    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.

    Between 30-40lbs draw length should be around 24"

    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.
