what is the ibo speed of a martin wildcat

Good question, next one please. :P

I think it should be around 300 or 305 but as there is no official number i cannot promise.

I can't give a definitive answer either because I've never heard of the bow. At least not in a Martin lineup. Is this the one that is made for Dick's Sporting Goods?

Yep it's a box store bow. Martin does list it in their spec's for 2008 but not in their catalog. They don't list the IBO rating for some reason.

So what bow does it most resemble? What cam?

I just tried to find it in the online shop of dicks sporting goods but they sell only Bear online. Maybe a picture will help.

I found this.

Hu? Pounds? Britain? o.O

Seems to be the Jaguar so the IBO speed should be around 310 fps

Yeah, but it has the mini MPro not the regular. Not sure what that will give it?

08-18-2008, 07:46 AM
Hm, good Question.

But i do not think that ehre will be much difference, 5 or 10 fps maybe. Not sure in which direction.

Me either. I'm thinking if he really wants to know it's going to take some quality time with a chronograph. They are a worthwhile purchase anyway if he can't get to range with one.

I agree. I hate to make guesses like that because every setup can be so different. It depends on whether a guy knows how to get the most speed out of a given bow, or if the utmost speed is even important. A chronograph is the only way to find out for sure. There are just too many variables, and IBO ratings do not correlate to real world shooting.

And now, the magic answer. The bow is a Jaguar with MPro cam. As noted the one pictured is with the mni-MPro. I would have to guess that IBO would probably be about 10 fps less than with the DynaCam. And this is just an educated guess.
