    Default favorite let off

    what is your favored let-off for hunting or targets etc?....
    i like a lower let off for targets but then again i have to shoot a lower poundage also. hunting i really like 80% especially if i am shooting much weight at all.

    20 lbs of holding weight for every compound bow I shoot, I generally start with a 65% cam and adjust to get the 20lbs.



    my recurve is 55lbs at my draw length

    Archery is more than a sport, it is a way of life.

    I see all of your answers, but what is it that made you decide on your let-off? Is it the comfort level, the resistance level, improved performace?????

    For me it is the weight necessary for me to hold and execute a solid shot...

    if hunting i want to be able to hold for a bit if neccessary. target shooting i don't want to start shaking indicating too much weight tp hold or too little let-off.
