    Default FC400 vs Crossfire

    just loooking at the web page. Why the difference in the IBO rating. Crossfire 30.5" AtA,nitro 2.0 cams,320-325fps. FC400 32.5" AtA,nitro 2.0 cams,335-345 IBO. I'm not currently in the market for a new bow, but for some reason the Crossfire appeals to me. Maybe it's because it seems to be ignored.

    That's a good question. I wouldn't think that the ATA would be the difference, but I guess it could be.

    it just confuses me since the AtA seems to be the only diff in the specs. BH is the same also

    My guess would be that with the shorter ATA, it's a slightly less efficient bow. Shorter power stroke, even though the brace is the same maybe. Probably a different riser/limb geometry that makes it less efficient.

    That makes sense.

    The Onza 3 is longer A2A than my FC400 but it is slower IBO so I can't break the code.

    Riser configuration looks different to me. The FC appears flatter (perpendicular) at the limb pockets causing the limbs to be more parallel. And from what I've heard the parallel limb design is more energy efficient. Less shock more thrust???? Just guessin'.
    One more thing...was there any speed assist on the FC like speed nocs?
