I may have one but never could figure out what it was and Hoyt was no help. It was a beast compaired to todays bows and the only markings were that it had fastflight limbs. Did the best I could with it and it served me well. Still have it. Can't give anymore info than that though.

Sorry, no info on fps (have the specs but they don't list speed for the years I saw, 92-94) but it also depends on the cam, control cam, speed cam, energy wheel, command cam or flash cam- there will be a letter on the cam (say it is command cam at 28" it should have C1T on top and C1B on bottom). Usually it is up to you the shooter to figure out what combo works best for you, that is also half the fun.

I'll take a stab
I have two SSFL's both with the "speed" cam. Shooting relatively high draw weights 76# @ 30.5" draw I am getting about 280+ with a 29" 360 ACC feathers and 85 grain tip. Not nearly as efficiant as todays models but who has $700-$1000 handy these days, actually on this site EVERYBODY! The bows are very accurate and forgiving once you figure out how to hold it. Once you arrive at a grip that allows the bow to shoot to it's potential it will simply dot em! I would suggest you shoot without the plastic insert unless you have sasquach hands. Have been shooting them for over 13 years now and like the longer ATA; it doesn't feel like a toy. Just set it up with a sensible arrow and rest system (I do not think the drop aways are really friendly to this bow) and you will have no problems what so ever. After all it WAS Hoyt's top of the line at the time. . .
G-Fade Quest Primal LH 72# @ 29.25"
Proline Strings BCY X
GT Velocity XT's 372gr
Speed = 309 fps
Grim Reapers....Watch em drop!
