    Default Good bow for 13 year old? pic.

    I am trying to find a good bow for my brother .
    He is currently shooting 36 lbs.
    But he could do 40 easily. so i think i am going to pass his bow to a younger brother and get him a new one.

    My question is
    anyone ever have experience with the line of bows WhisperCreek Archery?

    One thing i extremely like about them is their adjust abilities

    here is some specs and a picture




    Parallel Limbs
    Adjustable draw length and draw weight without bow press

    Kit Includes:

    - Quiver
    - Arm Guard
    - Fiber Optic Sight
    - Hyper Light Pro Rest

    Specifications:

    - Brace Height: Approx. 6"
    - Axle to Axle: Approx. 31"
    - Draw Weight: 20 - 50 lbs.
    - Draw Length: 16 - 27" Half-Inch Incr.
    - Mass Weight: 2.8 lbs.
    - String Length: 55 1/2"
    - Harness Length: 32 1/2"





    I can get the whole kit for under $250 bucks shipped.
    Whenever he outgrows it it will just be readjusted passed down the line.

    do you think this will work.?
    i just don't know the quality of these bow it seems like they are way lower in price then similar bows
    I don't think it will be used for tournaments since we don't have any locally .
    just something to build them muscles up with before getting a heavy duty bow

    hey man that looks like a great bow try and read up on it, see if they're reviews about it.
    now i don't know what your budget is but i know that bear archery makes some quality bows and there's this one ive seen before called the young gun and it adjusts 14-27 inch draw length and 40-50 pound weight. i seen it on the bear archery site for $330 you might wanna check that out if ya got time.

    Default get what you pay for

    Ever heard the saying you get what you paid for? While 250 bucks sounds like a steal.. In comparison to what you have listed against one of the top 3 bow manufacturers, you would be spending 12-1400 for a set up.. Their is a reason why their in the top 3 or say 2.. If your kid is really into archey and you have a strong indication that he/she will stick with it.. get him a high quality bow. if its something just to tinker with or a sudden urge to have a new hobby, then go the lesser route. You can check e-bay or craigslist and find brand new in the box 1-2 year old bows for 1/3 the cost of a new one. You wont get the warranty this way, but then again I have been shooting the same bows for 20 years and never had to have one fixed. (knock on wood) feel free to PM me if you need more specifics..

    after some recommendations from people i went ahead and ordererd the Diomend Rage Bow two days ago.
    it cost me under 300 bucks shipped from site below.
    I orderd with no accessories becuase i already have them so that save me a littal bit.
    I just have to wait till i get it know.

    one thing that surprised me is how light the bow is super light
    after i accessories it it gained some wait . but still it was the lightest bow i ever held.
    well what can i say my brother loves it it came in at 60 lbs we dropped it to 41. we will be tuning it today a bit
