    My son is a small 9 year old. He has been shooting league the last three weeks and is putting them all in the target shooting instinctive no sites. the bow he is using is a genesis league bow and it is maxed out. My question is this I have looked at bows for him and have it down to three. First the Hoyt ignite second diamond infinite edge and third mission craze. What are your likes and dislikes about these and your recomendations. i shoot a z7 and swore my son would only shoot Mathews but I am thinking the Hoyt or diamond may look a bit nicer but have not had a chance to looke at the craze yet.

    All of the three mentioned are nice bows.  I’m partial to the Craze due to familiarity and the fact that I’ve never seen an issue with one.  It’s adjustable in one-inch draw length increments, has 80% letoff, and is very quiet.  I’m sure it will go low enough to fit him in weight and if he’s about 46″ tall the length will be close enough at the lowest setting.

    well took my son to shoot bows today and he shot the mission craze, mission riot, hoyt ignite and diamond infinite edge.  The first two he shot were the hoyt and diamond and after about 50 arows he says dad put back the diamond I also shot both and agreed.  he then added the mission craze and shot both the craze and hoyt and after two arrows with the craze he says nope dont like this so I shot the craze and nope it was terrible it had a ton of hand shock.  He then shot the riot with the hoyt and he says to me dad what do you think.  I shot both and felt it was a tie between the two.  I told him shoot them and close your eyes when you shoot I will tell you when you are good to shoot and when to fire.  So he does and he says I like them both buy I think I like the hoyt a bit more is that ok.  He then followed it up with are you mad I know you are a mathews guy.  I told him let the bow pick  you and pick the one that feels the best and I also thought to myself thank goodness it is 100 dollars less.  So now it is time to shop for our rest, site and release.

    A TON of hand shock on a craze at low poundage and short draw? I don’t even know what to say, other than, get that bow set up for your son!

    I’m glad you got to spend the time to let your son pick out the one he liked the best.  I’m sure its a good choice.  Yeah, and its a benefit that it costs a little less!

    And like the above post,  having someone say that the Craze has a lot of handshock is the last thing that would come to mind with that bow.  That is puzzling.
