Looking for a few suggestions on sight, rest, release, arrows, etc for my son's new bow. He is 9 and has been shooting for the last 2 years with one of those Bear III cheap bows. He has been asking for a "Real" bow he can shoot and eventually hunt with for the last year. We decided on a a Mission Craze for his Christmas gift, but have told him he can use gift cards and his own money to get it setup. We will take it to a bow shop sometime in the next week or 2 to get setup. Help me with a few questions please.

1)What are some recommendations for decent sight for a youth to really start with? (single pin, or 3 pin) Not sure which way to go because I didn't start shooting a bow until age 18 and the bow I started with had 3 old metal pins on the sight.

2) Which rest? I'm leaning towards a whisker biscuit to start off with, but wanted some suggestions

3) Smaller youth release suggestions?

4) Which arrows?

Thanks Coach

Misson Craze good choice my grandson been shooting on for couple years now.

A Truglo sight would be good for couple more years, get a 3 pin because he not pulling must poundage and will need those other two pins.

Trueglo and Scott makes a pretty good release for about $25.

Nothing wrong with a WB for a youth for sure.

You can get some youth 500's to shoot.

Glad he is still interested in archery.

Scott makes a very good youth release

Agree with what the others have said for everything else.


lf the saying "Liar, Liar your pants on fire" were true
Mainstream news might be fun to watch
