Is this a good starter bow for a woman just geting into archery? I have found a used LH one that would fit her well just worried that the short BH may not be a good starter one. Please any info would help

I bought my wife an Ignition last July. She had never shot a compound bow in her life, but by September she shot a 278 out of 300 from the back stakes at her first 3-d shoot. I was very proud to say the least. -- So iguess I,m saying I think it's an excellent choice.

I found a LH 30-40 lbs not sure if she can pull more than 40 but I quess later down the road I could upgrade limbs or just get her a higher end bow, maybe like a 40-50 lb DXT if she sticks with it.

Im, McLean Bell and i shoot the ignition. The ignition is a great bow for hunting, or spot shooting. I have won tournaments with this bow but at the same time i use this bow for hunting. It is a great all around bow for archers with a short draw length. For the price i think this would be most defiantly not be a bad starter bow.

Well not when they are 350 plus around here and I can order a slightly used one for less than 200 bucks on here. Times arent great so where ever I can save a few bucks I am. I buy used as well, until I know for sure she is going to stick with it im not gonna invest a ton in it
