There are plenty of brands out there, which one's do you prefer and why? I prefer to use Genesis bows for kids from 6yrs old to young adult. I have taught archery to Cub and Boy Scouts for 2 years now. I volunteer my time for one week in the summer to educate youngsters on safety, different types of bows, arrows, and a bit of history behind the bows that they will be using. The Genesis Compound bows are easily maintained and utilized by the kids. Genesis bows aren't that expensive when you consider they (kids) won't grow out of them in just a year or two like a pair of shoes.
