The other day I was with my daughter and had 20 minutes to burn so I stopped in a local bow shop I had never been in before. You might have thought they were giving away free candy when she got so excited when she saw the pink bow hanging on the wall.
I don't think she ever realized there were pink bows out there. She asked for one and the guy behind the counter said they offer lessons. She asked if she could start taking lessons. Good bye swimming, hello archery.
To make a long story short, I value the opinion and knowledge of the people on this sight so I am asking for input on a half decent compound bow for my 6 year old daughter. As it stands right now she just wants to target shoot and it has to be pink and right handed. Trying to keep it under $100 so in case she doesn't love it, I'm not throwing money out the window. Please let me know if you can recommend one or if you even have one you're will to sell.
I will take whatever quality time I can get and the joy of introducing and teach her about something I am passionate about.
And no let-off, so no setting of DL required; only one arrow allowed in the program and you can get ‘em at Walmart, so you’re pretty much guaranteed to always have access to as many as you need.
Those Genesis arrows are 1820s, by the way; they spine at about #53, so I’m planning to work up a load for each of my bows, just so I’ll never get stranded high and dry.... sorta like how everyone used to give the advice to buy a .270 or an ‘06 so you could buy ammo at any hardware store or gas station.
My little guy is still shooting this bow 7 years later, though I think there might be a new one under the tree this year...
You won't get one for $100, but she'll be able to use it to shoot and even hunt for many years. And they do come in pink, although my daughter fortunately wanted hers in camo :)
