    Default Legal Weight

    Just for clarity, do you guys know what the total legal shaft weight relationshiop is, i think it is compared to draw weight?, and is this different for different organizations? (IBO, ASA, etc?)

    I'm not 100% sure on this and somebody can check the current 2009 IBO rules because I can't right at the moment but

    5 Grains per arrow per pound of draw weight when shooting over 280FPS

    You can go under 5 Grains per pound as long as you donít exceed 280FPS

    Someone check this please but I think I'm right
    The only one that is your competitor is the air between your ears!

    III. EQUIPMENT
    A. Grains Per Pound And Arrow Speed
    1. Arrows must weigh at least five (5) grains per pound of the bowís maximum shooting
    weight unless the archerís equipment qualifies for the exception set out in Paragraph 2
    below. Shooting weight is defined as the bowís maximum draw or thrust weight, as set up
    at the time of competition. A variance of two (2) pounds of draw weight shall be allowed
    for bow scale variation. Equipment qualifying in this paragraph (III.A.1) shall have no
    limit on arrow speed.
    2. In the case where an archerís equipment, when shot at five (5) grains per pound, does not
    generate 280 fps, that archer may shoot arrows weighing less than five (5) grains per
    pound. However, equipment qualifying under this paragraph (III.A.2) shall not exceed an
    arrow speed of 280 fps. A variance of three percent (3%) will be allowed for chronograph
    variation.
