I AM RELOCATING TO NORTHERN IDAHO. THERE REGULATIONS REQUIRE THAT A BOW HAVE NO MORE THAN 65% LETOFF. I JUST PURCHASED A NEW LEGACY AND I NEED TO KNOW IF THE LETOFF CAN BE CHANGED. ANY HELP WOULD BE GRAETLY APPRECIATED.

IF IT CANT BE CHANGED IT IS FOR TRADE OR SELL.

i guess the next logical question would be, does the law in Idaho go by manufactuer specs or actual measurement?? i would bet manufacturer spec, but if p&y will take it, will Idaho. any idaho residents out there know?? easton94

Thanks guys, I just checked out the url that Shooter Mike gave me and Mathewssays it is legal in all states.
Thanks for all the info!!
I love my bow and was really hating the thought of trading or selling it.

There are Two (2) different ways to measure a bows Let-Off recognized by the
Archery Manufactures Organization (AMO)
The first is the Standard AMO let-off which is given by the following formula.

AMO % Let-Off = ((PWdc - HWdc)/ PWdc) * 100
Where: PWdc = the Peak Draw Weight on the draw cycle of the draw force curve.
HWdc = the Holding weight on the draw cycle of the draw force curve.

The Second is Effective Let-Off( Hysteresis ) - ( that which the archer actually experiences)

Effective % Let-Off = ((PWdc- HWrc)/ PWdc) * 100
Where: PWdc = the Peak Draw Weight on the draw cycle of the draw force curve.
and HWrc = the Holding weight on the relax cycle of the draw force curve.

AMO suggests that all listed Let-Off's be correct within 5%
Note: All Let-Off's are determined using only the true draw weight of the bow and do not
include the physical weight of the bow being tested. (i.e.: the bow must be drawn in
such a manner that the physical weight of the bow does not effect the results.)

P & Y Measures actual let off same as some western states. The actual let off of your Legacy cam is 65%.
