    I've tried to read several threads about the Elite Pulse. It appears different years of that bow were known for some qualities that were improved. The question....how can you tell the difference in the years the bow was made if you don't have of the sales slip or materials? Separate...

    I'm getting around 285 fps out of my BT-X with arrows that are finishing around 415 grains. Thats giving me just a little shy of 75 ft/lbs of KE. What are ya'lls opinions on this being enough to drive a 2" cut broadhead to and through its home? Specifically Grime Reaper Razorcut Whitetails...

    Tim Wells proves both arrow speed and broadhead cutting diameter are over-rated by killing a ram with a BLOW DART!. And I guess you could say the same about arrow weight as well. The well placed shot is numero uno! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuusKJa3Zzo

    im shooting a pse bow madness 30 ibo at 330 fps. i shoot 57 pound draw weight and 27 inch draw length. i shot a doe at 23 yards and got a pass threw with a g5 montec and she only ran 30 yards. But hardly any blood. Im trying to figure out what broadhead i want to shoot, i shoot a heavier arrow...

    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
  6. Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    This may be a dumb question but i am a noob so i will go ahead and ask. I saw a graphic for my bow (Elite Anwer) which showed velocity and kinetic energy for 2 different arrow weights. I would think that the energy would be the same as it is the bow that imparts the energy to the arrow and not...

    I've got the Bowtech Carbon Knight. I'm drawing 30.5" at 70 lbs. My arrows weigh in at 8.7 GPI, 100 gn tip. I do not have access to a chrono. Does anyone have a ballpark of about how fast my bow is shooting from experience with their own? The IBO is 330, so I was thinking somewhere in the low...

    Posting to help those interested in understanding KE and speed. Very good article: http://www.qdma.com/articles/momentum-beats-speed-for-lethal-arrow-hits
  9. General Archery Discussion
    Lots of people have been posting about this subject and some even get pretty riled up about it lets look at it in a real world scenario kinda way. Saying we are shooting all arrows from the same bow no adjustments to draw length or draw weight (30 DL/70 DW/330 IBO) for arguments sake, at what...

    Hey guys looking for some input on limbs.....I will be upgrading to a 2013 Strother soon:teeth: and am wondering if there is a huge difference between shooting 60/70 lb limbs as far as energy goes. Obviously I know there is but what is your experience with them? I have always shot 70lb bows and...
  11. General Archery Discussion
    Apparently due to arrow flight arrows shot from bows with the highest fps coming out of the bow are not necessarily the ones with the most kinetic energy at say 20 yards and for hunters KE is the main thing after arrow drop. Anyone know of anything that lists the KE for 20 yards for the Elite...
  12. Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    Hi everyone Iv been playing around with arrow weights in the easton calculator, and Im a bit confused. I was always under the impression that a heavier broad head would increase kn energy and there for penetration, but what iv found with my bow setup, is that a 433 grain arrow will have a higher...
  13. General Archery Discussion
    Is there gonna be a huge difference between 71ft.lbs vs 81ft.lbs? Im hunting whitetail.
  14. General Archery Discussion
    I mainly do hunting and the occasional 3D, I currently shoot Maxima KV's and well they fly great and all but I am also shooting a Matrix + which is no speed demon. My question is I know the Flatlines are lighter and therefore will be faster, but I dont want to sacrifice my kinetic energy to...
  15. Arrows & Strings
    Hey everyone. I just bought a 2011 Diamond outlaw and I want to make sure I get this right the first time rather than listen to the not so eductated staff at my local BPS, so i figured I would ask the pros so here goes. I am a 26.5 draw and will be shooting 60#. I have heard good things about...

    I have never shot a deer with a mechanical bh and was thinking about trying some this year. Either the Grim Reapers or dare I say it.... the Rage. I know that mechanicals take up some of the KE to open up. So my question is what would you say is the minimum KE to get a pass through on a...
  17. General Archery Discussion
    So a few issues and questions. The cams on my AM32 are not aligned/balanced straight (they don't line up perfect) looking at other AM32's the cams are all the same way. Should they have this little bit of lean? I put a G5 Expert II rest on, and have had 5 people look at the issue. Blazers...
