    I hunt with 27″ 50# as it is way more than enough for anything on the northAmerica planet. I could pull up to 75# yet, but using that for elk or deer is like taking my 7MM for prairie dogs. A bit of over-kill and not as much fun to shoot. :thumbup

    59# Traded my 70# limbs for black 60# ones since I only shot 60#.

    Now I have a target bow so I don’t target shoot with my Drenalin. I also shoot more often and could easily hunt with 65# now. Wishing I had my 70# limbs back.

    With my current set up, it has been at 70# but, with the new weight broadheads that I’m getting and arrow weight, I will have to turn my Drenalin down a bit to either 65 or 60# to get proper spine for my arrows.

    My hunting rig is set at 70#….. cause I can draw it effectively, in cold temps without any problem……… warm temps, are like buttah..

    Pin settles……. TWAP…. :thumbup
    Lower poundage will definately do ,or have the same effect. yet speaking for myself…. I am able to shoot that poundage, so I do.. :thumbup

    Maybe, down the road, my shoulders will not react the same way as they do now…. The province that dictates the regulations that I must follow, really eases my mind into having a fully loaded X-Bow at the ready.. over corn, and under an Apple tree…. :D :thumbup
