The woman had a very old and very used bow lying on the counter hoping the staff could tune it up for her child. She was going to be giving the bow as a gift she said. The man behind the counter gave the woman good advice when he said something to the effect of "I sure can tune this bow up. But ma'm, if you want my honest opinion if you give your kid this bow they will never want to shoot it." He then listed off a number over valid reasons why a kid couldn't, and wouldn't, shoot that bow. The woman had been faced with a dilemma. Save money with a garage sale bow, or buy a bow her kid could actually use. Her decision would ultimately hold a big bearing on her child's experience in archery. If you are thinking of purchasing a youth bow, here are three great options that will make their initial archery experience one they will enjoy.

Barnett Vortex Junior Youth

This dandy two-cam bow is manufactured with one goal in mind; adaptability. With draw weights ranging from a low 19 lbs, to a deer killing 45 lbs, this bow will adapt to wherever your child is now, and grow with them as they grow. Coming equipped with everything the young archer will need, all you have to do is break the packaging, easily adjust the draw weight and you'll be shooting in a matter of minutes.

Darton Ranger X Youth Bow

The Darton Ranger X youth bow offers similar adaptability of the Barnett. Draw weights range from 15 lbs. to 50 lbs. on this model, and the single-cam design makes adjustments a breeze. When compared with the Barnett, this Darton youth bow has greater versatility, but the let-off at full draw is less. Choices, choices, choices.

Bear Archery Titan Youth Bow

With a wide variety of draw weights, and bow lengths, Bear offers something for archers of all ages. The Bear Archery Titan youth bow has a draw weight of 20-29 lbs., with the draw weight getting heavier as the string goes further back, so it is a good option for kids 12 and up. If you decide to purchase the package, you'll get arrows, and armguard, finger tabs, and target so you'll be watching arrows fly in no time. By choosing the right youth bow for your young archer, you will make their most important shot, their initial shot, an enjoyable one. Getting a enjoyable first experience will have them flinging arrows for years to come.
