09 82nd 29" 315 fps 71lbs wb dloop 1/8 g5 peep goldtip 7595 100gr field points = 315fps
destroyer 350 29" 312 fps 70lbs wb dloop 1/8 g5 peep st axis 340 100gr field points = 312fps
destroyer is definitely easier to shoot imo. longer valley than the 82nd and holds nice. i will hang on to the 82nd though. made my first archery kill with the 82nd this year.

I've taken 5 with my 82nd and I'm anxious to put the 340 up against my 82nd side by side with all the different arrows I have.

Right now, for hunting, I'm shooting a 465 grain arrow, 280 fps at 62 lbs. For 3D, 320 gr arrow, 327fps same poundage.

I know my friends 340 just came in BC'd 29" at 335!

my feelings on the valley as well. my 82nd was set like shooting a recurve. barley any valley.

my new 350 shoots 29" 71# 351 victory arrow g5 1/4" metapeep loop and those (2) rubber buttons that came on it @ 325-327.

my 09 82nd shoots 336 with a 350 gr cx at 71# and a 29 inch draw with a g5 peep and loop. it shot 333 out of the box before any tuning. i havent shot the destroyer 350 yet but pretty happy with the way the 82nd shoots. not to hi jack your thread just comparing the two

My BT Destroyer 350 extensively chronoed.

1.) 71.7# @ 29"DL, 350gr = 342 FPS

2.) 65# @ 29"DL, 368gr = 317 FPS (this is my current setup, hunting setup)

3.) 60# @ 29"DL, 368gr = 305 FPS (this WAS my old setup)

I know its not a 350 but I'll post it anyway.

had some time this afternoon to start adding my accesssories to my bow.got my dropzone rest,D-loop and my peep on.checked it on my draw board with a digital scale:
63lbs,390 grn arrow at 31" draw was 312fps!!!
at 63lbs its like cutting butter with a hot knife.I'm gonna leave right there.I will check it maxed out just to see what it'll do though :D

im going to have to make sure that my limbs are maxed out.....i had very little time to mess with it the day i bought it and ever since for that matter. it seems a little slow to me given your #1 scenario. mine was very similar to yours and it is much slower. maybe the chrono i was using was junk??? :confused:

Believe half of what you read on AT. And that's being generous.
