Hello. I'm 100% new to archery. I plan on going to a local archery safety class soon. My GF is just as excited about it as I am. I've been trying to get a list together of equipment to buy for us.

I've read around and the Genesis bows seem to be a popular starter bow. Personally, I'd like something with a little more power since I'm quick to learn pretty much everything I pick up. I noticed the Genesis Pro has up to a 25lb draw weight, which isn't much higher, but I don't know if it can be shared like the standard bow says. I also read a review or two that mentions the Pro doesn't come with an arrow rest.

If anyone has any advice, I'd appreciate it very much. I'd like to stick with something we can both use if possible till we can afford a second bow, but I'm open to any thoughts. I'm trying to get a list of necessities together on amazon.com or something. I really have no clue clue at to look for or what to stay away from. Lol
