    What is a good bow for women???

    I'm trying to get my girlfriend into bowhunting. Any ideas for a bow for a woman would be great, and female AT members, let me know what you like dislike. I want her to have fun so she continues to do it. Thanks for the input.

    Im getting my gf the diamond razors edge..I have shot it a few times, and have found nothing to complain about it...Very adjustable, plenty fast, and SMOOTH! Man I was impressed at how smooth that thing was.. definately not what I was expecting for a $320 package! I honestly think you cannot go wrong with this bow..

    If money isn't an object Hoyt is coming out with the Vicxen I believe it is. It is listed as a short draw shooters bow and I believe the cam 1/2 plus is on it so you have a couple inch adjustment range. I do agree though that Diamond does make a nice bow with about an 8"-10" adjustable draw range and adjustable draw weight (is that the Razors Edge?). Look into those.

    The razor's edge is a really good deal. I might get my sister one of those. The mathews passion is a sweet bow, but it's quite a bit more brand new.

    Mathews Passion costs some coin and is a really nice bow, but for the money the Razors Edge is nice.

    Thumbs up I think..

    My gf's first year as well. Even tho im a set for life mathews shooter, i was beyond impressed with diamond's release of the razors edge. She loved the passion after she shot it for a few hours. She had her mind set on buying it. I some how changed her mind in to shooting just one more bow and that happened to be the razors edge. Long story short we walked out of the dealer with a razors edge. The razors edge is by far the bow i would go with for women. Easily adjustable, wide range of adjustments, and the most important part BOW PRESS FREE as far as draw length is concerned. No switching of cams or time consuming disassemblement. You can dam near adjust it in the field if need be.

    The mission menace, diamond edge and the mathews passion are all good choices!

    take a look at the alpine sienna, again a little more money, but she wont ever get to the point where she is out-shooting it and want to upgrade. my opinion is that the sienna and the mathews are the top of the line in the womans specific bows.

    Why do most guys recommend a bow with a highly adjustable draw length for women? They're adults and their arms are not going to get any longer. Assuming a short draw length the bows that are made specifically for women really fill the niche between youth bows and bows designed for men.

    I bought my wife a Martin Bengal after several years of her shooting either a Hoyt or PSE. She much prefes her Bengal and got her first Robin Hood last week.

    just got mine a Mission Menace. very adjustable in draw weight and range. right now she can only pull 30 lbs. but that will improve as her form improves.

    i like that the draw weight and range has a broad adjustment not just for her but when the time comes for an upgrade and reselling it.
