  1. New Crossbow Users Questions / FAQ
    I'm shopping to buy my first crossbow, and the 400-440 FPS are double the price of the 360-380 FPS. Huge difference Also, the few negative reviews I have read were all due to limbs breaking on the 400+ FPS.' I'm thinking an extra 40lbs of pressure on the limbs could be the difference between...

    Picked up a new EVL 34 with 80# limbs and the SE cams. Set up at 90% (guessing it comes this way). 28"DL, shooting 470 grain 300 spine victory vaps. Finally got a chance to chrono it at the shop and it comes in around 270 fps. I was expecting a little bit more out of this. Am I off base...
  3. General Archery Discussion
    Main Question- Is it better to hunt with a 460 grain arrow at 260fps, or a lighter arrow (425 grains or so) and try to hit the 280-290 range? Background- Im new to archery, Ive been shooting for about a year, just ordered the hoyt ventum 30 which I plan to hunt with come fall. My DL is 27.5"...

    Alright, so my compound broke and after spooking an 8 point while drawing with a winter coat on, I am going to try out a crossbow this year. I have narrowed it down to four different kinds, based on research. Curious what you all recommend. --Spoiler: I'm leaning towards the Killer Instinct...
  6. Bow Tuning
    Anyone else own one of these nice custom longbows and know approx. brace height and approx. IBO? With the not too recent passing of Mr. Abbott (RIP Feb, 2014) an incredibly talented master Bowyer, I haven’t had success reaching anyone there to find out what the brace height or IBO would be for...

    The specs on my Mathews Jewel bow says IBO is up to 325 FPS with #60 bow @ 29 inches. My Jewel is set to approx. #56 and my draw is 26 inches. Is there a way to calculate approx. IBO with these details without a chrono? Also, the specs on my APA Sidewinder says the IBO is up to 318, but I can’t...

    Will my low-poundage / low-FPS affect my choices when it comes to purchasing / enjoying a single-pin slider sight? I'm interested in being able to reach out to 80 yards or even 100+ — mainly for the sake of fun and shoots like the Total Archery Challenge. Right now, I pull back #58 (I could...
  9. Mission Archery Discussion
    Does anyone have any chrono data on their Mission Hype DT? I have these data points, but was looking for a couple more: https://www.grandviewoutdoors.com/gear/bow-report-mission-hype-dt/ # - Draw - Gr - fps 70 - 30 - 385 - 281 70 - 30 - 500 - 248 60 - 30 - 385 - 252 60 - 30 - 500 - 222

    Selling my 4 year old, 70 pound, Bear motive 6 flagship compound bow. It is currently set for a 29" draw but can be modified. This is a very fast and accurate bow (IBO 350 FPS). Although I love this bow, the reason i'm selling is that i'm simply looking to go to a lighter 60# draw weight...

    Bought this and ended up receiving another Barnett crossbow for my anniversary. So figured it can't hurt to sell it. Brand new, never shot. Will come in original box, not assembled to ensure safer delivery. Model 78320 Barnett Ghost 385 CRT 385 FPS 185lb Carbonlite riser with integrated...

    I am getting a Mathews Heli-M that I will be hunting whitetail with and I'm looking for advice on an arrow that will give me ample knockdown power** but also good speed** (3oofps+). Again I shoot 29" draw length at 70lbs. Any suggestion would be great!! ~MOOSE
  13. General Archery Discussion
    I'm sure the speed nock question has been hammered into the ground and all the posts I found were general "do they work" & in my experience from playing around with them on my bows they work for me. Now the question I have is; I am setting up two bows for some youth and one of the yutes...

    So I went to my local archery shop and had them see which arrows tune best to my bow. I currently have the Prime alloy with the PCXL cams. My buddy had me try the easton fmj injexion. When they did the test, they recommended the Goldtip XT hunters, Carbon Express Red 250 (with additonal...

    Here's the deal, I gave up 3D in the late 90's and was still rocking my High Counrty that I bought new when (I thought) they ruled the bow world for hunting. Well I decided to to get back into it and can not believe what all I remember but my 90's knowledge is as outdated as the old bow. Heres...

It's set on 28" draw at 45lbs can someone help with the FPS from this also? PSE contact us is a waste...

    I bought a used Hoyt Spyder Turbo for $525 from someone on AT last fall. When I got it, I noticed all the Hoyt factory stickers were not on the bow. Being new to archery, I did not think much about it, I rocked on. One day I checked the speed at a local archery shop and it was about 15 fps...

    Does anyone have information on these? Can they really give you an extra 10 fps? If so.. How?

    I am going to deer hunt with my Strike Eagle this year and I am reading online that you should only use expandable broadheads, such as the Rage broadhead, if your bow shoots over 270fps. I haven't had mine chronographed, but its a long draw set at 70lbs. Anyone have specs on how their Strike...
