Simply put..............NO............
New to the sport I would go with like a PSE Chaos, Mission bow of somekind, Diamond, etc.... Something with a little less bite out of the wallet, but still a quality bow. If he sticks with it, after a year or 2 move up to a better bow.... Just my opinion...

The Omen is not a beginner bow IMO. There are several other PSE's that would do a good job for a beginner though. I think of the Omen as an advaced bow.

I believe the Stinger or the Brute would be the way to go. Not as radical as the Omen. easier to shoot for the beginner.

You will be much better off with another pse if that is what you had your heart set on, stinger, brute a bowmadness would also be nice if you wanted to spend more.

I have an Omen, and would definately say no... I love it, but would never recommend it to someone without experience and at minimum decent form and consistency.

The bow will shoot great, but its not a walk in the park to get used to at first and it may have the beginner wishing they hadnt dropped a grand really fast.

Like the others said I would not recommend it. It would be like putting a new driver in a Ferarri. A beginner is not ready for that aggressive of a bow. Shoot awhile, learn proper form and shot execution, then switch to a speed bow. To start, you want something that is easy to draw and forgiving of form flaws. Think single cam bow with a 7" inch brace height. For PSE, I would recommend the Bowmadness or Chaos. Most manufactures make a good bow that is suitable for beginners. Go test some out at a proshop and let the bow pick you. Good luck.

A Big No for a Beginner. look at PSE Brute, Stinger. The Bow madness bows are really nice to shoot too. I would steer them toward the Bow madness and or Brute First. I.M.O.

NO! no man not at all i dont recommend this bow for very experienced bow shooters more or less beginners, If i was you i would get him a gx or Ben Pearson tx-34, the omens cam is harsh to the max so radical its not fun to shoot at all! Relly it all depends on his age, late teens a gx cam is about as high as you want to go, with a younger teen 13 or lower i would recommend the Pearson or bow madness, only problem with the bow madness is the strings or cheap and not good where the Pearsons come with dang good strings. I hope I helped a little =)
