Crossbow recommendation for daughter

My daughter will be turning 12 this September and I would like to set her up with a crossbow. Looking for recommendations for smaller framed people. She is your average sized 11 year-old, so the larger crossbows will not work.

I have a Darton Fireforce that is too big and too heavy for her.

Thanks for the help.

Just bought a VixenII off Arrowhead here on HPA. Bought it for my daughter! Can't wait to shoot it and have her kill a spring turkey with it!

Re: Crossbow recommendation for daughter

The Vixen II makes a great crossbow for the smaller framed people.
Parker also makes an adjustable stock (for length of pull) The Pink Stinger is a cool looking bow for a girl. It's regular camo with a very light pink hue to it. The Buck Buster 150 is basically the same bow without the pink hue and a longer power stroke. The stock on both models have a removable peice, just forward of the buttplate.
