    I believe the split limb version is rated at 345 IBO, http://highcountryarchery.net/produc...-10-split-limb

    The solid limb trinary cam uses a sliding module system where the split limb x2 cam uses a replaceable mod system for draw length adjustment.

    Hands down best bow I've owned. Smooth draw. No vibrations. Not sure about weight. It does weigh more than my mathews outback or diamond black ice did but don't feel it when shooting. You will be pleased with this bow......lazy

    Tks! The heaviest black ice made was 3.8 and the outbacks came in at 4.3. Bummer, was really looking for under 4lbs.

    On a scale I'm not sure of weight. In hand it just feels heavier. I never thought I would shoot anything as smooth as my outback but this beats it. Try to get your hands on one and try it.

    Here's mine...with everything minus arrows...weighs about 6.7 lbs on my Berkley scales...which are quite accurate. It's a 70# maxed out at 71.5lbs, #4 mods with actual draw length of 28.5", shot a 324g arrows at 323 fps avg. for 5 arrows. It is whisper quiet and solid in the hand. Not a great photo...

    I'm getting pretty much same specs as limb. 361gr arrow. Average 325 fps. 1 note though the chrono I have access to is one that screws in stab hole not shoot thru type. Won't have true readings till I get to a local shop that has shoot thru.

    By comparison...avg speed for a 290g Victory HV350 was 340 fps...and a HCA Speed Pro 6.2 at 256g was 356 fps (I broke my only SP 5.5 which weighed 236g). The above mentioned 324g arrow was a Carbon Express Blue Streak 250. Speeds were measured through a Chrony outside in the shade on a mostly sunny day.

    tks guys! They seem to hit advertised speeds, but I'm not sure I want to carry around 6.7lbs in the elk woods. Thats 1.2lbs pounds heavier than my 09 Speedpro. After a day humping the mtns, it all adds up.

    Yeah, I weighed it against my '09 SP and found the same weight gain. It did see a really nice sling at the archery show in Columbus that would be great for elk hunting with any bow...check out www.bowhookslings.com.

    I received my X10 Split Limb last week. Got it set-up and this is what I am getting as far as speed out of it.

    26" Draw, about 65 lbs. with a Easton Lightspeed that weights right around 310 and I was shooting 275 fps. Not to bad for a 26" draw. I will try to post some pics it now that I have it setup.

    so I know this is a really old thread but I have some questions about my HC x 10 split limb. I doesnt even come close to ibo speed and a lot slower then i thought it would be. My specs are #80 and 29 draw with a 400 grain arrow and im getting 300 fps seems pretty slow. I shoot goldtip arrows with 300 spine was wondering if i needed a stiffer arrow because of the #80 and 125gr tip. I like to stay at 5per#. I have a qad arrow rest and im not getting any fletching rub. Any ideas or tuning tips I can get would be greatly appreciated.

    My Ot2 subscription has expired or I would run the numbers for ya but what you can do is shoot a bare shaft at 20 yards. If it flies straight you're spined right. If the knock end of that shaft makes a hard left its to weak. Hard right your to stiff. This is for a right handed shooter so reverse it if you are left handed. If its weak you need a stiffer shaft or it needs to be shorter. If its stiff the shaft needs to be longer or add point weight.

    ok Thank you I will have to give that a try according to the gold tip site #80 with 125 grain tips i would need more spine. If i dipped just under 5gr per# then the arrow spine would be fine. that is according to gold tip web sight. I don't think is a good idea to go 400gr arrow.

    A 400gr arrow is a little light. I always shoot for 7.5grs per pound so my 60lbders shoot a 450gr. 7.5 grs per pound seems to be the best blend of penetration and speed. ymmv

    I wouldn't mind being heavier but if I am already down to 300fps don't want to be any slower. This bow shouldn't be that slow pushing a 5 gr per arrow or am I wrong.

    my 09 speedpro ibo'd at 345 new. I had a 14 speedpro for a while and I think it was about the same speed but in the end I got rid of the pos. They made to many changes and ruined that model, it was untunable. The spit limb should shoot at least 340 with a 5gr per pound arrow.

    thats what i would think as well and being #80 should more then make up for my 29 inch draw. I really like that bow but I bought it cause it was "fast". but 300 fps with a 5gr per arrow is bull crap.

    If I dont think I would want to be anywhere near 7.5 gr per at #80. a 600gr arrow might be a to heavy lol.

    yea, lol but about 500grs would be deadly on everything.
