    A tweak here and there and you will be surprised.

    Yeah Hutch, but you shoot left handed so everything is going to be a bit slower than normal. LOL.

    Don't think I can get my bow to its ibo 315 to 320fps. I think for my dw and length that is it. But I bet Speedy that xforce was fast 315fps is just right for shooting. Just think some are 345fps insane

    The strings look great Bill. I'm very happy with the strings you made for me. When my bow shop placed the strings on....he stated watch out I think those strings are gonna stretch on you. I didn't say anything back. I have over 400 shots on the bow now and i' m getting ready to Bh tune before I get ready to go out hunting in Sept. I haven't had any stretch or rotation on the strings you made me. I didn't even have to adjust my sight for anything. It's same as I had it before my bow blew. I'm at 284 fps with 371 grain arrows with a 28 inch draw at 60 pounds.

    Indeed the 284 I think is really impressive for the 315-320 rating. Now if I can pick up some extra out of mine (320-330) following Bill's lead I'll be tickled to death. Might be able to do some of the smaller stuff minus the new threads now and see where that take me.
