Beater shoulder meant that I replaced my 40# boo LB limbs with some hex5H limbs ... 26#: I had initially predicted 29# with limbs bolts 1/4 out & then with my 31" DL around 35# OTF but had read that hex speed meant that these might come in relatively higher so I reckoned it was worth trying this weight for hunting/stumping & going to my CVS limbs if things didn't play out.

Things worked out differently to what I expected:
1. At full 31" DL the limbs weighed in at 30#
2. Gap marks on my riser were identical to the 40# LB limbs
3. Penetration into target was identical to 40# LB limbs
4. POI for the 40# LB limbs oly anchor split 9gpp was 65m & for the hex5h oly anchor 3under 10gpp was ...85m (yup that is correct)
5. Did a POI test today with hunting weight arrow at 17gpp & got a 50m POI

Looks like a 30# DW hex = a 40# DW LB to me; how do I explain this to the game officer if he checks my bow?

Thx - M.

Pics below show 50m test + last one for fun showing turkey vulture checking out turkey decoys as potential nutrition...

"Bows must have a draw weight of at least 18 kilograms (39.7 lb.) at a draw length of 700 mm ( 27.6 in.) or less"

What's to explain really, other than how to spell your name one the citation?

Interesting. So you are saying there is no official differentiation between bow styles? Do they include compound in the same category?
That's a very impressive advert for Hex performance tho.
Applies to compound, recurve, and longbow.

Moose, elk, and black bear requires a minimum of 48.5 lbs at the same draw length.
