    Arrows I got with are carbon Gold Tip HT Hunter 5575, cut @ 26 1/2" where field tip threads into to where knock starts. 27 1/4" from end to end of knock. 100 grain field tips and broadheads. These have the 4" fletching, I bought half dozen of same arrow except they have the short 2" Blazer fletching on.

    Hutch, not sure on ATA, BH....Can you dumb it down...heh unless I answered it.

    Draw length is around 27 i think, using a F-3 mod, draw weight 55 pounds, all the way cranked. You guys rock.
    Well if you buy an STS,you might not need the string silencers(maybe),and a tubeless peep will gain you a few FPS,lighter arrows will gain some more,but loose KE.I am not a fast bow guy,I like mine more quiet and if I loose speed that the price I will pay.Don't get too hyped up on the speed thing,a quiet bow will kill just as good as a fast one.

    Alright here I goFrom the info you gave your roughly at 237 fps,assuming you have GT Expidition arrows and your DL is correct.So if you put an STS on and take off the leeches,put a tubeless peep on,switch arrows to Gold Tip Velocity xt400 with 100gr tip 254 fps,and 80 gr tips to 260 fps.The STS might not make the bow quiet enough,add some cat whiskers.This is all rough calculations using Backcountry Bowhuntiing calculator.Anyone have anything else or I made a mistake feel free to fix.
    Good luck

    Looks like you've got it, only thing I can is if he used 75 gn Muzzys he'd gain 5fps. Want more speed, need more power.

    well thanks for respones again. Not sure if I want to go smaller than 100 grain for killing deer. Maybe stop by bow shop tommorow and see if they have deal on sts and get new peep. At least if I upgrade can take most of the stuff off. Shoots good and like the feel alot.

    Quick ? I am looking for bow for the old lady. Craigslist has a youth fred bear setup, sights, release, 7 arrows, stabilizer, quiver, case--granted a youth bow, but setup and ready for $200. Thinking good is price as to what is on it. What u think? Thanks again guys, will do more tweeking. Thank

    Well I picked up a Norway string Tamer G, about the only one available in stock with the front mount, and still use the stabilizer. How close should they be from string to stop? Thanks.
