thank you folks for the warm welcome. I have another bow I am looking at diamond rapture. Do any of you women out there have any tips for a woman that wants to shoot 3d only? Is the mathews ignition a good bow to start with for her? what style of rest should she try? good starting stabilizer? starting release?
thank you

Welcome !

There are a lot of really nice bows out there. The best thing to do is you and her try as many as you can and get a feel for what you like in your hand and what feels comfortable. That's by far the best way to pick out a bow. A release is the same way... They all feel different. It's like trying on shoes.
