Default Bow for Son!!

I have been bow hunting for close to 15 yrs. and my son wants to get into it. Soooooo, we went and looked at a Parker Wildfire XP on Sunday. Going rate was 420.00 with everything but arrows at a near be shop that I use. Does anyone have anything to comment on these bows. My son is 15 yrs old with a 28 in draw and can pull around 50 lbs I would guess. I liked the bow myself but wanted to hear from anyone else about it.

They make great bows. I'm sure he will be very happy with it.

Thanks, man he is crazy about getting in the woods. I did not get to bow hunt this year. Had to go to a orthopedic surgeon, and was told that I have a frozen sholder. Painful as hell, was doing physical therapy that did nothing. Will end up having surgery, could not even pull back 25 lbs. anyway, he has shown great intrest, and I will will do all I can to help him out.
