I think the IBO standard says the bow is allowed to run 1/2" long in the speed test. Perhaps this has something to do with it...?

But I would still appreciate honesty. Still, I really think that my Onza 3 and Nemesis are both better bows than the Hoyt I had Biggest reason for this is the draw cycle, especially the area between max. weight and let-off.
as far as the weight being over , i know that we're splitting hairs and not exactly in a controlled scientific testing lab, but people frequently purchase a bow based on its size/weight/dimensions. things like that need to be very close. on the other hand if it weighed less than specs i bet most folks wouldnt care .
Well, there's a Martin dealer in my home town, and the Nemesis I ordered from Germany - the postage was only 20€ (would be about $25 or so).
phantoza i bet postage hasnt been exactly cheap to finland for all them martins from washington state, lol..
