I pull 68# only because thats what it was at when i bought it, but was thinking about dropping to 60#. Just curious what others are pulling.

I also pull 68#s... I would crank it up higher but thats all shes got :D.

One more twist of the string and I could probably get 70.

I shoot 63# and it is as low as it can go. I had it up to 73 but I dont feel I need any higher than 63#. It is plenty fast and goes right through. Easier to draw when excited, the better!!!

If you want to drop to 60 go ahead that is still plenty. I felt 73 was overkill.

58# here,i feel less poundage = less vibration/shock and ultimately Noise! Stealth will beat speed any time! when i was in my early 20's i felt maxed out bows was where it were at Lol!

82#'s That is what it has been since they strung it. I wouldn't mind backin it off a little but dont want to sacrifice speed. I dont have enough experience with them to know the benefit or draw back either way.

I shoot traditional archery bows, recurves and longbows. My two recurves are: 42# @ 30" & 37# @ 30". My hybrid longbow is 41# @ 30". I've been shooting light poundage trad bows for decades. They all get pass throughs on deer since I shoot heavy aluminum arrows with 2 blade glue on broadheads. My favorite broadhead was a 145 grain Bear Razorhead, but since those broadheads aren't made anymore, I've switched to a 145 grain STOS broadhead.
