If I was you, I would go to my local archery pro shop and see what is available. Try a few out, and pick one that is comfortable to you. What`s right for me, may not be right for you. Shoot a couple of different ones, and see what feels right.

You need to try a few but I'd stay away from the really short bows as they are less forgiving of shooter errors.Good luck!

your getting sound advice. shoot as many as you can in your price range and buy the one that feels the best to you. Dont listen to anyone, not even a shop owner/worker if they tell you Brand X is the best bow money can buy. There are different bows by different companies to different specs for a reason.

Exactly, at least with trying before you buy you can get a feel for what that bow is like i.e if it suits you or not.

I do recommend bowtech and diamond. I have the diamond rock its a great light bow with great performance.

Good luck.

FWIW i also recommend people shoot a bowtech before they buy a bow. Problem with them is they are pricey (as all the other top shelf models)

Look around and see if you can find a used bow (unless you have surplus money) that some other youngster outgrew. I lucked up and got a real niceHoyt for my grandson like that. Should last him 3 or 4 years.
