I have shot in the upper 50#s and lower 60#s for 20 years. Summer before last, I suffered with some nerve damage in my lower neck and out into my right shoulder. Docs told me that I had broken my neck at sometime (years ago, but I never knew it) and that some disc degeneration was going on. It was suggested that I give up shooting! I started PT and added some weight routines and the Docs agreed that I could still shoot, but to keep the weight down around 50#. Doc Ashby’s work wih EFOC has been a real benefit for me and as long as I keep up with the therapy/weights, 52# is very doable. If I do get to hunt Moose in the future, I will shoot a heavy EFOC arrow and go for a close, broadside shot! Mike
