    I wouldn't try to narrow it down!! You never know if you could possibly exclude a bow that is 'perfect'!

    @HUNTNH - you can make any bow "girlie" with accessories. So she shouldn't feel she needs a woman's bow. Making sure the bow fits her is what is important! The Jewel is a great bow, very quiet and light weight.

    Guess I'll be the first to say if you find an Elite dealer, have her try an Elite...I shoot an Elite Hunter with 25" DL. She needs to shoot as many bows as possible though and decide what she likes.

    start her off with something thats going to be a pleasure to shoot, nice easy draw with a great speed for shorter draws. New Breed Genetix. You can buy a new one for just a little above that amount.

    @ HUNTNH- why does she want a "women's" bow? You can make any bow look girly by what you put on it. I just ordered a 2012 Carbon Element with pink and orange string. But if she is stuck on getting a women's bow and if she likes hoyt have her try the vixion. Had I not been able to test shoot the element that would have been my choice. I like the jewel also but it seemed a little top heavy for my liking. Best thing to go is take her to a shop that carries a multitude of different brands and let her shoot EVERYTHING she can get her hands on. Every bow is different as is every person. I could draw the Element at 45 lbs but the jewel only to 44.
    Good luck to her. Her bow will find her

    I am upgrading to the Mathews Jewel, but I dearly love my Passion. It is great for target shooting and hunting and I've bagged pronghorn, bear, whitetail and prairie dogs. My Passion is for sale....it's a 40-50 lb draw, rh and 27 in draw. Let me know if you are interested.

    I think that you should def check out the Quest line. I shoot the Rogue and I love it. Several women I know are shooting the Torch but it was too small for me since I have a 28 inch draw and I pull back close to 60 pounds. Def worth checking into. They are very affordable.

A lot of women shoot the Ibex model- it is shorter ATA, and can go down to a 24.5 inch draw. These bows are ridiculously smooth and very fast. The grip fits well in my hand, and the bow isn't too heavy for me, but it is heavy enough that it doesn't feel like a toy.
    What kind of speeds you getting out of your athens? Starting to really consider their Exceed 300. It will have to pull double duty for a little while but buddy shoots one and loves it.

    My Exceed is 281 at 50 lbs, 27" draw. I love this bow. I also have an Accomplice 34. Getting same speed with the target arrows I use in the Exceed. With my hunting arrows I am at 256 in the Accomplice, haven't shot them in my Exceed. Personally, I like the grip on the Exceed better. Very thin, target style grip. Feels great in my hand.
