Interesting. Personally, my #57 recurve is the heaviest I shoot, and I’ve seen no reason to go heavier than that.
On a related note, Rocky Mountain Specialty Gear (bow shop in Colorado & online) recently had a post on their blog regarding their stats with the bows they sell. Among other things that it points out, if you scroll down, is that there is a pretty sharp drop-off in sales of bows above #55. And according to the owner, the vast majority of their bows are sold to hunters, not target shooters.
Personally, I attribute this to more people (re)discovering the virtues of EFOC arrows, rather than compensating with heavy bows…:wink:
