My 11-year old son has been hunting grouse in our area for 2 years now, and he has decided he wants to buy a new compound bow, (he is currently shooting a 28-lb recurve). We went to town and looked at compound bows suitable for youth at 2 local stores. Both offered bows that had adjustable draw lengths and draw weights. 2 emerged as apparently viable options: the Barnett Vortex and the Diamond Cutting Edge. The DCE seemed to have more room to grow, and a better arrow rest (whisker biscuit). Also, it was on sale, and with a loan from Dad, affordable. The BV was affordable as well. My son wants to buy locally if possible. He has a 22" draw length, and was able to pull a DCE set at 35lbs smoothly. Dad only has experience with recurves. Son has heart set on compound. Any thoughts?
--By the way, his first game animal ever was a Ruff he drilled neatly through the noggin.
