I've got a Silencer.....29.5DL 63# and it shoots 380gr arrows at 303fps and 400gr at 298. IT'S FAST!!!:D

I'm in the process of fine tuning my bow. Mudpig has been guiding me through the process and I'll tell you what, he knows what hes talking about and is very knowledgable with tuning the Silencer. Just from the first tuning session, I've gained 22FPS. I'm hoping to get it fully tuned today. Lets all cross our fingers for me :D lol

Thanks for the plug Kyle, but I'm simply passing on the info I was given by so many on this site. Thanks for all the help on my bow and the knowledge of the workings of this bow so I can pass this info on to others. Thanks guys! By the way, I just purchased my second Silencer bow. This one in the 70# version, so I'm waiting on sights and things to arrive in the mail and I'm getting this one dialed in too :cool:

If you check out the link below, it will take you to back country archery calculator. You can plug in your DW, DL, and arrow weight and get a pretty good indicator as to what you can expect. My Silencer is spot on. I used my arrow weight of 380gr with your DW and DL and came up with about 290fps on this calculator.

I've used this calculator, too, and would recommend that you list the IBO speed at 10 fps less than the factory says. You'll get an estimate closer to real world figures.

Just picked up my new Silencer yesterday and agree its shoots extremely fast compared to my 04 PSE STL which was chrono at 245 fps 2 wks ago. However, the battery must have been weak or the chrono just wasn't working properly while testing the new Silencer. Gave me readings anywhere from 225 to 278 fps??? Tried 6 times. I did try the online calculator for kicks & giggles and it was estimating 318 fps? So even if i take off the 10 fps for real world numbers, i will be extremely happy if it really does shoot 300+ when the chrono is up and running properly.

i would guess 285-290 at 27.5 and a 390 grain aarow. probably closer to the 285. and of course dropping the aarow weight will gain a few fps back

Just got mine and in the process of tuning for a combination of performance and less shock. I have a long way to got and don't yet have a chronograph(on the way). This bow seems very fast unfortunately I have not accomplished the second priority. I don't know if I've just been spoiled by the dead shot of the AX and Nemesis or whether I have not hit the sweet spot on the Silencer yet.

64.7 lbs., 28" DL, stock strings(long servings) 2 Bowjax in-string silencers loop and tru-peep: hunting arrow 366grains 276 FPS, light arrow 328 grains 296 FPS. I think that's pretty good!
