    Did you try one in a shop somewhere? The website lists the draw length out to 30.5" Somewhere on here there were threads about the measurements being off for DL. Post some photos when it come in and welcome to the forum.

    Speed is subjective to the user, and most people's setups do not come close to IBO. This isn't because of a problem with the bow, but because of variances in setups; longer/shorter draws, heavier/lighter arrows, weight on the string including peep, d-loop, silencers, etc. As you can see from my sig, I don't come close to IBO speed with my Onza but I have a short draw, and shoot a heavier arrow.

    Ike Outdoors originally tested the Onza with his personal settings, which are far shorter than IBO test setups. Martin sent him another Onza setup at IBO to test. You can see both video reviews here:

    That is a lot of speed on the kinetic energy that arrow is putting out. Poor deer!!!! it ain't got a chance

    Yup they say 72.4 Ft/Lbs of KE. I am going out again this Sunday in the AM to take advantage of a cold front that is here for the next few days. I would be out on Saturday but my girls have basketball camp/clinic on that day.

    I have a 2011 Onza set at 73# draw, 28.25 inches. Shooting a 383 gr. arrow @ 302 fps.
    My other Onza is a 2011 at 60# draw 28.25 inches. Shooting a 365 gr. arrow @ 289 fps.
    I have shot both bows through 2 chrono's, and got the same readings on both, so I know they are accurate.

    2008/12 Firecat 60#--- 2010 Warthog 70#
    2009 Warthog 70#
    2010 Strother SR-71 65# & 2012 Strother Rush 65#
    2012 Strother SX Rush 60# & 2011 Strother Infinity 70#

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.
