What type of speed is the Firecat getting at 26" draw @ 55-60 lbs?

It depends on how heavy the arrow is and what all is on the string to slow it down. Not knowing this stuff it's hard to put an arbitrary figure on the speed. And what draw length are you asking about? You lose about 10 fps for every inch of decrease under 30".

It'll be a while before I know for sure what can be had. I'm sending in my order today, but am only getting 50# limbs and 26" draw. I am quite knowledgeable about getting speed and even at the quoted specs I am confident that I can tweak about 290fps out of the bow with a 3D setup. Maybe about 275 with a hunting rig.

26" draw at about 55 lbs, 350 grain arrow.

Educated guess would be around 275 fps.

That would be awesome.
