    Help me out. Women's bows. I see Hoyt makes a vicxen which seems to be popular. There are a bunch of cheaper bows out there with a bunch of adjustability which would be good. Such as the Infinite Edge and Mathews makes one too don't they?


    About a 26-27" DL. And prob needs to be 35-40 lbs DW. The highly adjustable bows are great but I really want a fairly high end not the mid to low end bows. I'll prob buy used as well to save money.

    What bows am I missing and tell me what you know.

    Sorry had too!

    Have you checked out the Mathews Jewel? That was the last one before the new one they just came out with. You should be able to find one used. The only thing is I don't think its adjustable. If I was looking for a fully adjustable bow with the draw length and poundage, I would look into the Mission line. Maybe the Craze 2.

    I haven't checked out anything yet for her to be honest. This was my first step to get a list of bows to shoot to pick one.

    Take a look at the quest storm.
    I plan on getting one for my son as he will be in the 23-27 draw range. 30-60 lbs adjustable and probably the best accessories on a package bow. It was designed for shorter draws so I theory it should be pretty efficient like a number 1 cam Hoyt or like the assassin sd was.
    PSE makes something similar.
    Hoyt has the power max I think, pretty much the same bow as the charger my wife shoots and loves.
    The bows I mentioned should be in the 500-600 range for a package setup.

    BJE, I think we left the store having spent just a bit under $500 with everything she needed to hunt and target shoot, too. Not a bad deal.

    My wife shot a lot of bows and loved the aval and PSE evolve but went with halon 6. She loves it . Just remember it does not have to be a woman's bow . It can be any bow as long as it fits her. The PSE evolve is a sweet shooter and looks sick in black.

    There are a lot of great women's bows out there. Most all of the manufacturers have them. Just like any of us would probably suggest when it comes to a new bow for any guy out there, the key really is to get her into shops and put different bows in her hands. The way a bow feels in hand, through the draw, and at the shot will be the difference in her enjoying archery vs not wanting to shoot/hunt.

    Mathews, Mission, Hoyt, Bowtech, Diamond, Elite ... and many others make great women's bows. You just need to put her hands on as many as possible and let her decide.

    I am a Hoyt guy personally, but I just purchased my wife a Eva shockey SS by bowtech she absolutely loves it. I have also personally shot it and it is a fairly light and smooth bow. You also have the ability to flip the disc to make it more of a speed type bow. She shot her first deer this year with the bow set at 38#. Definitely one to consider. Huge huge upgrade from the diamond infinite edge.

    I bought my stepdaughter a diamond infinite edge. I don't care for it, and I think that quality is lacking. My wife started shooting it and really ended up enjoying archery so I bought her a Mathews chill SDX. It's a great bow that I'd be happy to use.
