“Draw weight,” of course, means the amount force needed (in pounds) to pull a bowstring to full draw. This is commonly called the bow’s poundage. On recurve bows, poundage increases as the archer pulls the bowstring farther back. In contrast, compound bows use eccentric cams on both limbs to displace poundage to cables, thus making the archer feel the most weight at the start of the draw and much less weight, called “let-off,” before reaching full draw.
