Question for you High Country owners
Was just on the HC website (been a looong time). I see the new speed bow has an IBO rating up to 355, any one have one and tested - just wondering if it gets close to IBO in the real world. I am curious what this bow would get at 80 lbs with a 29 inch draw and a 400 grain arrow?

Mine at 29", ~72#, with a 324g arrow averaged 333fps...a 290g arrow, 349fps...and a 236g Speed Pro 5.5 it averaged 373fps. I shot 5 arrows and averaged their velocity using an F1 Chrony.

Kind of curious as to how you can expect to shoot light arrows like that and not end up with durability issues. Also, how about sound? (Aren't the bows noticeably louder when shooting light arrows like this?)

My limbs are just fine.... Unlike the '02 TomKat that "detonated" (limbs failed twice) many years ago!

HCA is warrantied to 3gpp. I also have some speedpro 5.5's and shooting them next to my Beman ICS 340's, there is no noticable sound differences. But that arrow SCREAMS! Much flatter trajectory.

I owned the xtreme and added some speed nocks and custom strings, 29 inch draw little over 70 pounds 236 grain arrow. chronoed at 410.9! check out the video on youtube, take in account I was in my garage with the door closed so it magnifies the sound. Im sure ill have people bash me over shooting such a light arrow. But remember High country warranties down to 3 gpi, also my kinetic energy was around 88 fp! that's equaled to 286 mph.
