Me a buddy of mine and my 24 year old son were shooting 3D yesterday and having a great time. My son shoots 80 lbs and My buddy was watching how fast those arrows were moving and made the comment Wow, I want to shoot 80 lbs. Then of course you get some loudmouth from another group that just has to put in his 2 cents and ask, why are you shooting 80lb's, what are you hunting and so on. Why can't you just shoot what you want to shoot and be left alone? My son shoots 80lb's because he can, and that's what he likes!!! He has killed more deer with a bow than most I know starting with 30 lbs at 12 years old.
