I had fiberglass bows growing up but got into making my own bows from the woods the indians used in my area, was just for fun but good experience. When I was traveling in the UK a couple of years ago I came across a company that makes traditional English Long bows but in low draw weights for kids, really , really cool. Something to look into if he really likes it.
I've shot compound bows but it's kind of like motorboating and kayaking, you either get it or you don't.
