    Look at the Mission Craze you can get it and set it up and have money left over. My pro shop has some in and they max out at 74 lbs very nice little bow.

It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle: when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.

    I also agree with Parker bows. Best service in the business if you ask my opinion. Great bows, and a great price.

    A Quest Smoke or Hammer is a very good bow for around $350, which leaves you $150 to purchase the accessories you want rather than what a given bow is setup with. Also the AT classifieds is a good option if you know what you are looking for.

I am a shorter hunter i am 5'8 and have a 27 inch draw. I looked at the diamond razors edge but everything i read says it is geared towards youth even though it felt good in my hand. I'm just looking for suggestions if anybody has any.
    You could look at a Bowtech Soldier. It goes up to 65# and that's no kid's toy.

    Don't let the fact that the razor's edge is geared toward youth archers scare you off. I have a 2009 set at 28.5" dl and pulling 50#. I'm 26, 5'10" and 220lbs.
    It is a dual cam bow so it was a bit harder to tune. It feels great in my hands as well. Just let the bow pick you. The other guys are right AT classifieds are awesome for getting deals, I actually got my bow on craigslist for 175 bucks ready to shoot minus arrows. I upgraded strings and the rest and bought 6 arrows. The deals are out there. Good luck!
