    Nope. Don’t have any use for them. 70 does everything (and more) than I need.. :thumbup

    NO, there is not tat much of an advantage for this. Plus, I want to be able to pull that thing on a really cold morning.

    Actually what I want is a 60-80lb bow but yes I want an 80lb bow for next year regardless who makes it.

    80lb bow with a 320-340 IBO and a 500 grain arrow plus a huge Aftershock 2.75 Mech Head equals destruction on a Thermonuclear Level. :D

    I voted no.I truly feel that I would not be able to draw it back after sitting still in my tree stand for 6 hours in 30 degree weather.And if I did I would probably need to “sky” the bow on draw anyway.Think about this too,if you had 80# draw and had an 80% let-off cam,Then what you would be holding at full draw would be fairly unmanageable too.JMHO [=}=]

    80# x .20 (80%) = 16 lbs holding wt. Not enough to guarantee consistency of the shot IMHO

    70# x .35 (65%) = 24.5 lbs holding wt. :X

    Only a wuss would shoot 80 lbs at 80% letoff … You don’t want the Trad guys making fun of you, eh? :^O :^O :^O

    I actually prefer 50% letoff on a 70lb bow. :D

    28lbs holding weight sounds relaxing. [=}=]
