PSE® Archery Razorback or Razorback Jr. Recurve Bow for Youth
Best boy b-day gift ever!
Purchased this for my 8 year old son's birthday and he LOVES it! It's a great size and perfect pull weight for my little guy. The only things we added were an arrow rest, knock bead and some nice wooden arrows and he was in business. He LOVES to practice and is getting better every day. It's a joy to watch his progress!

Great Recurve Bow
I got my Razorback Recurve bow March of 2011 and it still shoots amazingly! All I've had to do to it so far is wax the string a couple times to keep it in good shape but other than that it's been very good. This was my first bow and I'm glad it was!
However, I do reccomend you put some sort of shelf on it because I didn't and I scratched it up a little.
I have the 30 lb. bow and my full draw is 30 inches and it works great! I mainly shoot for fun but sometimes I'll go out and hunt some rabbit or squirell! I highly reccoment the Razorback Recurve Bow!

Fun and lightweight
The Razorback is a really nice bow. What I really like about it is its extremly lightweight. I have several recurves and this is the lightest one. I also love that you can assemble it without any tools. My other bows you need a allen wrench/key. I'm 5'9" and 175 lbs and I have tons of fun with this bow. I got this for my wife and it has a 25# draw weight. She can do it but would prefer a lighter draw weight.
You could hunt with this bow if you wanted...probaly not deer but pretty much anything else. I don't hunt but I can tell by how fast and hard it hits the targets at around 15 yards.

Good adult starter bow
I'm new to archery and wanted to start target shooting in my back yard. The recurve bow is perfect.
Used about 3 weeks now, 30 lbs draw is a very good starting place for me. I shoot 4-5 hours a week. Great bow highly recommend very good price for a beginner adult.

Small child 50-70 lbs should use a 10-15 lbs draw weight. Child 70-100 lbs should use a 15-25 lbs draw weight. Most women and boys from 100 - 130 lbs should use a 30-40 lbs draw weight. Women above average strength and youth boys 130 - 150 lbs should use a 40-50 lbs draw weight.
There is Draw Length, Draw Weight and Brace Height but not draw height. Draw Length is the distance from the nock point to the throat of the grip plus 1 3/4". Draw Weight is the peak amount of weight an archer will pull while drawing the bow. Brace height is the distance between the string (at the nockpoint) and the inside of the bow's grip when a bow is not drawn.
If you have a smaller frame and are not looking for a heavy draw weight, it could work for you. If you are taller than 5'4", you will want to look into adult or full-size bows. A 30# draw weight will get you to a range target at 20 yards just fine.
