    Well the 2011 and 2012 are basically the same, especially since I've upgraded to a rod/slide instead of the TRG. With that said, specs are in the sig

    Remember that I have a shorter draw and heavier arrow than IBO. I'm pretty certain that the Onza will reach IBO speeds if set up properly.

    2011 Onza 3: 70#, 28.25 draw (AMO), 384 gr arrow, 288 fps
    2005 Saber: 70#, same arrow, 250 fps

    Oh no doubt it will reach ibo, but the question is... not that im a speed freak but more of a curious george, anyway what do u think i can get with a 60 lb onza at 60 with a 29 inch draw and a 352 grain arrow? i was thinkin around 290 thats just a guess though.

    Mine is a 2011 and at last check with a loaded string , 29" DL and at 73lbs .......pushing a 395grn arrow it was consistantly shooting 295fps. Im gonna recheck it this weekend becuase I changed the cable slide last night to a hyper-glyde and my 20yrd groups are now an 1" low.

    Made a few changes to the Onza while ago and actually picked up around 5 fps. So now with a loaded string and my hunting arrows its shooting 300-301 fps.......Im pretty happy with that!

    With my 2011 Onza set at 70#, 28.25 True draw, 383 gr. arrow, I'm getting 302 fps. Peep, D-loop and whiskers on the string. I haven't chrono'ed my 60#'er yet, but plan to do so soon. I would guess your estimate should be pretty close. You should be shooting 285-290 if the bow is tuned well.
