    Default Pointless Chrono time

    Since it was foggy/drizzly/cold this morning I thought I would set up the Chrony and shoot my Alien Z thru it just because I hadn't yet and was curious to see how it compared to the Alien X. Well once started I just couldn't stop so:
    I shot the same arrow 3 times thru each bow and averaged the numbers.

    The arrow: GT XTH 5575 28.25" 368gn total weight.

    '10 Alien Z 61.5# 29 --------------290.5fps
    '09 Alien X (I) 61.5# 29 ------------295.4fps
    '09 Alien X (II) 52.5# 29 ------------281.5fps
    '09 FireCat 62# 29 -----------------297.5fps
    '94 Firecat M-44G 68# 29 ----------274fps
    '93 Firecat M-44XR 50# 29 ---------216.2fps
    '95 Ultimate Beast 62# 29 ----------262fps
    '92 Pro Safari 62# 29 ---------------245fps
    '01 Jaguar Mag 55# 29 --------------258.1fps
    '95 PSE ThunderFlite 50# 29 ---------227.2fps
    '91 Bear Black Bear 52# 29 -----------216fps
    '09 Martin Tiger kid bow 12# 22 ------73fps
    '?? Damon Howatt recurve 50#@28 ---153fps

    None of it means much but it was better than being in the house.

    What was kind of scary is that some of the old ones just have little flipper rests on them and I shot them all with my release and a carbon arrow.

    And the FireCat 'G' max's out at 88# so I shot it at 68# because I was afraid to do it with the limb bolts turned out any farther...

    The Martin/Nugent Ultimate Beast is the special one because I shot it for 13 years and took 13 deer with it. I've never had a problem with it and it still shoots great.
    My favorite tho is the Alien X.
    Actually both of them.
    The 60#er has got to be the best all around bow I have ever owned.
    The 50# is the most fun to shoot because I can fire hundreds of arrows and still want more.
    It actually impressed me the most when I did this chronomania because if I drop about 30gns off my arrow - it will shoot right with the 60# AX.
    Still more than enough arrow weight for Deer and Turkeys.
    And it is just SO FUN to shoot !!!
