Thanks Brandon and Martin!
    Brandon built my bow according to the sticker. Way to go brandon. No troubles with mine either. Nice bow by the way.

    Wabbit, Not sure how this is happening, but I ran the bow through my chrono this weekend. Says it's only getting 270fps. 59# draw@28.25 True draw, 343 gr. arrow. Now, the weird part......... Using an HHA sight on it, and using the number 31 yardage tape. That's a lower number (smaller yardage gap) than I am using on my Onza or FC400, and both those bows are shooting over 300fps. Replaced the batteries in the chrono, shot again, 270. Can't figure this one out. I decided to start tuning for broadheads. Shot one from 20 yards, dead on. 40 yards, dead on. 60 yards, dead on. Never had to make a single adjustment, and the broadheads are hitting in the same group as FP's out to 70 yards. That was nice. Overall, this is easily comparable to my Onzas that I love so much for overall shootability, it's a bit quieter, although supposedly slower.

    If anyone has any ideas why this is shooting slower, but has a smaller yardage gap, I'd love to hear from you. Gonna drive me nuts until I find out why. lol

    Well Eric this might come off a little weird, or make me sound crazy but here is my opinion, I found with my years of shooting that a heavier arrow drops more from 20-30 yards then a lighter arrow, but as you step back to 50-60 yards the lighter arrow starts to drop significantly more then the heavier arrow. The way i like to think of it is the resistance slowing a feather down going 300 mph is gonna have a greater affect in the long run then the resistance slowing a semi truck down doing 50mph. If you could chrono both arrows at 50 yards away i bet youd be suprised to find out the firecat is faster then your onzas. once again just my opinion do what you want with it . lol
