First, I've been seeing in threads where people are using #s for something. I'm seeing like 5 to 1 and things and was wondering what this means. Never seen this before. Second, what's up with the traditional forum? The listings are from 2010? Nothing from 2011.

The symbol # is most often used instead of writing POUNDS, as in draw weight. Also used instead of NUMBERS, as in deflection numbers for arrows or bow limbs. You just have to interpret it in the context of the discussion.

As for the Traditional forum, I honestly don't know. I'll have to do some checking, but I could have sworn there were 69 threads or so on it this morning. The only thing I did was delete some of the spam that had been reported to me. Hmmmm.

I am typing this while chuckling. I surely hope he isn't refering to # being used in place of POUNDS. Why do I say this? He's used it 3 times in his signature line for poundage of his bows!

As in conversation # before a number is translated as, number five. # after a number is translated as, five pounds.
English one on one. :cool:

After re-reading the post I started laughing myself. If this comes up right this is what I am asking about. http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/showthread.php?t=1433584&page=2&highlight=bow+turbow

I have one I had it on my katera it shot without the turbo 300fps at 70lbs at 5 to 1 with it 322fps at 65lbs 5 to 1. If you are looking to speed your bow yes it works but plan on doing some extra work to get it done right like serving the cables check your spec's and make sure timing is on or it will not work right if you are looking for one I have one and an aluminum cable guard to go with it cause the carbon cable guard will most likely crack and brake

This is what I am asking about. There are quite a few people who have used these numbers ( 5 to 1 ) in different posts I have read from other forums and want to know what they are talking about.

I think I broke the 5-1 code. 5 grains of weight to 1 pound of pull. E.G. 350 grain arrow is the minimum recommended for a 70 pound bow.

I forgot about this post. Thanks MLN1963 for figuring this out. I was going nuts trying to understand what it was. I didn't want to seem stupid but I guess sometimes it's better to ask and hope someone has the answer.
