Mine is set at 63 lbs. It's all I need for around hear, plus it's one of the most quiet bows I've been around.

Anyone else found lighter pound limbs are more quiet?

It seems my 65 lb limbs are more quiet backed out 3 turns instead of my 70 lb limbs backed out 3 turns.

Have you ever tried Grim Reaper Razortips? They are a great head for lower KE set ups.

I got 65 lb limbs for my Hoyt. I've got it set at 59 lbs and shoots like a dream.

I don't believe I will ever own a 70 lb bow again. I get 67 lbs KE with my Spyder drawing 59 lbs, plenty for deer and much easier to shoot.

I'm glad I made the change and will likely get 60 lb limbs on my next bow. Love shooting the lighter weight.


Is it the carbon spyder? I shot one if those while in camp in Ohio and if I weren't such a Bowtech guy.. I'd own one! Heck of a shooter!

60# feels great but I like more holding weight personally. On the bows I own right now, I need 70# to get the holding weight I like.

I have shot 70 lbs. for years and don't plan on changing. Maybe when I get older and carry my wife's purse.
