When I was building bows for the public back in the earlie 2000’s I was seeing that trend coming and coming fast. If I built a bow over 55# it took sometimes several months to move it. It hadn’t reached the low weight range it is now because 40 to 45#er were just as hard to sell. Anything I had in the 47#-55# range very rairly came home with me after the shoots.
This is the reason I still build my own bows. If I want more weight I just build it.
It also probably has to do with much of the trad hunters getting older and if in doing so they accumulate injuries or develop arthritis, they do it for the lack of pain. At least that is why I have gone to lesser draw weights.
