A lady friend of mine has an interest in archery. So I'm trying to help her get a bow that she can shoot comfortably. She had an auto accident years ago and was left with limited range of motion and less strength due to Muscle damage in her right arm.

She can easily draw 35-40 lbs but probably not much more. I feel that the single cam Moab/firecat TR1 cam is the way to go for her she needs a 26" draw. Any suggestions for the used Martin bows in the 50lb draw range? This way I can adjust down to 35-40 for her.

Don't forget the Leopard. It might work a little better for her. A bit cheaper than the other two also.

I'm afraid that the draw will be just a hair too short. It goes to 26" and with a loop about 26.5 ish? Maybe with the string loop? She is 5'7" tall so with a string loop it would be 26.5 max. I hate to buy that and be a bit too short. If that bow went up to 27" it would be the first choice for her.

See if you can find a 08 Mystic with Mini Mpro cam. I have one that I shot after neck surgery and it is 35-50# DW and I believe from 26-30" DL. This bow is silky smooth as far as the draw. I believe this would be the bow for her.
