Ok, just want to do some research.

Height: 5'8"
Weight: 130 lbs (yes I'm pretty skinny for the average american guy)
Draw Weight: 47#

Old Bow:
Diamond RaptureLITE 2006. Love this bow. Learned to do all the tuning, string changing, form, etc. I made a good choice when decided to get into Archery.

Actual Bow: Commander 2008. Just got it. I still need to get used to it. Coming from the RaptureLITE, this thing is impressively heavy, but boy it stays STATIC in my hand when aiming. I still need some new arrows to have a complete set, perfectly matched for it, but those will come in February for my birthday... in the meantime, I'll get used to it ;)

What about you guys?

With my old single cam Champion bow I was shooting 240fps. I have no idea what the hoyt will do, but I'm guessing 10-15fps faster. So I'm guessing 250-255fps. When I get new strings on and get it all tuned up, I'll find a chrono to run it through. I think I figured my arrows to be around 360 grains. My arrows are 25.5" long.

Height: 5'8"+

Weight: 190 :eek::eek::eek:

Draw Weight: 50 lbs.

Old Bow: Hoyt Kobalt set to 26.5 - sold it. Was shooting a Victory VForce HV's @ 285 grains, 270fps.

Actual Bow: Well...I'm shooting a 27.5" DL Alpha Max set at 56 lbs. DW, that belongs to my friend for now.
But, I'm expecting a new Maxxis 35 any day...DW 50-60 lbs. 27" DL that I'll set at 50 lbs. to start off with. I freaking can't wait!!!!!!!!!!

27.75 AMO draw is where I'm happiest with my favorite release and a short loop.

Draw weights between bows 60-70, plus or minus. 50 lb. limbs for my recurve in the closet too.

190 lbs. (but I'd like to be at 175-180, because those flippin' pull ups are far harder than they should be, so i know it's not just bone, muscle, and organs :(
