After joining the site and searching and reading tons of information, I ordered a new Apprentice 2 for my 10-year old son for Christmas. Not knowing if he's really going to stick with this archery thing, I didn't want to spend a boatload of money, but wanted something that was high enough quality that he could shoot accurately. Like a lot of kids, if he can't get the satisfaction of doing it well, he won't stick with it. I think the Apprentice 2 will fit the bill, and I won't have to buy another bow for a few years.
Now my question now is what length of arrow is recommended. His draw length is 22 inches. Anyone with experience with this bow have any recommended arrows?
