I just went up and looked at the rules for the IKAC and IKCAC. (The URL
For the IKAC (target shooting), there is no weight limit on bows or
crossbows. There are weight limits in the IKCAC (combat shooting).
There is an Ansteorran combat archery rule which says that 50 pounds is
the weight limit for a bow used with golf tube arrows.
A long bow and a strong bow,
And let the sky grow dark.
The nock to the cord, the shaft to the ear,
And a foreign king for a mark!
