    Default Shooting 60# with a 70# bow

    I know that a bow shoots better when cranked down. But I don't have the $ for a new bow and have a shoulder issue. What can I expect shooting a 70 at 60. Thanks

    If the lower limit of your bow is 60# and plan on shooting there, you will be limiting some of your tuneing options to be in one direction only (can't go down, only up but not a big deal). As far as theoretical efficiency...don't worry about it. In your case, and in the big picture, it means nothing. Hopefully your shoulder will get better soon and you will be able to crank that puppy up and get anal about efficiency.
    Good Luck.
