Default Daughter's draw length?

My daughter is returning to the sport after 15 tears off. The guys at the shop say that she should start with a 27", 30-40lb bow. She is 5'9" and fairly athletic. My take is that before very long she will wish for a 40-50. What say you?

Its tough to say!

If its a good pro shop and those guys are trust worthy. I would agree with them.

Sad fact is youth do get stronger quicker shooting bows. No doubt in my mind she will get stronger. But if she struggling starting out it may be conunter productive.
