    My wife tried a bunch out last year.
    The ones she liked were the bowtech heartbreaker and their carbon rose, Bear's Finesse and Hoyt's charger. She had the infinite edge and liked it but wanted something more dialed in since she was done growing.
    A couple hundred miles and a few shops later she picked the charger with the vicxen package.
    She said her second pick would have been the heartbreaker and that she would have been happy with any of them.
    Not sure about the Rose but the others can be had in those specs with the exception being the Finesse goes to 28" but that's probably do able.
    Hope that helps.

    Diamond Infinite Edge is pretty a solid bow. It's super adjustable so she will be able to set it to her needs. Then again the infinite is more of a youth bow then a bow made specifically for women in mind. You might want to look here for some different reviews on compound bows for women. I hope that helps you get a better idea. Best of luck.

    I absolutely LOVE my Jewel. If you want to go something a little cheaper, check out the Mission line.

    I wanted to get the Jewel...but settled for something a little more reasonable for the moment. I have the Mathews Mission Craze - great bow for the price and great adjustability.

    BowTech Carbon Rose is what my wife ended up with. She shot a lot of bows before she chose the rose. The Rose only goes out to 27" though. I do suggest letting her go shoot as many as she can both women's and men's bows especially with that draw length.

    With that kind of DL she can shoot any bow out there. Anything will be able to be ordered with 50lb limbs. And if she's wanting some pink or something on there you can do that with accessories. Sorry if your dead set on a woman's bow but why limit yourself since she has the arms for any bow on the market pretty much?

    My wife was dead set on her Carbon Rose as I stated she had. It was a little to short for her. After a lesson with a coach, she now shoots a Prime Rival set at 28/52. The longer ATA and physical weight of the bow is helping her shooting. She loves it. Goes to show limiting her to a woman's bow, she may not reach her potential.

    I agree, no reason to limit choices to a "woman's" bow if you don't have to. I have a draw length of 25" and pull 45 pounds (working my way up). As a left handed woman, I ended up buying the Bear Truth 2.

    I LOVE my Mission Riot! That being said, she needs to try everything she can get her hands on! Something will strike her as "the one".

    I absolutely LOVE my Jewel. But like said in earlier posts, any bow can be a woman's bow with the right modifications. My next bow is hopefully going to be the SDX
