    How much would it cost to switch from 70 lb limbs to 80 lb limbs on my Guardian?

    probably a chunk of change. you'll need to find out if the limbs are same length. might have to get new strings and cables.....on top of limb costs..

    I'm not sure if I do or not. I find the Guardian is such an easy bow to draw that moving up to 80 lbs would be a nice option.

    I've been shooting this bow for a few weeks, dozens and dozens of shots at a time. I swear my bow arm gets tired before the drawing arm. I had heard it had a somewhat harsh draw cycle, even talked to MeanV about it.

    This thing is butter, but I am used to the pure speed bows.
    Yesterday I almost called Bowtech to see if the numbers on the limbs were really for 70 pounders, then I put it on the scale, 71 pounds. I probably won't switch, part of the reason being I just bought, cut, and fletched a dozen new arrows and they would be underspined!

    I love this bow, and just figured I'd look into it.

    Plus don't forget, I only have to pull it 27 1/2 inches!

    Geez, 80# ?
    Why not check out the PSE X-Force or whatever PSE it is that flings IBO speeds around 340+ ? Yeah, I know a new bow is more expensive than buying new limbs but resale is something you need to keep in mind. Who would want to buy a bow that had an 80# draw weight ?
    I used to use a PSE Carerra with 70# draw and 50% letoff that belonged to somebody else.... That was a real beast to shoot.
    I can't imagine shooting 80#.

    Good luck with that bud,

    Ron
