    kids bow

    I'm after a compound bow for my 11 year old boy.

    I don't know much about them, but I guess I'd need some arrows and some sort of arm protection for him too. Any of you got anything your kids have grown out of?0

    I'll talk to my boy. He's 18 and has outgrown his PSE Chaos. It has adjustable draw length and draw weight. Got him into it when he was 9 or so so it would help your fella out since it's got a lot of adjustability. I'll have to see if he's ready to sell. PM me and I'm happy to talk about bows if you're new to it all.

    You won't need arm protection. Technique is key so your little guy doesn't torque the bow. Set it low as you can to start. That PSE would be a good buy

Size:  7.26 MBI have a Genesis which accomodates just about any length of pull and is weight adjustable.
    Perfect entry level but pricier than the plastic ‘warehouse’ ) type. No idea what they’re going for nowadays but PM me if interested.

    Looks like the Genesis are about $450 new so I guess $250 with quiver and arrows would be reasonable...
