How to Choose a Parker Youth Bow
• Choosing a Parker youth bow should be easy, considering
that the manufacturer only offers four of them, two of which
are just different colors of different models. There is, however,
a need for you to know which of these four is to be bought,
and considering just how different one is from the other
should help you decide which one should a child use.
• Youth bows are actually bows which are in smaller
frames, and they are also known as small-frame bows. Parker,
the leading brand for compound and crossbows, has provided
thousands of children their first ever bows as well as their first
experiences with handling and shooting with such. And if you
know what things to consider, choosing which youth bow to
buy among the two should be easy.

• Parker offers two youth bows which are the Buckshot
Extreme and the Sidekick Extreme. They are different from
one another, and choosing one for your child shouldn’t be
very hard if you know what you need to consider, as well as
what you and your child prefers.
• Mass Weight. Less weight is equal to more comfort, but there
are also some children who might want some additional
weights to feel more comfortable with their bows. The
Buckshot weighs a mere 2.75 pounds and the Sidekick weighs
just 3.25 pounds. When held, most children wouldn’t even
know the difference.

• Price. Considering the price seems to be a good idea, but
considering just this wouldn’t do. The Sidekick Extreme bow
alone costs $299.95 while the other costs $249.95. And while
the Buckshot wins this time, there are still so many things to
compare and decide on.
• Grip. Sidekick has the two-piece grip, walnut-finished, making
it easy for children to make their hands fit in with the bow,
while the Buckshot features the Synprene grip which makes it
easy for children to load and fire repeatedly with more

• There are many other things to consider, and the above
things are not the only factors in the equation. Take note of
the limb design, the draw lengths and weights, bow length,
brace heights and the buss cable, but don’t forget that it
comes in two colors and two very different designs. And when
choosing between the Sidekick and the Buckshot, remember
this: Whatever youth bows you decide to choose, a Parker
youth bow would always be a delight to have and use.
