Hello...I've got a buddy who is looking for a bow for his son. How far down poundage wise can a 50 to 60 pound bow usually be reduced? Thanks

It's best to stick with what the manufacture rates the limbs, so in this case, your safest bet is 50 lbs.

check and see if you can order limbs with a lower poundage?

50 lbs. Cranking out limb bolts too far can be risky . Most bows perform best at their maximum weight range , so it's better to buy a bow that can be cranked up to his maximum draw weight .
Correct draw length is very important too . ;\) It's better to buy a bow that fits him properly and can be adjusted as he grows .

A good used Jr bow might also work...that's what I started two of my sons on and they both killed deer with them

PSE Nova bows are great bows for kids. Bought one for my wife 20lbs to 30lbs.
