    I would say about 240fps. You have a lot of weight on the string.

    240-250...too much weight on the string, and your arrow is way to heavy for 60# if you were shooting 70# you might get to 255

    How come everybody beats me to it. I was going to say 240, but now I have looked better and have to say about 235. Hey, we all take a shot at something different maybe one of us will be right.

    Hmm i say that is correct too. You could pick up about 2-3fps by getting rid of that rest tho. I know people who like them but i have one and its got quite a bit of dust on it lol

    got it set up this evening. got rid of the nock completely and just went with a d-loop, G5 peep, and leeches. went with a whisker biscuit. crono'd at 273fps. dropping to a lighter arrow soon. going to something in the 8.5gpi range with the rages, 2" vanes, and speed nocks and see what i can pick up off that set up. oh yeah they got it cranked up to 63 aswell.

    my 09 bengal on 70# shot a 375 grain arrow at 29inch draw at 274fps?

    im going to shoot lighter poundage and arrows and see if it shoots any better with like 60# and closer too a 300 grain arrow to see if it shoots faster or slower than on a70# with the 350 grains.

    Does anyone know it a bow shoots better on lower # or higher on the 09 Bengal?
