I would agree with that too. There are so many very efficient designs to choose from now (and other related improvements), that I believe that for most applications, there really aren’t significant gains to me made above #60, which can’t be made up in other ways (string choice, arrow weight, etc) that still allow one to use an easier drawing bow that will still get just about anything done. Why pull more weight than you have to?
