    80 lb PSE OMEN SPEED

    I'm looking at getting an 80 lb PSE OMEN. I shoot Easton Camo FMJ's. Has anyone shot an 80lb through a chronograph? My Dreamseason shoots them at 283 with a 28 inch draw and 286 at 29 inches. Just wanting to know how much fast my soon to be bow will be. Thanks for any help.

    OMG, it will be fast if you can pull it back. My 09 omen is set at 62lb,29"DL., 352gr total arrow wt. 330-333fps, with 372 gr.arrow 320-324fps. Will be interested to know your speeds when you get it.

    yeah, I'll definitely be posting it. i can't find one to shoot, no dealers get 80lb bows for their show rooms. i shot a 70 lb but they didn't have a chronograph.

    thanks Marku, you've hit a couple of my questions. i hope you are right. it will definitely be worth a 55fps increase over my dream season. i will be one happy hunter!

    U should gain about 1-3% (4-11 fps) over ibo for a 10# increase at ibo specs (80# 400 gr arrow 30" draw)

    thanks passinthrough. that seems to be another issue. everyone wonders why i want an 80lb. i shoot a 70 with ease and can't see a reason not to go to an 80. i guess if it is too much as everyone says i will back it off to 70.

    72lbs 386grain axis 326fps These are hard to get to IBO if It can even be done. I have not super tuned and could probably get 330's but its just my hunting bow. I would think 80lbs and that arrow will be about high 330's low 340's. Good Luck

    I went from 70-80 limbs on my Monster to 50-60#


    You really dont need it but if you can do it more power to ya. 100% of bowhunting for me is on deer so I dont need all that power for a pass thru. For 3D ive got a 300gr arrow and for hunting im going up to a 370gr arrow at 58lbs probley right a 300fps which is PLENTY fast for hunting. Plus its a very easy pull.

    Thumbs up

    I will let you know when mine arrives, my 70lber is shooting 324 fps with a 438 grain axis at 30 inches of draw, I'm thinking 10 lbs should give you around 20 fps so I'm guessing right around 344 which is about 115 ft lbs of KE, but I will definately be shooting a heavier arrow for that poundage.

    The only reason i would say anything about shooting 80 pounds these days is how hard it may be to find a target to stop the arrows, i shoot through alot of bag targets with my Z7 at 73 pounds. Back in my earlier days when i was at the gym no less than 5 times a week i had a bow set at 93 pounds that would shoot heavy aluminum arrows at around 290 fps, it would pretty much go through anything,and the times i used it on deer, well the results were very impressive, overkill yes, but i never chased a deer more than twenty yards with it. Good luck with it, keep some ice handy for your shoulder the first few weeks...

    You are hunting tanks or something of similar size and composition right? Otherwise count your arrow as "vanished into the void of space and time" every time you shoot at an animal. Trust me... at 74# my HF6 lost me more arrows than I ever could have launching them at clouds.

    A couple of guys in my archery league shoot a 72lb axe 6 @ 338 and at 79lbs it was a little above 350 the other one shoots an 86lb hoyt @342. The funny part is they both shoot goldtip 5575 and both bows papertune perfect.

    Omen's will do their listed IBO speeds if setup right and tuned right...Breathn on here has got plenty of them doing above their listed IBO speed.
