Default helping someone start out

hey im trying to get my fiance into bow hunting and want to get her a bow to start with. something 45lbs ish. something that wont break the bank if she dont like the sport. im thinking a whisper creek kit or a cheap pse deer hunter kit. she likes the passion but im not buying her a mathews because its purple just for her to decide she only wants to gun hunt. i dont want to go over 300 on a hunt ready bow. im askin alot here but input would be awesome thanx

( she is 5foot even so draw length is gonna be tiny)

Try a Diamond Razor Edge. They are right close to $300 ready to shoot and the draw length is adjustable with only an allen wrench. I got my wife one last year to try and she liked it. Now she wants that over priced Passion. Why can't Bowtech make a womans bow?

tested the parker lineup, i thought that quality was there and the price affordable.

ps, the passion does come in camo!

Maybe that place that rhymes with ricks would have something.

My lady has a Parker Challenger that is practically new, still in the box. She has bought two expensive bows since then and never got rid of the Parker. It probably has 150 shots on it. Parker rebuilt it with new 40-50# limbs, new riser to match the limbs, new cable and string, new grip, new cable slide. If your interested in it PM me. It is pretty quick too. Draw length is 24"-25".

I got my girlfriend the PSE Chaos, doesnt break the bank and is a good shooting little bow.. She is very into the sport now and will be getting a upgrade soon. It was a great starter bow though!
