The Diamond Razor Edge has lots of adjustment both in Draw length and poundage.

It's also less than $300

My wife has a parker, buckshot 40 lbs, 23.5 draw and shoots out to 30 yds. She is only 5' 2.5" and not very strong.

23" draw seems a little short for a 5' 5" woman. Be sure to have the shop re-check her draw length.

I've heard good things about the Edge.

I shoot an Equalizer but it might be a bit much for a starter bow. (not to mention you'll have to order one fast, Bowtech discontinued them. [:@])

Also, if you are looking to make plunge, the Elite Z28 is a great bow not only for men but women as well.

My wife has this bow (well, it is the Diamond Edge but I am not sure of the Razor part). It is a really nice shooting bow and she loves it. I was surprised how well it feels for the price. Great value IMO.
