I bought two Diamond Nuclear bows for the granddaughters and they love them. They are compounds. Girls were 6 and 8. I highly recommend them. They will grow with the child as well.

Diamond certainly has some options. I have a provider that will go from 5 lbs to 70 to grow with the kids.

Again not a recurve, but my kids (10 and8) love shooting there diamond prism. 5 to 55 pounds, will grow with them for a while.

If you’re looking for a kids recurve look at “mad dog” bows.
