Default Best compound for a 13 year old boy?

My nephew is looking to buy his first hunting bow that can grow with him. Heís easily pulling back and shooting a 20lbs recurve right now. He has also started lifting weights this year so yea putting on some muscle.

What does the green screen suggest? Heís saving his own money, so we canít go crazy, but his uncle might help out.

I would look at the Elite Ember, very adjustable to grow with the young man.

I have a Mission Riot RH I could sell. I used for 8 years. Killed several deer with it. Its adjustable DL from 19-31Ē and DW from 15-70lbs. Was my first bow and I upgraded to a Mathews VXR last year. This bow will definitely grow with your son.
