Of course it doesn't, unless you write the proper details on the right column in the white blocks!!


JB,
you should be getting about 287fps

'Welcome!

Unless you get a chrono for yourself,... you can use this site to get an idea of how much fps you might gain or lose every time you make any changes on your bow setting, arrow weights (vanes, wraps, etc), field point/broadheads weights and so forth. Write it down in the proper blocks.

Good luck to ya' and enjoy your new bow! :)

Ok, for giggles I punched in my numbers just they way I shoot the bow. The wwebsite above says my bow is shooting 256 fps.

Three different chronographs say my bow is shooting 240 fps.

As I've always said, "So much for crunching numbers".

Yeah i think the website may be a little off, i was shooting 285 wit my firecat, and it said i should be shooting 295, oh well, close though

Hey , don't shoot the messenger! :( I said it would give ya and "approximately" fps. :rolleyes: No formula is more accurate than a chrono of course.
