​Hi. I am Moritz, owner of "My Archery Corner" and I have been shooting bows for over 15 years. There is nothing that gives me more joy than hitting bullseye with a strong and reliable compound bow.
And I want you to feel the same!
Get ready for the immense strength and power only compound bows can give you.



Best Compound Bows For Kids Or Beginners

When just starting with archery or the first compound bow, you need a bow that doesn't have a draw weight that is too high.
There's nothing more frustrating than being not able to properly pull the string back (draw the bow).
This can frustrate and is also bad for learning the right technique.

These bows are perfect for kids and beginners:


The Genesis Kit - The Perfect Compound Bow For Beginners And Kids

Genesis Kit Yellow

Genesis Kit Yellow

The perfect compound bow for teenagers or beginners. Its adjustable draw weight ranges from 10 - 20 LBS. With a draw length of 15" - 30" it fits archers of all sizes.

The Genesis Compound Bow is the only bow used and recommended by the "National Archery in the Schools Program". If your child wants to participate in this program, it is best to start with a Genesis bow right away.

This kit i ready to shoot and comes with one Compound Bow, a Belt Tube Quiver, an Arm Guard, 5 Aluminum Arrows, a Hex Wrench, and the Owner's Manual.

It is not suitable for hunting, due to its low draw weight. But it is the best bow for complete beginners and young archers. To get all the details, please read my full review.


Diamond Archery Infinite Edge Pro - A Bow For A Lifetime

Diamond Infinite Edge Pro

Diamond Infinite Edge Pro

Thanks to its extremely wide draw weight range, you will never need to get another compound bow once you got your hands on the Diamond Archery Infinite Edge Pro. The draw weight ranges from 5 - 70 LBS.

The very low draw weight of just 5 LBS makes it very beginner friendly. Once you are stronger and an advanced archery, you can simply increase the draw weight according to your needs. The draw length also suits every type of archer and ranges from 13" - 31".

This Compound Bow Package comes with many extras, like a bow sight, a bow quiver, an arrow rest and a stabilizer.
The only thing you need to get besides this package are arrows. Arrows are NOT included. For more detailed information, please read my full review.


The Bear Archery Apprentice 3 - Maximum Customization

Bear Archery Apprentice 3

The first compound bow I ever shot with and I am still a fan.
This compound bow has a draw weight from 15 - 60 LBS. With a Let-Off of 70% it is super easy to draw.

The release is very smooth and thanks to the draw length of 15" - 27" the bow fits most archers very well.
It comes with an arrow rest, a quiver and some other gadgets. However, arrows are not included in this offer.

Best Compound Bows For Advanced

As an advanced archer, you have gained a certain level of expertise and know how to correctly let arrows fly from your bow.
This might be your first time trying a compound bow. Or maybe you just want to buy a new one.
Either way, compound bows for advanced archers can be a bit more challenging and a bit more powerful.

Make sure you know the basics of archery and compound bows before trying one of these beauties:

SAS Rage Compound Bow

SAS Rage Compound Bow

This bow is a beast. Fast and strong. Make sure you are an experienced archer before you try taming the SAS Rage Bow.
With a draw weight from 55 - 70 LBS and a draw length from 26" - 30" it is not a bow for beginners or teenagers.

But when you know how to handle a bow and are able to pull such a draw weight, you are in for an amazing archery experience.

It comes with a sight, stabilizer and some other gimmicks.
