    Default Crossfire...

    My wife's CrossFire suite her well, and with her loghter arrows and low draw weight she is as accurate as can be!

She's quite petite so she'd never pull more than 50 lbs, so thats why I am thinking the light limbs. And then the bow would I guess adjust all the way down to 15 lbs... Though she'd probably shoot it at no less than 25.

    Anyone have any experience setting up one of these bows short and light? How did it shoot? I think it would probably be better to get something more directly aimed towards a short length low weight archer, but I can't help wondering about it.

    We know you're joking so no harm done. As for banning anybody over this? Ain't gonna happen. I see nothing wrong with making suggestions that would benefit another archer, whether it be a Martin bow or not. Afterall, archers helping archersis what this site is about. If Martin doesn't make a suitable bow for somebody's purpose then help a guy or gal out.

    Ur banned too!! But true story, regardless of this being a Martin based forum, that is what sets us apart from the other locations. Frankly I don't know squat about bow that are more geared/suited towards women, so this is a good thread for me to just read with what people come up with.

    We won't ban you but will sugest that you should eat an onion to get the taste of that other M brand out of your mouth. As for Leopards, found two of them on fleabay, one used and one new in box, here's a link to 'em!


    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Martin-Leopa...item3f168dd1a1 This is the used one.

    And the new in box bow, ships free.

    @ OP All the bows suggested here should be great, now it's going to be personal preference.

    YES Fleabay has stuck!! I WIN! All in good humor, I've heard the Misson Craze is a nice bow for youth/women. Nothing wrong with going with something that fits best for the shooter, but as a Martin diehard ... I gotta get my jab in. No ill will
