I shoot an Apex set at 60# 29" draw. Set up properly, excellent arrow flight, good groups, quiet, and comfortable, I shoot GT 22's 309gr. But it is slow, 278-280. My conquest 3 set up the same way, shooting the same arrows, shot 285-287 at high letoff. I really like the bow but it sure is no rocket. Probably will move to an Apex 7 or just wait and see what is the "new" thing from Matt next year.

I have mine set on 57 #, 28.5" DL, shoots a 290 gr arrow 282fps, not fast, but this isn't a speed bow, long ata, big brace height, but i am really satisfied with that speed because it is really smooth and forgiving, i could do a little tweeking on it and get 285 i am sure, but 282 is fast enough for me. The Apex is one of my all time favorite bows.

My Apex is set at 59 lbs....30.5" DL.....420 gr. arrow.....with Sims Leachs, nock-set and peep on string.....shooting finger-tab......256 fps...61 fpe....

Wonderful, smooth-shooting bow......I shoot with middle and ring finger below arrow, drop my index finger off string above arrow as I approach full-draw.....zero finger-pinch holding two below like that! :)

I shoot it equally as accurately (not more, not less) as my RedMan/Barnsdale and my former Hoyt ProTec.....but the Apex is much faster and quieter.

Hey RUNT! how yah doing?.........I just ran the above in TAP......(281.7) so I reckon you can trust any setup with that bow right out of the database!

Hows the hunting?
