What can you kill with 60 lbs that you can't kill with 56 lbs?

4lbs isn't an issue. The fact that the bow will not reach the number posted on the limb sticker is, as it points to the fact that something is not within spec.

It sounds to me like "the issue" in the eyes of the guy who started this thread is the 4 lbs. ;)

The guy shouldn't have scaled it then?

The reason i was asking the questions was. I did not know if something was wrong or are some bows this way. I just thought it might max out at 60+ lbs. Thanks for the info...:teeth:

if the string is exactly right and the cables is exactly right then the # should come to 60 but who can say...Adjust a lttle one way or the other and the max pounds could be low, or high or the cams mis timed.
If it shoots well leave it as it it.

Lengthen the string does which again ?
lengthen the cables does ?
It is a balance act.
