    Glad she found what she likes. I guess it's better to wait a couple of weeks to get the right bow that to settle for what's in stock and like it less.

    Also, it would help to mention her height & draw length, so a seller knows if you can use what they have.

    2 important points here; she needs to try before you buy for her and go to a pro shop, NOT a big-box store. If you've bought bows before, I apologize for stating the obvious. But new...

    WHat is the minimum draw weight on thhese bows? I am inclined to go with the regular model, not the lite one. I say so because even small women can shoot more than 29 pounds, with a bit of practice.
