    I have had my LX for some time.  I like everything about it except its peak draw weight is only @ 65 lbs.  My understanding is there are no limbs available for the LX that would make it draw heavier.  I do not want to lighten my arrow and lose the kinetic energy. (11 grains/inch with 100 grain head) My draw is @29  in.  Is there anything I can do to increase the the speed of the arrow without making it lighter.

    please advise

    How long has the current string/cable set been on?? Have you spec-tuned the bow recently??? Idler wheel straight, cam in proper rotation, proper axle to axle and brace height??? all these can and will affect draw weight and over all shooting enjoyment/accuracy. Proper axle to axle is 34 3/4″ if memory serves correct. Check and have all these corrected(along with new string/cable set if older than 2-4yrs) and your draw weight will re-appear. If all these are correct, you may have cracked limbs.  Shoot straight.
