    Ok. Just today my mothers boyfriend who got me into archery adjusted my bow poundage. He knows what he is doing he said it is around 50 now. But other than using some sort of calculator how can you tell what lbs. your bow is at?

    The bow limbs are rated 50-60 or 60-70 and should be labeled as such. A 60 pound limb backed down should be close the 50. A pro shop will have a scale that will show actual poundage set on a bow. I have 60-70 lb limbs and have em backed down to 64 lbs, that's where I'm comfortable shooting at.

      Use a spring scale and pull the bow using the scale. Should give you draw lbs.

          Take the bow to any of your local archery shops, and they will put it on a bow scale which measures pull poundage. You can also purchase items that measure bow poundage from any of the major hunting and fishing retailers. Make sure you can pull it back comfortably, and hold. Even go as far as putting on winter hunting clothes to see if it is still comfortable.
          Hope this helps
