Will you get faster speeds out of your bow if you set it to its peak weight? Say your bow is 50-60lb draw weight, and you cranked it all the way up. Compared to the same bow with 60-70lb draw weight and you matched the weight you got out of the 1st bow. Would they shoot the same speed, or will one shoot faster than the other?

From what I understand....assuming the arrow weight is kept at 5 gpp, the 60 pound bow will be about 3-5 fps slower than the 70 pound bow. This is due to the 70 pounder being slightly more efficient

Normally a 50 to 60 lbs bow at 60 will shoot a little faster than a 60 to 70 lbs bow at 60. It really depends on the bow and limbs. Barnsdale limbs dusually shoot the most efficent at peak weight. NOW 3 TO 8 FPS OR MRE DIFFENCEMAY SEEM LIKE A LOT TO SOME AND ALMOST KOW DIFFERENCE TO OTHERS. sORRY ABUT THE CAPS, TO LAZY TO RETYPE.
