    Haven't used a Chrono yet but I know it's fast enough to kill and slow enough to miss.

    Wow getting that much speed with a reasonably heavy arrow at a 26" DL is awesome!

    something is wrong with your Motive. you should be getting a lot better speeds than that.

    yeah, I thought I had closer to 320 fps when I first bought it, but added a new string and it has seemed slower

    Bear Agenda 6 71lbs, draw set at 28.5 but I am a 29in draw with every other bow I've shot, 360 grain Black Eagle Carnivore, pee and d loop, chrono'd today at 329fps and its a dream to shoot. Man, I love this bow.

    since I posted this I have been tinkering with my set up. I recently added wraps to my arrows which bumped their weight up to 410 grains each. I also put a couple twist in my buss cable and brought my draw weight up to 72 pounds. doing this with changing out my BowJax string sleeves to TPU speed nocks I am sending these arrows through my chronograph at 327 fps. this is putting my bows IBO at 340.3 fps.

    my chronograph is a cold chronograph. everytime I have compared my results to the closest pro shops chronograph, which is calibrated, mine has been consistently 6 fps slower. so taking this into consideration, I could be pushing 333 fps with my bow and hitting a 346.3 fps IBO. I won't know for sure until I can shoot it through a calibrated unit to know it's actual speed. either way, on the slow end with 327 fps is still smoking fast for a 410 grain arrow out of a 7" brace height bow!

    well done Bear Archery for hitting the mark once again!
