Here's the video for the curious:
I highly doubt my wife could...draw...the bow. She can't even pull a 40lb compound. Just hasn't shot and developed the muscle and technique.
As far as crossbow thumb, it'd be pretty hard to screw up as long as you have each hand on the pistol grips.
The buttstock is missing because there's 0 need for it. It might have shaved 3 or 4 ounces, but mainly it just allowed me to aim it without shouldering it, which allows me to shoot it in some goofy positions. Goofy shots are one of the main reasons I bought the bow.
Do you know how much the mini weighs? Trying to compare it to the Excalibur recurve xbow that I own now. The Excal says 5 lbs on the website, but it feels SO heavy. It does not carry well and I almost never use it because of this. I bought it mainly for my wife to use, but she can't cock it. She gets it almost all the way back and needs like another inch of travel for it to click, but she just can't do it.
So now we have a xbow that I don't like to carry, and she can't cock. I've shot 2 bucks with it, but now it mainly just harvests dust.
