Default 70vs80lb limbs

Anyone shot both in the rx4 ? Toying with the idea of 80lb limbs and new arrow build

I think it’d be pretty cool to have, but dread the idea of pulling it back first thing in the morning if the opportunity presented itself.

I have been using 80# bows. But this season was the end of them for me. I am 70, and I can feel it...I might get me a new bow this year, and it will be a 70#. And from what I'm seeing and hearing, from 60# up will do just about anything that needs doing....

I have 80 lb limbs on my Pse when the replacement limbs were wrong and came in 80 instead of 70. I didn’t think I’d like it, much less pull it; I use a hinge and don’t have any issues.

Shot a doe in January and when the arrow hit her, it was like i shot her with a 30-06

if you love archery and shooting . don't ware out your shoulder shooting high pondage just because you can now. one day later in life you will think back and say to yourself WHY did I do that ? take that from someone who knows first hand .
that is just the opinion of a guy that been shooting a long time.
