That's what my bow says, 70 pounds max. Right now with new strings and cranked down I'm only hitting 65. With the factory string I was hitting 63. I sent them an email, and have had no reply yet, it's only been 2 working days. The bow is an 07, and I bought it new last spring from the guy on ebay. H'e in Wala Wala Washington, he sells a bunch of them, so I'm guessing he's an outlet store of types. But I'm kinda bummed that it's only hitting 65. The limbs are not touching the riser, I can still see some light under them, not much, just enough to keep them off the riser.
So what gives? Why only 65?? No it's not the scale, it's been tested.
