Default 80# bows, who makes em?

What bows are available that draw in the 70-80+# range? Not looking for a custom job, or something that I have to special order/purchase without shooting, but something more "off the shelf" as they say. I know the Guardian, and the X-force. What else? Currently I'm shooting a diamond victory and love it, but cant help but feel that if I am going to get a new bow, why not explore the option of something heavier? Not looking for explinations of why not to shoot heavier, or how it doesn't make you any less of a man... Just wondering what options there are out there?

from my experience.. i find only 70lb limbs from stock bows.. i personally have a 70-80lb bow but had to look on ebay for 1.. got a great deal on it.. Hoyt Trykon XL for 500$ brand new.. some people buy them for huntingg large game out west, and dont justify the need for the xtra 10 lbs and sell them.. check there u might get lucky

Find the brand that you are interested in, go to their website and look at the bow specifications, usually it is listed there.

Off the top of my head I know the PSE-Xforce and PSE Dream Seasongo to80 pound bow, along with the Elite GTO goes up to 90, and somewhere in the Elite line up i believe they even have a 100 pound bow (synergy XT, looked it up)......the Bowtech catalog that I have lists only the Guardian as being availabel in 80lbs
