    My wife is shooting 49#'s and typically shoots 2 to 3 hours at a time. She can pull more but why. She is very comfortable at that weight. She is shooting a 35 inch CSS Encore. Most of the women around here shoot45 to 50 pounds.

    Ya might look at the Mathews Prestige. It's rated pretty fast at 29 " ,around 320. Might be the speed you're looking for without fighting or being overbowed. There are others in the same catagory

Since I won't be hunting for a while, my bow is for target/3d. So do any of you know or have wives or girlfriends that shoot? What do they pull?

    They also say my bow is not as forgiving as most others, so this makes me better than most others, Right?

    Where I came from, I only shot around guys and was always in somewhat competition with them, as much as I could be, being a girl and all.

    my wife is shooting a ROSS CR334 at 55# My friend wife that shoots with us shoots 50#, she had a little trouble first shoot of the year due to not shooting over hunting season, I know alot of the women I see shoot 40-50# with a few that shoot in the 50-60# range but the average I would say is about 45# so no I would say 45# isnt alot but if its hard for you drop your poundage, if you shoot ASA speed limit is 260fps. Depending on what your bow is, I will say I would think you would gain an easier pull if you went to a ross, but that is another question. I think since most 3d shoots around here womens stakes are set within 30 yards 45# is plenty and I have seen women shoot 38# and do really well


    so all in all shoot what you are comfortable with
