1. DIAMOND ATOMIC ($180, Mass 1.9lbs, ATA 24", Brace 6", DL 12-24", DW 6-29lbs)
-This is a true miniature compound bow, designed and build for the youth archer. It is very light, short, fast, and has a great degree of adjustments. The Artic package that it comes with is also excellent. It includes: a 3-pin TruGlo Apex sight, Hostage XL arrow rest, 2-piece quiver, and 3 carbon arrows. I removed and saved the quiver for later to save weight. I removed all but 1 of the sight pins initially, then added them back as needed. (I later upgraded to a TruGlo Carbon XS 4 pin sight for my older son - $30 - fantastic sight!) Rest is simple and works perfectly - cock vane down. Arrows are good quality, but when I ran out, I replaced them with Beman ICS Hunter Jr arrows ($48 for 12 fletched arrows - awesome). I also removed the brass nock point and replaced with a small string D-loop, however, the brass nock point with a release on the string worked just as well. Finally, I bought a release aid for each child: Tru-Ball Shooter youth release ($39) and Scott Youth Hero Relase ($39) - get with buckles if available for consistent placement and length. BOW SET-UPS: 6.5 year old (50 lbs) set-up: DW 15.6lbs, DL 16.6". 4 year oid set-up: DW 8.2lbs, DL 13.5".
2. MATHEWS MINI-GENESIS: ($205, Mass 2lbs, ATA 29.5", Brace 6-1/8", DL 14-25", DW 6-12lbs)
This a well build and great little bow. It would likely work great for teaching a group of youth archers because it has a continuous draw length cam and does not need to be adjusted for each archer. Also, it can be shot without a release. It's draw cycle and feel, is similar to a recurve in that it pulls smoothly, and the draw weight progressively increases until released. I found for a individual, though, the lack of a defined stopping position (let-off or back wall) leads to difficulty in a beginners understanding the concept of and learning to use an anchor point and peep sight. This did not work well for us, and we save it for visiting guests of all sizes that would like to try archery.
3. MISSION CRAZE II ($319, $400 w kit, Mass 3.4lbs, ATA 28", Brace: 7.25", DL 19-30, DW 13-70)
Another great bow, but a miscalculation on my point. My oldest son was shooting a 16.5" draw length witha ⅝" D-loop at 15.5 lbs. He wants to get ready for hunting and wanted a "bigger camo bow like dads." I thought this work and would allow him to grow into it, and I would give his bow to my younger son. I set the draw weight the same. I then set the bow on its shortest setting (19"), twisted the string to get 18" draw length, and did not use a D-loop. The total draw length was close: 18" vs 17-⅛" (16.5 + ⅝"), and the bow would be "only" 1.5 lbs heavier. This was a disaster! His shooting fell apart in an instant. The ⅞" draw length change made it impossible for him to anchor consistently, and the increase in weight made him unable to aim accurately and to hold the bow up long enough to practice. In addition, the slight increase in brace height (Atomic 6" vs Craze 7.25") made a significant difference in velocity and therefore trajectory and range. He lost interest and gave up! I gave him a month to rest, and when he showed interest again, I reset his old bow and returned it to him. Instantly, he was shooting and hitting well again. I ended up getting another Diamond Atomic for my younger son, and we all enjoy shooting together. My 6.5 yr old son can hit a deer target well to 30-40 yds and my 4 yr old do the same to 20 yds. Lots of fun, and keeps them and me off the couch. My eldest occasionally plays with the Mission Craze II, but it will likely be another year before he can shoot it. The Mission Craze II is essentially a very well build bow, but is scaled down full size bow, which makes it unnecessarily bulky and heavy, and better for "teen-sized" shooters. In contrast, the Diamond Atomic is small bow built for the youth archer from the ground up.
