    :D Ok here we go :^O

    I’m not going to get into draw length, ATA, Speed, draw weight, Etc that many others get into–just a simple suggestion :thumbup

    Over half of my shooters are “veteran ” shooters –Baby boomers and “pre” boomers like myself :^O

    90% of my shooters are around the 64-67 lb weight bows-all Mathews :thumbup –Now many of the 60 lb limb shooters bows max out at 62 Lbs and the 70 lb limb shooters have to back off to the comfort range of 64-67 lb range.

    The 60 lb shooter would like max out at 64 -so would some of the 70 lb shooters [which they can achieve]

    Many want to shoot their Mathews bows at max out poundage for maximum efficiency as the bow was designed.

    Many that shoot Mathews bows maxed out at 70-74 lbs are shooting bows way too “heavy” for them.

    So some shoot a 60 lb bow maxed out at 61 Lbs which many think is too light.

    -Personally my comfort weight is 67 lbs–

    yes its true that we can tune the bow at max and drop down to comfort zone with a high percentage efficiency,.

    But because we want the bow as close to max efficiency ……………..

    Here is my suggestion
    WE NEED A 65 LB LIMB Mathews[/u:2wz0bq2m]

    Maxed out we would max at approx 67 lbs
    And turned down only minimum drop is needed for the 64 range crowd.

    what do you think???

    I don’t need it.
    My 60 lb. Legacy is set at about 57 lbs. Not bad for my 57 year old body :thumbup
    But hey……I’m all for it.

    I only backed my XT down so I don’t blow through the targets so much while practicing.

    I’ll be maxing it out the last month before hunting season starts.

    I don’t have a need to stop at 65#.

    Sorry, that’s a No Vote.

    I don’t see R&D doing anything like that. I just don’t see the need for three different sets of limbs in a ten pound range!

    With the new parallel limb sys to get max efficiency is not necessary to max out the limbs.Because it doesn’t change BH.On older bows it got us closer to the design BH to get max out of the bow.Not needed now.

    This is correct. I think I posted here before that we have tested a 60# bow “maxed out” versus a 70# bow turned down to 60#. The bows performed the same. The max performance at “maxed out” limbs was something that occurred in the past with non-parallel limb bows, and with bows that didn’t have very much pre-bend in the limbs. Just imagine a bow that only had a couple inches of pre-bend, you back that off a bit, and you limbs are not operating efficiently. Today’s bows the limbs may have around 5″ of prebend at brace, so backing down 10 pounds still has the limb in its functional operating range, and being parallel, you basically lose next to nothing on brace/draw length. So, just turn your 70# down to 65# and enjoy it! :thumbup [=}=]
