Default good womens bow?

Anyone have or know anyone who has had good luck with either a Matthews Mustang or a Parker Micro Pheonix?

High Tine,

It's not a mathews or Parker, but you may want to look into a Jennings CK3.3 or Rackmaster Lite. Both of these bows are smaller and lighter in physical weight. They both seem to have some popularity with the ladies of the sport.
The Rackmaster Lite seems to get a good review from the women I have talked to. It seems to be a popular choice with a smaller grip, and better feel.

Hope it helps.

I just bought the new Bowtech Miranda. It is wonderful. Shoots great.

My better half recently bought a new Parker Challenger and she loves it. Hell I love it!! It's light, and shoots 180fps at only 38 lb draw. she can tighten it up to 50 pounds as she gets her back stronger. It's incredibly smooth to draw, accurate, light, reasonably priced, and deadly silent!! What else can you ask for??

Default Parker Challenger

long_round_tip... and if you ever want to go to heavier limbs... you can get them from Parker for $50..

There are lots of great bows for youth/women.

try the micro- midas III or the micro- adrenaline. depending on her stature. they are lite, accurate, fast and tons of bow press free adjustments

I like bowtech so Rascal or Miranda would be good. I have to suggest the Darton Vapor as well. My buddy just bought his wife that bow. It is an excellent bow for women too. Good Luck!

I have a challenger and shoot better than the hoyt guy i shoot with in indoor league not alot better.I think i get 130fps at 50 pound at 23inch whick no needs to be changed to 26 or 27. So i will get about 170 with a arrow thats well over 250grains. Now thats blazen for a little bow. They are tough as hell to my bow is in great shape after 2 years with 3 strings still buetiful.

micro phenoix is a sweet bow to a hundred dollars more so i would suggest this over challenger. Ether way its a challenger so you will be getting a great bow at a great price.
