    I think its funny that some people expect to shoot less poundage with a shorter draw length and still hit ibo speeds. It doesnt matter if you have the latest hoyt or matthews bow, if you take them and set them to 63 pounds and a 29 inch draw there is no way to hit those speeds. It isnt martins fault so dont go blaming them.

    then i would have to shoot a 350 grn arrow to be legal. the bow would shoot the same speed.cmon guys stop worrying about the 70lb. thing a 63 lb. bow with the proper weight arrow at 29" shoot shoot about 8-12 fps slower than the same bow at 30" 70lb.,and a 350 grn arrow, not the speeds i'm seeing.

    man you guy just aren't getting it. i'm not saying that i should see 330-340 at my specs, i'm saying that i should see what simple math shows for my specs,figuring the shorter draw length,less draw weight and less arrow weight, my onza should be shooting at least 318 fps.

    Why are your specs different than what you posted on AT?
    A little common sense goes a long way, unfortunately it's in short supply!

    Can you honestly tell the difference just by shooting it? The bow maxes out at 63#, if you want it faster buy one that maxes out at 70#. I personally don't think it's something to worry about.
