Just shot my bow through the chrono, and got 270 fps. My Jaguar was set at 70 lbs. and 28" draw length. Arrows were 28.5" long and weighed 425+ grains.
It may not be shooting 300+ fps, but I think 270 isn't too bad(I am not a speed nut anyways). My 2007 Jaguar is rated for 310 IBO.

More than enough to take any critter that you're likely to encounter, I've lost count of the deer I've taken with a 47# recurve. And even your young shoulder will will be much happier at 60#'s, Its accuracy that really counts, not power. :D

Of course, I had to see how fast it would shoot.LOL:D

That is really good! My "SPEED" bow shot 271 fps at 27.5" and 56# with a 335 grain arrow. I would say your bow is doing excellent since it is supposedly 35 fps slower than my FC400.

I'd say that's a darn good speed. I'd hate to guess how many deer have fallen over the years to bows shooting less than that. It's all about hitting the sweet spot.

BTW I wasn't complaining about my bows numbers, I was just saying how impressive Arrow Splitter's numbers were. With my short draw and low weight that I tested it at I didn't think mine were that bad.

I will have to get mine checked again at some point. I have slightly heavier arrows and shoot it maxed out now.

That speed should drop any thing in the US...

That speed should drop any thing in the US...You've got that right. With better lighting, the speed was about 5-6 fps less than my original numbers, but I don't call 265 fps bad either.

By the way, Welcome to the Martin Tech forum.
