Haven't shot since I was a kid...now 68yrs, 65"ht about 150lbs...I'm thinking of starting up again...how about a bow recommendation....#, size..I have a little Carpal Tunnel problem in both wrists..love the looks of the Dreamcatcher..too much bow for me?? How about some advice from your professionals/gentelmen to a older fellow novice...I would appreciate your expertise. Thank You!

i bough a martin bengal last year and it is a great bow. he only complaint i have is i wish it was bit faster, but for hunting its a great set up. its light at 3.5lbs, smooth to draw and very easy to hold. mine is adjustable from 45lbs-60lbs so there should be a weight in there that works well for you. its accurate and forgiving with a 7.5 inch brace height. i am confident enough to take a shot on a calm whitetail at 40 yards and practice with shots out to 80. nows the time to buy a '10 model i got my 09 last january for 320 bucks roughly 200 dollars less than retail. good luck and hope you enjoy what ever bow you decide on.

Siberian, you might try posting your question on the "traditional" section of the Forums. I'm sure there's a few traditional guys in here, but I think most of us are "cam heads" lol
