Good Lord! Why not just put a come-along on that sucker, instead of a release? You must be able to use 1 pin out to 40 yards!

Actully, I have shot my bow at 72 lbs. I went to a 3D tourney once and my bow tech wanted me to try it. I agreed. My 20 yd pin was good out to 32 yds, BUT I was so stinkin' sore after I was done! Oooo doggies! I don't think my shoulders forgave me for a whole week!

Now, I typically start my season at 60lbs. Because cold weather makes bow limbs stiffer, I drop a couple of pounds once the cold hits. I usually don't go lower than 55lbs. This is the range that's comfortable for me. It's easy for me to pull and I'm not struggling, which is a big deal, to me.

My personal opinion is that if you have to struggle to draw your bow, or if you have to point your bow toward the sky to draw, it's WAY too heavy, and you need to back the weight up. A person should be able to draw their bow smoothly, in the sitting position, straight back.
