Can you please tell me how you calculate your limb weights ?
The reason I ask is that I have just purchased a set of Ex Power limbs 68" - 36lb, to go with my CXT riser. They arrived on Wednesday and today I set them up and tuned my bow. You can imagine my surprise when after winding off the poundage to the maximum allowed on my CXT, I measured my draw weight using two different bow scales and got weights of 41.1 lb (using digital scale) and 40 lb (using mechanical scale). My draw length is 28 1/2 inches and I really can't understand how these limbs can possibly be 36lb, even though they are clearly marked as such and are what I originally ordered.
My main issue is that I cannot possibly use these limbs at this weight and want to know what I am supposed to do next? It's not just that the weight is too much for me, but also that my 2 sets of ACE arrows will not be correctly spined for this poundage.
