    Default Rear Stab or Vbar for kids?

    Any thoughts on putting a Rear side bar or v bars on kids bows. I'm talking about 12 years old. Shooting high 290's from 20 yards. Shooting back tension release.

    My concern is getting too much weight on the bow to be able to aim it effectively.

    Any benefit you think?

    I have seen youth with side bars and vbars at indoor nationals.

    Im sure there coachs felt they need the added weight on the backside.

    I think it would be just like adults. Each one would different.

    I certianly think I would just use a side bar only first to offset the sight bar.

    I see no reason not to use one. Just because you have it on there doesn't mean you have to load it up with weight. Just use a few ounces at first and see what happens. Once the kid gets used to it, you may be able to add a little more.

    One thing is for sure, you never know until you try.
    Artificial intelligence will never beat natural stupidity.

    The greatest thing I had accomplished in my life was serving my country, until I became a dad.
