    In the low 30's but although I did measure it once I can't remember at the moment. They are 30lb limbs rated. I went down from 32lb limbs that were around 36 at my draw length.

    Most of my shooting is at 20 yards indoors and as long as the arrow doesn't hit the ceiling I would rather shoot 100 arrows plus at a time and not worry that I will feel it the next day.

    With the 32 lb limbs I could not shoot 80 meters with my set up because i would shoot through the front sight. At 90 meters the sight was under the arrow! I could have changed the sight but I usually don't shoot those distances.

    The shop I shoot at has many holes in the cieling mostly from people that want to be macho and draw more that is comfortable for them.

    With my target coumpound many people ask what my draw weight is and I tell them something like 52.5.

    I add the .5 for giggles to make them think that I am serious.

    How does it shoot through paper? how do the arrows group at the target? Questions like those determine much of how I set the bow up and the draw weight.

    I thought this post from last year might be of interest & more appropriate here for updating. https://sharprazorpalace.com/worksho...ml#post1831920

    I had a second delamination soon after. This time on the opposite limb .

    So for the past year or so I have made hundreds of shots, maybe more & no problems with the 2 repairs or any other delaminations. I cannot make any forecasts but so far so good.
    One odd thing I noticed is I draw it at 29” & if the original weight was marked 60# @28" it is now 66.4# at my draw length. The draw is smooth . It is not a sudden stacking. Maybe the new epoxy causes this but I'm not disappointed
    That G Flex epoxy is the bees knees in my book.

    The 2 off paper. Were they the last 2 shots ? I find that happens to me. Lose concentration or get gold shy as I go.

    Can’t remember...I was thrilled to hit the paper..lol....come Nov. I should be dialed in....practice practice...the 48 pounder was easier on the shoulder. Just have to build up the shoulder....like a pitcher in baseball.

    Yeah the 48# will feel too light in no time.
