    you would have to hold and shoot the 2 to see the difference........the mustang has better more solid feel to it.....

    judging by brace height alone, the igniton should be more forgiving

    As a new shooter I would look at the brace height. The Ignition would be more forgiving for you and I believe that cam has some draw length adjustment on it.

    We got the ignition for the wife... the draw cycle felt smoother and the bow over all felt better.. to hold on target and at the shot. A little more brace height and a little less reflex style lend this to be a more forgiving bow, a little lighter to boot. I'd save the 2 benji-greens for accessories.. like sights, rest and arrows. imo

    Yeah those $$ would come in handy.

    The issue is I'm a short draw shooter thanks to my italian mom. 5' 3"
    My DL is 24.5 and my DW right now starting is 45, but I haven't shot bows in 20 yrs, but I'll take that up to 53 as a few months come.
    So my options are limited.

    This local archery shop owner who is a former mechanical design engineer and archery team coach set me up on the ignition and it got the best arrow speed out of all bows i shot! I was amazed. Most bows that start at 24 and go up in DL would not be good for me due to the reductions I have to take off IBO (fps loss due to reduction in DL and DW).

    Well, at least I'll be shooting a good made bow and the demensions are right on with some new "small archer" bows and bottom line is I need a bow that performs for ME.

    What do you think..? I appreciate all your opinions..
