I currently have a 30 pound bow which is rather light for me, and I'd like to purchase a new one. I'm guessing 45-50#, but I'm not sure. I'm thinking 60# would probably be too heavy (trying to imagine pulling twice the weight of what I have now), but I don't know about that either. Then again, it might be 40#. I'm 16 years old, 5' 9", 140 lbs, and not quite in optimal physical condition (~25 pushups straight).
I'm not necessarily asking for you to give me a poundage off of those metrics, but I'd like to know what the right weight should feel like when I'm pulling a bow. Also, does it matter if I go for a heavier bow, if I'm planning ahead for when (hopefully) I'm more physically fit? Or should I plan to get a new bow after I "grow out" of the next one?
