Question Poundage?

What poundage do you guys shoot for 3D & or indoor? I'm getting a new bow after the 1st of the year and I want to get one that's a little less poundage than my hunting setup of about 65lbs. I don't want to go back to the days of arc'ing them in there either, so it still has to have enough poundage to where the arrow will shoot pretty flat.

I shoot 62# for 3D... that puts me real close to the 280fps mark.

Whoever sold you on the idea that you need poundage to get speed but blwing smoke. With less weight you shoot a lighter spined/lighter arrow. For example, my Martin SlayR/Nitrous cams at 553 and 27.5" draw shoots a 27" Vapor 23 Speed (265gr) at 298fps. 280gr Easton Lightspeed 500 at 294fps. I've got some tweaking to do and will most likely end up at about 305fps with the Vapors. So who needs heavy weight to get speed?
