Any suggestions for a quality compound package for a 9 year old left handed girl?

We sell a lot of elite ember packaged how's. Great bow that will grow with the kid. High quality asseccesories for the price. They come in several colors the kids and women like.

There are a ton of similar youth bows available now. I think every bow company has a youth bow with the same 10-12" DL range and draw weights that range 20# at each DL, getting progressively heavier as you increase the DL.

My biggest complaint about these bows has always been the soft mushy back wall. Kids have a tendency to pull hard into the back wall, and with a soft wall, they would often overdraw. The Elite Ember eliminates that with a draw stop. If I was in the market for a new youth bow, it would be the Ember.

I recommend the elite ember also. Bought my daughter one a few weeks back. It's a great bow. As mentioned above the draw stops make the biggest difference.

Honestly, I bought compounds for all three of my boys when they were little. What a pain trying to keep them sized right along the way. And they just never shot them much either. If I were to do it all over again, I'd buy a Mathews Genesis. Let them shoot that until old enough to buy something that could be used for several years with purchase of extra mods or it has a good rotating mod system.

Mission craze. However xman's comment about the back wall is definitely accurate. My kids have shot the craze plenty well enough for it to not be a concern though.

Mission craze, or menace for even less. Will get your kid to high school. Then if they want a step up maybe the Hoyt power max. Then if they are still with it a real bow.
