70lbs on the nose. I also own a 60lb bow that I wish was a 70. I still don't know which one will go into the woods with me this year.

I have short arms though... 26.5" dl. So I need all the power I can get. If I had a 30in dl, id likely shoot a little lighter weight.

67.........here, these old shoulders would collapse with anything more! Too many old injuries and like to be able to hold for an extended period of time and draw and let down real slow when those bulls lock up in close.

74lbs, i could do more but that would require a different bow i am assuming 80lb bows are special order? but 80 lbs would be an awful lot after sitting in a treestand in cold weather all day.....i dont do it often anymore, but on occasion still!

I shoot a 60-70 lb bow but I shoot it maxed at 72lbs so I voted 70-80. I'm may try a 70-80lb bow for my next one, not that I feel it's needed but just give it a go and up my arrow weight and still keep the speed I have now.

I have been shooting 65 lbs the last couple years. I might be getting a crx and if I do I'll bump the poundage up a little to about 72 lbs...

I have a vector turbo that is 80 pound and a carbon matrix that is 70 lb. this year I might hunt a little with bow. But prob mostly the matrix.
