All right fellas,
I bit the bullet today and bought my pro shops last 09 Firecat, yeah for me right? Well first problem is that I want a 70# peak bow and this on is 60# peak on the sticker. My guy says no problem you buy it and I will get you a set of 70# limbs, check that out. Second thing is that even though it is an 09serial it has the C.A.T 2 cams on it!! Franken bow!!!. I traded my 09 Cheetah in on it with all the accessories that came on it(I bought the complete package with case). Outfitted it with new sight rest stabilizer and quiver and we tuned it up. His chrony was on the fritz so no speed yet but it only took six arrows to start touching arrows at 20 yds, will take it out to 30 and 40 tommorrow however my arrows are real heavy at 360gr for my 70# cheetah so i am going to get some 300grs tomorrow as well. First impression of this bow is SWEETTT!!! Im not sure of the Firecat limb deflections so maybe someone can help, it has 13" 2H limbs one has Martin SE on it the other the Firecat Pro-X. please advise if they are in fact 60# max or not. I have it screwed down tight.

300 is really close to that 5gr./lbs. rule, especially because most bows peak 2-3lbs. over their highest weight...i would get some 320 grain arrows first, or at least test your bow to see how many pounds you are actually pulling back...

I should have said 300ish, the ones I got were Easton Flatliners. .500 spine at 6.5gpi and .400 at 7.4gpi to try, mine weighed 315 and 325 respectively. We did scale it today and it was just over 60#. The 500 are one the edge of being underspined but they are FAST, much faster than my Goldtip Expedition Hunters that weigh 362.
