      There is really no need anymore. Todays 60 was yesterdays 70. It seems that a lot of people now shoot higher rated IBO bows at lower poundage that average performing bows at a higher weight.

        The above is demasculine propaganda. Even though I'll snicker, I'll let 60 slide on the 3d course, but hunting...I can't do it.

          Agreed I do not see a reason, shot 80lbs for years, then 70lb, now an unmanly 60. But my arrow shoots just as flat and flatter from my 80lb days and goes just as far through the deer.

            also have another point of view. 60 pounds are relatively easy to handle ... 70 pounds are too large. We know that lowering the poundage of a bow from 70 pounds to 65 (adjusting screws) does not make it. Raise the "power" of an 60 pounds by turning the cable does not lead to large increases.
            No manufacturer brings to the market bows at just 65 pounds?

                I've had 2 70lb Answers come in. They can be had for the asking but if I were just deer hunting out of a tree I wouldn't be shooting more than 60.

                    I' m glad to hear, when I came in U.S.A I'll buy what I need.
                    In Europe, the choice is very limited, importers are limited to the usual 4-5 brands.
                    Already difficult to find a Bear or APA. Imagine a 65 lbs!

                      I turned my man card for 70# bows a while back and my shoulders continue thank each and every time I shoot but I am also 43 not the strapping 23 year old I once was...aging tends to have its way with knees and shoulders.

                        My 70 pound Answer is backed off to 65#. That is just what I like to shoot. I'm trying to find a set of 123def. limbs to make it a 65# max bow so I'll likely sell or trade the 114's (70# on Answer) when I find some.

                            Ya and they are probably all in Ninja too. That is all I am finding are Ninja bows.

                              I believe Elite stated they started with all Ninja's in 60 lb with 28" & 29" mods, then they went from what I have heard and it could be wrong and started making AT & camo Answer's in the same configuration. All the 70 lb Answer's and different mods were run later, again from what I heard most wanted 60 lb bows since the speed loss is minimal against a 70 lb Answer.
