    Anyone have one?
    Anyone got any info if one is better than another?

    Want to set my 6 (soon to be 7 year old) up for next season
    Christmas present.

    We're in a blind, so traditional or compound bows aren't useful.
    Thanks for any info!

    I bought an Excalibur Cub and have to say that it is very light in weight deadly accurate and relatively inexpensive compared to other Excaliburs,, I did add to the buttstock for me to use it Because I bought it for me. If you put on a high performance sting on them they shoot over 300 fps with a 350 grain arrow and kill just like the big ones...

    This will be my son's third year shooting a Parker Challenger. It has been a great crossbow for him. Parker just released a Challenger II that you may want to check out as well. Wicked Ridge also has a nice youth model that is comparable (or at least they did when we bought ours). I hope this helps.

    Parker Challenger and a Caldwell field pod has been a great combo for my kids.

    I would recommend the Crosman Sniper 370 for youth or smaller framed individuals. The nice thing about this crossbow is the adjustable stock which can grow with the kids.
