    I would suspect that at 29 inches, 5gr per lb, you are going to see 290ish maybe even 300.

    Remember that 5gr per lb is 5gr per lb.

    60lb = 300gr total arrow weight = =D/>” title=”Applause” /><br />
70lb = 350gr total arrow weight =  <!-- s[-( --><img src=

    Save your shoulder and get the 60….you will NOT be sorry, I promise.

    In fact as a case in point….I own 2 XTs that I got stock with 70lbs…I replaced them both with 60lb….if you know anyone one looking for extra XT 70lb limbs….PM me ;)

    I’m only 5’8″, with 28.5 inch draw

    I wouldn’t trade my LD in for anything else

    that’s offered thus far…

    I do keep an open mind though

    But this LD, is by far a better shooting, comfortable smooth draw for me.

    I found the Dren I tried, to be very stiff to draw…

    before I vote what poundage are you drawing now and have you ever had any problems with it ? If you can handle the 70 go for it so far I doubt any deer has been impressed with what the poundage or speed is .. I know it might be different with 3d or long range targets but I really think you are the only one that can answer this question .. For what its worth I have a 60 and never even thought about a 70 .

    I think that if you are questioning it, you need to go with the 60 pounders. Once that doubt creeps in your mind, I would just switch or you’ll be doubting yourself later… JMO. [=}=] :thumbup

    :thumbup You’re absolutely right, for resisting that temptation. I cranked my 70# SB down to 60# in order to meet the restrictions at some of the shoots here, and simply got used to it. Then when I mounted a new string I set it back up at 70#, and wow, what a difference. Much faster, much more solid feel. And the arrow flight trajectory is a whole lot flatter. I’m never going back.
    So yes, if you’re gonna shoot 60# get the 60# bow!

    Dan, the only thing your giving up is KE, your speed stays the same. Let’s say @ 60lbs with 300gr. arrow your pushing 280fps. @ 70 your still pushing 280fps but you have more KE because of a 350gr. arrow. You have to ask yourself, do I need that much KE? most of the times not, IMHO. I would get the bow in 50/60 and buy a second set of limbs for hunting season if you felt the need for more KE.
