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
