Hmmm . . . I think they are Whitetail brand. Not sure. I told the guy where I bought my bow that I liked carbon arrows and he cut a dozen for me and put the inserts in for me (I am assuming they are called inserts, the things you put in the end so you can put your broadheads).

Look at the:
Mathews DXT IBO 322 FPS

in 40,50,60,70 lbs
7" brace height
ATA 29 3/4"
Physical weight 3.75 lbs

This is a great little bow, It's what im taking in the woods this year. This is there top of the line hunting bow this year, this would not be like settling for a youth bow. My uncle has also got one too in a 26" draw and loves it.

Also you can look at the mathews:
Ignition 278fps @ 26"/50 lbs
6 1/2" BH, 31 3/8 ATA, 19" to 26" in 1/2" incerments
Youth bow

Or

Mathews Prestige made for short draws that want speed.
322 FPS @29"
6" BH, 35 1/2 ATA 22-29" in 1/2" incerments

I will look while I'm working tonight at the draw lengths of a few different bows. Most newer bows have draw lengths adjustable at 1/2" increments by changing out the modules.

The young, uh, mmm, smarta$$ at the bow shop evidently didn't want to fool around with someone asking questions.

I've looked at the Parkers while out to our Sportsmans Warehouse. Not a bad little bow. The youngun across the street from me got one of the Edges for Christmas this year. Unfortunately it's a righty. Nice bow though. He's like a freakin RobinHood or something!

Thanks again
You should be able to order the lefty version of the Edge if ultimately that's what you go with. I've seen lefties at BassPro.

The reason most of the bows you see are in the 28 - 30 range is that when they test bows and publish speed results (IBO rating) They are tested at 30" draw length, 70# draw weight and a 350 gr. arrow so they are comparing apples to apples. Several manufacturers make shorter draw length bows and left handed models as well. I would recommend the Kobalt in the Hoyt line, it has an adjustable draw length and pretty sure it comes left handed. Tony and I bowfish with one in the springtime and I'll tell you even at 28" it really spits the arrows out pretty quick!

good luck on your search!

My Parker Challenger is set for 25 inch drawlength without a loop. I'm a lefty. It took to hogs in TX--complete passthrus both of them. I'm at 48#. I sure would like some pink muzzys, can't seem to find them here in WI. They would complement my hot pink and yellow fletchings!!!!

Rick, tell Caleb he has good taste!!!! Parker is a great bow.

You just keep rubbin it in about the hogs huh!?!

He picked that one himself. He lifted it off the rack, and said, "This is it."

I told him he should shoot it, and he says, "Well ok, but I already know." How cool is that??
