I just got an 09 Moab and the weight listed in all the literature is 3.5 lbs. I weighed it on 2 different digital scales and got 4.2 lbs. I'm a little dissapointed because one of reasons I bought this bow was its physical weight. I even took off the STS and it weighed 4.1 lbs. So how are they weighing their bows?

Yeah, I know. This is not uncommon. Like with the IBO speeds, they are listing a very refined #. They probably take off the grip, the VEM's, the STS, and everything else they can that is not necessary for the bow to fire.

If its any consolation, most bow companies do this to some extent. The was a thin on huntersfriend.com about a contest between 2 bows, and they evaluated EVERYTHING! There was a Champion Diablo, and a Bowtech Liberty I think. Both weighed in at well over ther advertised weight.
