View Full Version : Cheetah Speed
08-22-2008, 02:14 PM
I am not really worried about speed, just curios what I might be getting. I have an 08 cheetah at 62# draw 27" arrow weighing 430 gr. My draw length is 29". Does anyone know about what speed it will produce? I have a tube peep, no loop, and the factory string sillencers.

Assuming the tube peep and a 430 gr arrow I'd would have to say somewhere in the 220's.

I vote for 230. Now find it out and post the result.

Hmm you guys are really knocking him down:
29" draw -10
string (tube peep, silencers, brass nock) -15
That's 245 ?

I have a 70 lb '07 Cheeta which I bought new in March 2008. I am shooting 450gr arrows, 65lb at 29" draw and I get 245fps:o

If tube peeps rob so much on speed why do they come as a standard in a package for the bows? Do they rob so much because they are attached to the cable? Just curious.
I am pretty new to archery and I am taking it all in.

Tube Peeps are easy to adjust. You just have to connect the tube anywhere and you are fine. The problem is that they are quite heavy and everything on the string makes your bow lose speed. Also the cables or the string can be damaged by the tubing, i have seen several cases where this happens.
If you want to get speed out of your bow you should not shoot a tube peep but if you use a 'normal' peep you will have to tune it and set it until it will move to the same position everytime.
