Maybe I' ll buy the #60 myself....thought I' d grow into 70, but it' s been a little harder than I anticipated. I can do #67-68...but fully cranked leaves me sore. That seems like a very reasonable price as well.

Shooting it at 65 or 68 pounds won' t hurt the bow at all if it' s comfortable for you. I bought a set of ' 02 Patriot limbs off E-Bay for $75.00 and they look brand new. Now I can shoot the daylights out of my ' 02 and save my ' 03 Dually for hunting.

I wouldn' t see a problem with shooting that bow at 60-64 lbs, and if it is more comfortable or happens to bring the spine in perfect for you that' s what I would do. I don' t buy into the whole thing about a bow being more efficient (by any significant amount) with the limbs cranked down than one with heavy limbs backed off ten lbs. There may be a tiny difference and I don' t claim that I can prove it. I think the limbs store the energy you put into them- period. If it' s 60 lbs than it' s 60 lbs, reguardless of what limbs it has. The differences might be a small change in limb geometry having a tiny effect on brace height or maybe it has less vibration cranked tight.

I think you bought the right limbs if you are comfortable shooting anywhere between 60 and 70 lbs., but that' s just my opinion.
