my wife is really liking her Bear Truth 2 lite. 24-28" DL w 50# max. its very quiet and draws very smooth and easy on her already-bad shoulder and double-jointed wrists. she didn't like the grip(too small) so SHE took her nail file and shaped her own wood grips and wrapped it in electrical tape. I'm impressed with the grips now. very comfy.

Criteria: Used, Target, 24" draw, 30-40#

Just for availablity of parts I'd look for a 2007 or later P3 or Mystic Elite with Furious or Furious X cams. If you run into a P3 with Nitrous it has to have A base cams. Both are dual cam and fairly light weight so can be customized with your choice of stabilizer systems. Neither will be vibration free or super quiet, but for a target bow who cares. A2A and brace height would be almost ideal for the intended usage. This is in the Martin lineup. Others brands I wouldn't know about because just like Martin they all keep changing names every year and I make no attempt to keep abreast of them all.

Sorry, but I'm going to have to differ with you on this. 29 1/2" a2a, 6 1/2" brace, and highly reflexed riser is not a good choice for a target bow.

Over on AT sstarnes has a Mystic for sale. Just the right specs, too. $280 shipped. Might be gone as it is dated last October, but it's worth an ask. The thread isn't closed.

Ok, I'm going to be the bad guy here. My wife started shooting last year with a 30-60 pound Diamond Razor Edge and thinkg went well at 38 pounds for her. She tweaked a neck muscle and had a very hard time shooting it so she put it away. I bought her a custom Oneida Hawk and it's a night & day difference for her. I think it is a combination of things that make this bow work for her. 1. a longer riser for more control, 2. way smoother draw, 3. holding less weight at full draw with 80% let off, 4. longer overall length, 5. she likes it, she looked at the Diamond as a kids bow so the Oneida gave her the mindset of a "big boy bow".
She is currently at 42 pounds and shooting better than ever. The Oneida makes an excellent target bow for the above reasons. The older ones are a little heavier than the newer models, and a little noisy at the shot but I've never seen a target jump the string :D. Hopefully she will be at 50 pounds by next spring, not necessary but I do hope she gets there. So, long story short. Don't overlook the Oneida's, they can be picked up real reasonable on several forums and ebay.

Hutch,
Septertman on AT has this bow for sale..http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/showthread.php?t=1468628&p=1061880088#post1061880088
It's what Barry was talking about.
Scott has differant cams for it and will set it like you want, but I would just let him set it up like he thinks it should be for your wife.
He is a great guy to deal with too.
Don.
