to change the let off you need to change the draw mod... say for instance you shoot an f7 it would be 80% and if it said f7/ it would be 65%.. pretty simple really to change...

when i bought the bow it says 80% let off and it has a f7/ so is this a mistake?

f7/ is 65% that is what is on my bow also... f7 is HL (high let off 80%).. and the f7/ is 65%... I have a couple extra f7 mods if you would like one.. they are 80%. I have checked both and the f7/ is in fact the 65%.. so if that is what you have you are set if that is the let off you are looking for...

Your arthritis can't be that bad if you're still shooting 70#. Why don't you consider shooting less poundage and staying with the 65% mods? They will give you a slightly smoother roll-over which will be easier on the shoulders.

If your arthritis is that bad you're not helping yourself any. Just causing more wear and tear. I know. Been there and done that. Took me a long time to find out that 55-60# kills anything in North America just as dead, and with better accuracy.

Understand. I have the same problems. That's why I order my bows to max out at 55#. It keeps the rigging tighter and keeps me in the higher level of efficiency. More speed for pound. Not a lot, but at 27" I need all the help I can get. Especially for 3D. For hunting I don't really care about speed. There isn't much difference in trajectory at 25 yards between 280 fps and 260 fps.

Just a thought for your future purchases.

Feel for ya, buddy. I can say my problems aren't that bad. I'm dealing with a bad drawing shoulder right now. Can't even draw 40# and when I can roll it over the bow is down at aboutthe 4 o'clock position and I can't lift it up. I don't have pain drawing--just no strength due to muscle atrophy in the shoulder and upper back (left side).

I'm going through a bunch of tests now, and it's pointing toward a disk problem (cervical). I get an MRI later today. So at least it looks like my problem is correctable and temporary. Just a matter of when and what to do to correct it. Surgery? Who knows? I've already had two disks repaired and fusion pnce, all within the last 17 years. So the knife doesn't scare me anymore.

Worse comes to worse I can start shooting left handed. I can draw my 55# pretty easily that way. Feels wierd, but it's just a matter of retraining the body. Besides, I'm left eye dominant and should have swapped hands 30 years ago.

Oh, and by the way----GO STEELERS !!!!!!!!! LOL.

You ever need any help just check in. I'm on here a couple times a day. Not a pro, but always willing to lend a hand.

Hey pal, wish you luck.

New Hampshire? You gotta be kidding. I would have thought Texas. You should be a Patriots fan. Some people I just can't understand.

Thanks for the offer, but I doubt that I'll ever get that far north. Not only is my ardor for hunting ebbing as I get older, but so is my tolerance for colder weather. Pushing 60 now.

My other hobby is Scuba Diving and I don't even do that here in Pa. I'm retired and although not wealthy I can afford to travel a bit so I do about 6-8 trips south each year for diving. Usually the Caribbean, like Caymans, Bahamas, Roatan, Bonaire, Curacao, Cozumel, Mexican Riviera, Belize, and recently started going farther west like Fiji and Australia. Every once in a while I plop on down to Florida about 3 times a year.

These places go through a temperature change of about 15 degrees all year and water temps hover around 75 to 85 degrees. Easier on the bones.

Basically, if I'm not shooting a bow then I'm either on a trip or booking another one. Who has time to work? LOL.
