If you are seeking a compact Recurve have a look at the Excalibur Matrix 355 Crossbow Package Realtree Xtra 240-pound. Take advantage of Compact Recurve technology (compact platform, unmatched durability, lighter-weight, enhanced accuracy, improved balance, reduced recoil/noise and easier to cock)
Excalibur Matrix 355 Crossbow
Matrix 355 Crossbow Realtree Xtra is a well manufactured product, extremely accurate. Well balanced and lightweight. Small for a recurve bow, cocking can still be difficult for someone who is smaller. A cocking device should do the trick with some Hef. The scope is outstanding, set it to factory standard FPS, shoot, adjust based on shooting high or low (Note: If you are shooting high, you are shooting faster so dial up, etc.) Some do say it definitely needs a R.E.D.S. Noise suppressor.
Another great tip is the Matrix does not come with an anti fire mechanism but the matrix 380 does. Matrix 355 has a fire/safety switch similar to that of a rifle. When purchasing the Matrix 355 make sure to add Excalibur Guardian Anti-Dry Fire Scope Mount.
The Matrix 355 Crossbow is on the pricey side for a beginner I would recommend going with something little cheaper to start out with like: Excalibur Axion SMF Crossbow. Unless you have tried the Matrix 355 Crossbow and you can afford it. You will not be disappointed. Here is a video describing all that is included. and a few added tips.

With the Matrix 355 Crossbow you get the Matrix PowerLoad limbs, Ergo-Grip Stock, Quad-Loc riser and the “Kolorfusion” applied to Realtree Xtra Camo, you also receive four grain field points and a rope cocking aid.
