At your age and size you should have zero trouble shooting 60# once you start shooting. That is about my size, and when I was your age I hunted with 84#...of course I had been shooting my whole life. Now I am 32 and I mostly hunt with 60# bows, and they are more than enough to kill any deer that ever walked. Don't know much about the Diamond bows though.

I really would prefer the rock, because I think the edge is used for kids. I am a first time bow hunter and was wondering if you people out there think the 60lb draw weight is enough for me to tackle? and would I be set not to upgrade if I liked bow hunting and got either the rock or razor?
no thats not enough im 14 and can pull 45lb if u only think u can pull 60lb go to a bow store and see how easy it is or hard but by this u should be able to pull a little more than that and for sure pick a diamond rock is a good choise i have one and it never fials me like a bear i bought and it broke and hit my eye
