Default Need a bow for the wife.

I just say bearbowhunter's thread about a bow for his girlfriend and I didnt want to jack his ghread so I thought Id start my own.

Ive been taking so many trips to the Archery range lately that my wife is starting to show interest in shooting as well so I figured it was time to get her a bow. My issue is finding one with a low enough poundage that she can draw. She is rather tall with a 28" draw so a kids bow wont work, but she can only draw around 35# right now.

Ive been looking at a Bear Quest because it has 50# of adjustment but id rather not spend $400 on a bow set up that she may get bored with in a month or two. Basically I need a fullsized bow with lots of adjustment for dirt cheap. She wont be hunting, just target practice Any ideas? Ebay hasnt turned up much....

X2 on the Diamond razor edge. They sell for around $329.00 locally and would fit her requirements.

PSE has some awesome packages out. I own a new bow Madness XS, 50-60 but I put a lot into it getting ready to hunt. The packages they sell are really good. Easy draw, smooth and rather light on the pocket book.
