      I agree... I prefer shooting where there is a flat trajectory until just
      past 30 yards so that I barely have to correct for the first two distances.

      However it is getting old how people on the range think I have a 50# due to
      some SCA monster truck attitude. I could care less what poundage people
      use... Personally, if I was going to do that I would own an 80# or above.

      Ok, mild rant over... heh

      It is all about what you are comfortable with and what you want. I prefer
      the flatter trajectory, and I manage the 55# just fine. If a person can draw
      and hold for 5 seconds without any type of shaking, I would say it is safe
      for them.
