Guy, A lot of it would depend on the size and strength of your son at 6 yrs.  He really needs to get to a shop (if he hasn’t already) and shoot one.  I shot one about 3 months ago at a shop in Pennsylvania (USA) and was pretty impressed by it.  It’s max draw weight is 25lbs., but I *think* it can be adjusted down a little.  If you know that you want to start your son out on a compound, and that he can handle this particular bow’s weight and draw length (15 inches minimum), then I think you really can’t go wrong with the Genesis.  The best thing is, he can use it for years without having to adjust/change cams or limbs on the bow.  It will draw all the way up to 30", so it is a great starter bow for just about anyone.

From what I’ve found the Bowtech Rascal would be my suggestion for a compound for a six yeat old. It is a high quality bow, draw weight is adjustable from 10 to 40 pounds, draw length is adjustable from 19 to 25 inches. I tried to convince my eight year old to get one but he had his heart set on a bow he’d already seen (better camo). The recommendation on this one came from a dealer who is himself a Matthews shooter. You can check it out online at www.bowtecharchery.com.
