Just speaking as an older shooter I'd say to get a 60# bow. YOu've been shooting your present bow at 60# and obviously it has served you well. Today's more modern versions produce better speeds and thus more energy for hunting than those from the past. So 60# today might compare nicely with 65# or so a decade ago.

I know a lot of people will buy the heavier bow with the idea they can start out low and work their way up to 70#. Sadly, for most it doesn't work that way. Especially if you're getting a little older. In most cases men are their strongest somewhere in their late 20's to early 30's. It pretty much all downhill after that. Make it easy on yourself.
