  • is the poundage range the same for the Z28 as it is on the Hunter?

    it has been explained to me that if i wanted to shoot 61 or 62lbs that i need the 60lb limbs that the range of 60 to 70lb in some of these ads is misleading as the bows with 70lb will not crank down to 60 but only about this true of the z28 cam or the pure cam also

    hope i explained tht clear , it makes my head swim a bit lol

    If you want to shoot 61-62lbs you should get a bow that maxes out at 60lbs as you can always get it to tune in the 61-62lb range. These would be 50-60lb limbs. Is this what you are asking?

      If you're asking whether the 70 lb. limbs for a Hunter will be the same on a Z28; No. 70 lb. limbs on a Hunter (105 deflection) are 80 lbs on a Z.

      The range is 10 lbs. for the limbs. Most Elite bows come in 2-4 lbs. over their stated max weight. A 70 lb. bow that comes in at a max of 72 lbs. can be dialed back to 62 lbs. safely, no matter the model of the bow. If you want to shoot 62 lbs. though, see what Texas 10pt. said above.

        You can crank an elite 70# bow down to 55# without any problems but you lose some performance.

          If you want to shoot 62 lbs, or so, you should opt for the 60 lb model. They're capable of a few pounds more than the rated 60 and a bow always shoots better at it's peak than it does when backed down.

            it makes scence to shoot at max poundage of the limb..but what I was getting at is my carnage is a 50-60 and maxes at 64lbs..i can back it down to 50 with no problems and i do for indoor leagues...but when i shot the pure on sat at 60lbs I thought i could shoot it at 65 easy because it pulled so nice..i guess if i go with the z28 i will get the 60lb limbs and hope i can squeek a few extra..i would never shoot 70lbs but i would like to shoot 62 or 64lb if possible.
            thanks for the good info everyone

              You can always buy another set of limbs to make it a 65 lb max. Not sure what number limbs you need but I remember someone saying it was around 121 or 123. Something like that. I was considering going up in poundage, from my 60 lbs limbs.

                You might be surprised by what you can pull with the Z. I am a strict 60lb guy and shoot my 70lb Z maxed out in my 3d league no problem. It pulls silky smooth!
