Last time I checked it was set at 56#. That's plenty and much easier to draw on cold days (especially after sitting for hours in a stand).

50#, you don't need more than that if you do your part.

Hey bugsNbows you must travel around and hunt all over if your pulling your bow back in the cold because it says on your info that your from Florida. Any way I am drawing 63 but going to back it down to 59-60 a little easier in the stand and like bugsNbows says when it's cold a little easier.
