    Ya i didnt catch the target part,in that case any mini genesis bow would work fine...............

    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 . 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,

    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.
