When I saw the title of this thread and who posted it, I thought you were looking for something for your hair.

The Genesis bow is a great starter bow, especially for kids and women. This way you can see if you really like the sport without sinking a "TON" of money into gear and it's easily re saleable. The bow can grow with your ability and once you feel the need to go further, you simply sale it and purchase what you want...

Fine Ms. Pissy. I suggest you look into Parker Bows.

Does that outdoor store on the north side of Newnan have a bow shop?

Go to Gables. Just make sure you have a mossy oak bow in your hair.

That's what I was going to suggest too. If I'm not mistaken, it's pretty easy to adjust the draw length (and just about everything else) on the Genesis bows.

from what i understand, the genesis does not "set" (or stop) on a draw length... it can be pulled back 24" and then handed to someone who pulls it back 30".

i have looked at them, and the weight usually tops out around 20-25lbs, i'm looking for more in the 30-40lb+ range.

thanks for the suggestion though!

That may be why I thought it was easy to adjust the draw length...nothing to adjust, can't get much easier than that

But I you're right about the draw weight, it's only between 10-20 lbs, but they say it's release energy is comparable to a 35lb recurve (at least according to the website)....but probably still not what you are looking for. Good luck!
