    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!
