Old Mossy Horns
Is there a Recurve bow that would be suitable for a kid. Something with a good riser that you can change the limbs and increase poundage as the kid grows and gets stronger?
can you? possibly
He's 13 and stands about 5'8" or 5'9" and is plenty big. However, he doesn't have the arm strength that I think he should have at this age.No.
Your best bet would be to purchase a bow like in this link in lightweight limbs. Don't overbow your kid. My draw length, at just under 6' tall, is 27" on traditional bows.
How old is your oldest? How tall is he?
Like the guys said, "NO". String length will define brace height. Proper brace height is important to bow tune.
I second that. Bud B. linked me to some Arne Moe YouTube videos that were excellent, along with a great bit by The Push about traditional bows and archery:If you want free training (and TV time with your son) Youtube is your friend. Jimmy Blackmon and Arne Moe are two outstanding sources for form training. If you're more of a DVD kinda guy, pick up the series, "Masters of the Barebow". Tips and instruction from some of the finest traditional archers in the country..
