I am not sure about the weight of my Switchback but I know it is not light. Here is what all I have on my bow:
Muzzy Zero Effect Next Generation
Copper John Dead Nuts Pro III
Rear Mount Single STS
2 3/4 Chubby Hunter Doinker w/ SIMS Stabilizer Enhancer
10 degree down Quick Disconnect
Brass Dampeners instead of stock Aluminum ones
I believe total weight is between 6.5 and 7.5lbs.

Bow: 4 lb. 3 oz.

Stabilizer: 12 oz.

Sight: 4 oz.

Rest: ?

Quiver: ?

Seeing as how the Arrow Web quiver is a little heavier than others because of it's construction I will say my bow falls somewhere between 6 and 7 pounds, but probably closer to 6 than 7 :wink:

I use my hunting bow for 3Ds as well and it is HEAVY! Really heavy, about 7.5-8#. It is so dead steady on target that the weight is staying for the hunting season, too.

I tried to keep the weight on my bow to a minimum. Just the bow, rest, sight, a lite stabalizer and STS. I have a cat quiver for my arrows so that I do not have to add that weight and sound to my bow. I am guessing about 5 lbs total.

As stated above,the heavier bows/setups will aim much better although they may take some extra effort to haul around the woods!
Im more than willing to pack some extra weight to and from my treestands when deer huntin if its going to make my shooting more accurate,which it does.
The only time I try to shave weight off my bow is when Im elk hunting and trying to cover alot of ground........ most of it going up hill it seems!:rolleyes:

I have a Trykon and with everything on it and 3 arrows in the quiver, its 7pds11oz. I have a 1 pound stabilizer on it, but I like a heavy bow. Its more steady for me.

About 3 lbs. total weight. Recurve with 3 arrows, shooting tab, spare tab, and bracer. Quiver is one I made into my pack ala a horseman's quiver.
I do a lot of backcountry packing, so weight is a big deal for me.
I carry a flyweight tent, sleeping bag, and only the necessary Jeremiah Johnson stuff with me in a lightweight climber's pack (mountain hardwear trance).
High Speed/Low Drag is where it's at when you don't hunt 100 yds off the roadside and don't go where an atv can go.

My fellow bowhunters say my Trykon XL is to heavy it weights around 8 pounds but to me i can hold the bow dead steady. i can't seem to shoot a light bow anymore. but i can out shoot them with my heavy bow, so i don't listen to them. This is for all the guys that shoot a heavy bow, because thats what they like :beer:
