Martin Leopard is about your only option unless you find a Cheetah/Exile w 50# max limbs

depending on draw length you should look at something with the furyxt.it goes 35# to 70#

The incredible new Fury XT single cam allows
you to easily change the bow from 30.5" of draw to 24"
in half inch increments and allows a 70# bow to be adjusted
all the way down to 35#.

Call Martin and have them custom build a bow with the FuryXT cams and 60 lb limbs. It would go from 60 lbs to 25 lbs.

My wife selected a 2011 CrossFire, everything cloaked; I then added a camo. arrow wrap ever the cable guard bar to finish the cloak. At 5'4" and 110lbs, my wife rocks with the CrossFire and keeps up with me and my ShadowCat.

That's pretty awesome! Can you post a pic? What pound is she shooting at? Arrows? Broadheads?rest? Etc. If you don't mind. I love seeing the different rigs that work for others.

It is nice if you can get her hooked. One thing though, one bow addiction is expensive enough. But two, then the kids get hooked. I love it though. She settled in on a pink camp Mission Craze. #45 . Made her a hog target yesterday. She will split arrows if I dont watch her.

There's really no need to have a bow custom built. Any 50# Martin bow can be safely shot down to 35#. Those in the 2012 lineup can be jiggled around in draw length pegs and limb bolts to yield a 35# draw weight range. In other words a 50# bow can presumably be shot as low as 15# with proper use of the pegs on the cam. What you really need to be concerned about is what bows she can get that fir her draw length. Then worry about the draw weight.

So before making a specific bow recomendation we should know what draw length would fit her.
