    It may not be shooting 300+ fps, but I think 270 isn't too bad(I am not a speed nut anyways). My 2007 Jaguar is rated for 310 IBO.

    Are you sure your not using a magic chrono..........not bad for that bow. I had one with single dyna cam pretty nice bow.

    That is really good! My "SPEED" bow shot 271 fps at 27.5" and 56# with a 335 grain arrow. I would say your bow is doing excellent since it is supposedly 35 fps slower than my FC400.

    I'd say that's a darn good speed. I'd hate to guess how many deer have fallen over the years to bows shooting less than that. It's all about hitting the sweet spot.

    BTW I wasn't complaining about my bows numbers, I was just saying how impressive Arrow Splitter's numbers were. With my short draw and low weight that I tested it at I didn't think mine were that bad.

    Your numbers are excellent as well. Mine could be even faster if I wasn't shooting small trees. LOL

    I will have to get mine checked again at some point. I have slightly heavier arrows and shoot it maxed out now.
