Default Kids bows?

I am thinking of getting my 9 year old son a "real" bow.
What are some are good, complete starter setups out there? I would like one with lots of adjustment both in DL and DW. Any help would be great.

I bought my daughter a nuclear ice last year and it has a lot of range in both areas you asked for and the price is not bad. Think it maxxes out at 29lbs.

I bought the boys a Mathews Genesis years ago and my nephew has used it and now my daughter is using it. It is great as no draw length to change when another person wants to try it out, and they are not very expensive to have or anyone (young friend that comes over) wanting to try out archery.

Both my kids have the diamond razor edge. Comes in a 15 to 29# and 30 to 60#. I have one of each, both great bows. If you get the lower weight model, you can send it to bowtech and get the 30 to 60 limbs for a charge of about $50. Nuclear ice is a good bow, but I think a 9 year old would out grow it in a year or two.

I have to agree I bought my 13 Year old son a Diamond razor edge and I hsve not ever regreted it at all. The great thng about it is that it will grow with him . Not that he will outgrow it cause its is fully adjustable and can be modified to an adult bow. I would recomend this bow to anyone that asked .

Look at the Diamond Nuclear Ice, Diamond Razor Edge or PSE Chaos. I've worked an almost ever kids bow and these are the best in my opinion.
